Raspberry Pi Manufacturing
The Raspberry Pi was invented in the United Kingdom and now it is manufactured there as well. Production of the Linux-based mini-computer started in China back at the start of 2012, but has been gradually moving to the Welsh Sony factory in Pencoed South Wales since September 2012. In April, Sony announced that the 500,000th Pi has just rolled off their lines. Let us see the manufacturing process of the Raspberry Pi.
From start to finish it is showed the Raspberry Pi's manufacturing process at the Sony factory in Pencoed South Wales: assembly, inspection and testing. Claire Doyle, Head of Raspberry Pi Global Division at Element 14, and Gareth Jones, Senior Manager New Business Development at Sony Uk Tech, talk us through the process.
