BitScope Blade – The industrial solution for Raspberry Pi

BitScope Blade Uno, Duo, Quattro.jpg

 

Raspberry Pi and BitScope work well together to build reliable industrial strength physical computing platforms for test, measurement and data acquisition.

BitScope Blade offers a complete industrial quality, reliable power and mounting solution build for Raspberry Pi. This includes flexible multi-channel test & measurement systems using BitScope Micro and Uno up to cluster computing solutions for some serious data processing built with Duo or Quattro mounted in Blade racks.

BitScope Blade is also well suited for stand-alone servers and workstations, cluster computing and cloud hosting infrastructure, remote sensing, general physical computing and in education.

There are 3 products launching:

  • BitScope Blade UNO,
  • BitScope Blade DUO,
  • BitScope Blade QUATTRO.
