“We are excited to offer the entire Raspberry Pi product portfolio to Digi-Key’s customers around the globe,” said David Sandys, director of technical marketing at Digi-Key. “Raspberry Pi truly shares our commitment to come alongside engineers around the world and inspire them as they take their innovations from ideation through design and prototyping to production,” he added.

For Raspberry Pi, it opens up horizons and customer opportunities. “We have continued to see a huge acceleration in the use of Raspberry Pi products across a wide range of industrial applications, so we are very excited to add Digi-Key as an authorised distributor focused on serving the industrial market for us globally,” said Mike Buffham, chief commercial officer at Raspberry Pi.
