Raspberry Pi has become one of the most sought-after products in the recent months and as one of the exclusive distributors, element14 has been at the forefront of launching its variants and related products. Visitors to the element14 booth will get to test the Raspberry Pi Model B 512MB (order code 2191863), PiFace Digital (order code 2218566) - an easy to use board that allows the Raspberry Pi to control and sense physical devices such as lights, motors and sensors, and Embedded Pi (order code 2301086) a triple-play platform for Raspberry Pi, Arduino™ and 32-bit embedded ARM that allows users to  get the most out of each platform. In addition, the much anticipated Raspberry Pi camera board (order code 2302279) enables the Raspberry Pi to capture images and video. Custom designed for Raspberry Pi, the board comes with a 5-megapixel sensor which fits on the board's upper surface.

Raspberry Pi owners can now quickly and easily turn their Pi into a low-cost media centre for their home or office, with a new XBMC bundle from element14 available at http://in.element14.com/2310263. The XBMC bundle (order code 2310263) is a simple out-of-the-box solution allowing users to stream content from devices on their home network through their Raspberry Pi, turning the screen or their TV into a media centre.

Also available from element14 is the BeagleBone Black - the latest member of the BeagleBone family, which has become a favourite open source hardware platform for developers across the world. The lower-cost, higher performance development platform BeagleBone Black (order code 2291620) is based on TI's Sitara AM3358 processor that features an ARM Cortex™- A8 processor running at 1GHz, an onboard HDMI, and delivers double the memory.
