RS completes EMC compliance tests on Raspberry Pi boards

RS Components and Allied Electronics have completed testing on the first batch of Raspberry Pi boards, the low-cost credit-card sized computer board designed to enable children and IT enthusiasts to develop programming skills.

The first boards have passed emission testing to Class A standard and comply with the requirements of the electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) directive EN50081-2 (1993) for the use of information technology equipment (ITE) in industrial or office environments. Equipment used in a residential environment may be susceptible to radio interference and to ensure that Raspberry Pi customers are fully aware of this, each of the boards will be supplied with a warning statement in accordance with EMC regulations.

“This is excellent news for Raspberry Pi customers,” commented Glenn Jarrett, Head of Electronics Marketing at RS Components. “We have thousands of people eagerly awaiting their boards, and this brings us another step closer to delivering Raspberry Pis across the world.”
