How to identify Raspberry Pi Made in UK and Made in China

Postby SevenZero » Sat Apr 27, 2013 4:53 am

Many people asks how to identify the Raspberry Pi that is Made in UK with the one Made in China (though there are Chinese duplicates, I'm not talking about those. I'm talking about official Raspberry Pi's that are Made in China). It is very easy.

Why don't you lankatronics guys mind to build a local version of RPI.
If you guys could get the ISO certificate then I don't care, I buy the local one.

since the schematics are all open , there's nothing to hide.

May be the 700 Broadcomm Arm[ http://www.raspberrypi.org/wp-content/u ... herals.pdf ]  is little bit expensive. I'm studying these days with
a mobil baseband chip like this, http://www.kit-iphone.ru/images/stories ... MT6225.pdf
I'll share if success. I mean new version of Raspeberry pi, Why? Strange? Not said , but it said
'confidential', tooo funny confidential docs are all over the internet , even as static context.
Anybody with few clicks on google could find them up.

I respect your thought on Sri Lankan products. But UK version of the Raspberry Pi is Made in the UK and fantastic in quality. So as a help to the effort on building such a wonderful device, LankaTronics respects and supports Raspberry Pi original product. We do the same respect to Original Arduino products.
