Raspberry Pi Piggyback Extension – The Icing On The Cake

VIENNA, Austria, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The new RasPiComm extension board offers a wide array of new features for the $35 mini-computer expanding its possibilities. They include additional ports, a real-time clock and a four-way joystick input device. The Austrian manufacturing company Amescon believes the foreseeable future to hold near endless possibilities for users in everyday life even though the current model is specifically aimed at developers and tinkers. First results have been promising.

Vienna, 25 th of March 2013

Approximately 1 million mini-computers have been sold in 2012 according to Alan Mycroft, member of the Raspberry Pi foundation. The foundation originally expected the volume of sales to hover around 500.000 units. 4.000 mini computers leave the factory in the United Kingdom each day. These numbers have convinced companies all over the world to develop further components and expand the framework. Daniel Amesberger (, CEO of Amescon (, is one of those developers.

"We envision our RaspiComm ( extension board to enhance daily tasks through various applications. The Open-Source structure has allowed for near endless possibilities. Our small ecosystem provides a source for home and industrial automation applications. We have sold over 1.000 RaspiComm's and counting since worldwide distribution has been initiated."

Motivated, driven and encouraged through hundreds of comments and more than 70.000 daily visits on his blog Daniel Amesberger developed the RaspiComm in 2012 and finalized manufacturing by the end of the year. The extension board will offer serial ports allowing communication with up to 256 devices. The various application possibilities have been demonstrated by the international customers and community.

"Our clients implement the RaspiComm in various ways such as:
  • an access-control unit for club cards (e.g. access to a 24/7 gym)
  • a surveillance unit for photovoltaic/solar system
  • for home automation systems
  • a controlling device for stepper motors for multi shot captures of mobile cameras

A RaspiComm unit is currently being specifically customized for implementation into a satellite which is supposed to orbit the earth for many years."
