Season 3 - Episode #2 - The release of RP2040
The Raspberry Pi is a series of small single-board computers developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation in association with Broadcom. The Raspberry Pi project originally leaned towards the promotion of teaching basic computer science in schools and in developing countries.
The original model became so popular that it sold outside its target market for uses such as robotics and is widely used in many areas. It is typically used by computer and electronic hobbyists, due to its adoption of HDMI and USB devices, and has thus far sold over 30 million boards.
We speak to Roger Thornton, Director of Applications, Raspberry Pi, about the history of the company and the introduction of the RP2040 – the first Raspberry Pi developed microcontroller.
