Raspberry Pi Zero top

The Raspberry Pi Zero

The Zero has arrived! Did you place a pre-order for the Raspberry Pi Zero? Likely you will have noticed it has already shipped! Customers in Western Canada should start to see their Raspberry Pi Zeros as early as tomorrow. Further East will take a few extra days, but rest assured, they are on their way!

Haven’t ordered one yet? At this time we are sold out of the Raspberry Pi Zero but we do have a few of the Raspberry Pi Zero Starter Kits left in stock. If you would like to get your hands on a Raspberry Pi Zero in Canada before Christmas these are a great option! The kits include most of the bits and pieces required to get the Zero up and running – for more information please check out the Raspberry Pi Zero Starter Kit product page.

The Raspberry Pi Zero – Pre Order

By popular demand we have started accepting Raspberry Pi Zero pre-orders!

There are two separate pre-orders available; the first pre-order will be for the Raspberry Pi Zero and the second pre-order will be for the Raspberry Pi Zero Basic Kit. Both items will have a limit of 1 per customer for now; we will allow people to order one of each in the same order!

The Raspberry Pi Zero

This evening the Raspberry Pi Foundation unveiled its newest creation: The Raspberry Pi Zero. The Zero is about as cheap as it gets with single board computing (well I guess we will see about that!) but still packs a punch. At $5.00 USD this little Pi manages to have a 1GHz single core processor with 512 MB of RAM, a micro-HDMI connector, USB micro, and an unpopulated 40 pin GPIO header. The Zero scraps the camera and display ports, Ethernet, most of the USB, and analog audio/video ports. It is truly a stripped down version of the Raspberry Pi concept; but as an exercise in making a low cost, relatively high powered, single board computer… the results are astounding.

Update: We are now taking pre-orders for the Raspberry Pi Zero.

As there is a very limited number of Pi Zeros available we are certain the demand will quickly outstrip the supply. We will be taking pre-orders for this product in the near future – if you would like to receive an email from us once this pre-order becomes available please drop us an email at pre-order@bc-robotics.com
