Arm acquires minority stake in Raspberry Pi for IoT development


Arm Holdings and Raspberry Pi have entered into an agreement, with Arm investing in Raspberry Pi. The investment has also resulted in Arm acquiring a minority stake in Raspberry Pi, strengthening their long-standing partnership. Together, the two companies are focused on collaborating to provide solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) developer community.

With the increasing demand for edge computing driven by IoT and AI applications, Raspberry Pi’s guides are empowering individuals and businesses worldwide with affordable and high-performing computing capabilities. This ongoing partnership, established in 2008, has resulted in the release of numerous Arm-based Raspberry Pi products catering to students, enthusiasts, and commercial developers.

The latest addition to their lineup, Raspberry Pi 5, was launched in late October.

“Arm and Raspberry Pi share a vision to make computing accessible for all, by lowering barriers to innovation so that anyone, anywhere can learn, experience, and create new IoT solutions,” said Paul Williamson, a senior vice president and general manager of the Internet of Things business at Arm. “With the rapid growth of edge and endpoint AI applications, platforms like those from Raspberry Pi, built on Arm, are critical to driving the adoption of high-performance IoT devices globally by enabling developers to innovate faster and more easily. This strategic investment is further proof of our continued commitment to the developer community and to our partnership with Raspberry Pi.”

“Arm technology has always been central to the platforms we create, and this investment is an important milestone in our longstanding partnership,” said Eben Upton, a CEO at Raspberry Pi. “Using Arm technology as the foundation of our current and future products offers us access to the compute performance, energy efficiency, and extensive software ecosystem we need, as we continue to remove barriers to entry for everyone, from students and enthusiasts to professional developers deploying commercial IoT systems at scale.”
