Inside the Raspberry Pi Factory

Curious where your pint-sized Raspberry Pi came from? You might be surprised to learn it was built, tested, and packaged all in an equally pint-sized factory in South Wales.

Nick Heath of Tech Republic takes us on a photo tour of the Raspberry Pi factory with a stop at each stage of production and testing. The photo above shows one of the manual construction steps, the insertion of the large components such as the USB and Ethernet ports.

Hit up the link below for the full tour.

Raspberry Pi: Inside the Pi Factory [Tech Republic]

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Does it surprise anyone to know this factory is in Pencoed, Wales and owned by Sony?

    It kind of makes me wonder why they’re not made in America. But that’s for another forum.
