Why would someone customize a Raspberry Pi rather than using an existing development kit?
This would be down to cost, performance and software. Customers are interested in the Raspberry Pi because of the Broadcom chip and the solution that offers. The Raspberry Pi is a low cost base for a very powerful SBC. The software the Raspberry Pi runs on is interchangeable in their final design. It is very easy to code yourself and it is very easy to program into existing applications.
We’ve seen the Raspberry Pi used to create some amazingly innovative end solutions from both Makers and Professional Designers alike. To take the next step and commercialize these solutions, it may often require subtle but important changes to the form factor and/or the technical parameters of the sub-components on the Raspberry Pi board.For example certain components on the Raspberry Pi board may need adapting to be robust enough to withstand harsh environments, like broader min/max operating temperatures. Or the Pi layout may need adjusting to integrate into a single board, the Pi platform with the shield / HAT they have designed specific to their application – thus optimizing system cost.
What is the minimum order quantity (MOQ)?
Considering the cost, which will heavily depend on the nature of the modification, we suggest you plan on a quantity order for at least 3000 units. Contact our sales @ firstname.lastname@example.org and find out more!
