These companies sell the Raspberry Pi online.[6] Egoman produces a version for distribution solely in China and Taiwan, which can be distinguished from other Pis by their red colouring and lack of FCC/CE marks. The hardware is the same across all manufacturers. In 2014, the Raspberry Pi Foundation launched the Compute Module, which packages a BCM2835 with 512 MB RAM and an eMMC flash chip into a module for use as a part of embedded systems.[10] Hardware[edit] Processor[edit] Performance of first generation models[edit] Overclocking[edit] RAM[edit] Networking[edit]
