NEC begins including Raspberry Pi boards in its largest displays


I still remember how long ago we talked about Rapberry Pi controllers, a kind of cards that were born with the purpose of teaching programming to anyone who wanted to learn, as well as so that makers could play with them. Little by little time has passed and those first fun and little cared for projects have gone giving way to much more serious ones that have been preceded by several evolutions of the Rapberry Pi itself. In its third generation, we could say that things have gotten much more serious.

With this in mind, today I want to talk to you about the special case of NEC, a Japanese screen manufacturer quite famous throughout the world that has decided incorporate a Raspberri Pi plate into your larger panels. Specifically, we are talking about those models that move between 40 and 98 inches and that, from now on, will mount a kind of connection on their back that will give the possibility of, in case of becoming obsolete, we can change the built-in Rapberry Pi for a newer model or with superior features.

but I do not understand what you wrote

By now you will surely be wondering what this is for or what use it can have. As they have commented from NEC, thanks to these modules, baptized with the name of 'Pi Compute Module'serve to get your screen be much smarter and have better device connectivity and above all, compatibility with the already known as the internet of things. In addition to that, thanks to the orientation that Rapberry Pi has always had and its fame, it will allow NEC to offer its customers a screen with greater capacity personalization without it having to raise the price considerably.

If you are interested in what NEC is proposing to us, tell you that the company expects the first modules and screens to be available on the market at early 2017.
