Raspberry Pi Professional Expert Day in Italy shows increasing interest in use for the Raspberry Pi for professional applications

Farnell element14, the Development Distributor, is hosting a day for Raspberry Pi experts in Italy on the 25th October 2018. The event will take place at Istituto Tecnico Tecnologico Montani in Fermo and will focus on professional and industrial applications of the Raspberry Pi single-board computer and the Compute Module board, specifically designed for industrial applications.

Hosted in the historic Museo dell'Innovazione e della Tecnica Industriale (MITI) from ITT Montani, the event is organised with the support of the Raspberry PI Foundation and Tektronix, leader in the Test Measurement business.

Expert engineers from Farnell element14 customers will give presentations and demos of real design solutions based on Raspberry Pi in different sectors: 3P engineering, will showcase their Raspberry PI based solutions for health and industry, Aeridani, will introduce a demo board for general purpose and EST Engineering, will give an overview on their smart home solution for the kitchen.

The event will also include a presentation by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. There will be Raspberry Pi demos and accessories on display, and the opportunity to talk to experts about bespoke services from Farnell element14.

The day will end with a specific focus on solutions for education. ITT Montani will show their low-cost and easy to implement solution for the electronic registry. The school is dedicated to developing highly skilled students in electronics through innovative programme and scholarships. This year Farnell element14 partnered with ITT Montani supplying 30 Raspberry PI Kits to equip a laboratory as part of their electronics class. Thanks to the good connection with the local business, students are then employed by electronics companies in the area.

“As the Development Distributor we seek to support customers as they develop their products for market, whether that is providing the right products, expertise or opportunities for customers to learn from their collective experiences. This event will provide a forum for customers to share their experiences developing and designing professional solutions based on the Raspberry Pi.” says Daniel Dahan, Regional Sales Director for Southern Europe at Farnell element14: “Customers will be able to talk with experts about the opportunities, challenges and benefits of using Raspberry Pi, and complementary products, for professional solutions.”
