BitScope Designs launches new Blade for Raspberry Pi

BitScope Designs, developer and manufacturer of cost effective embedded mixed signal test, measurement and data acquisition systems, announces the global release of a new range of BitScope Blade available exclusively via global distribution partner element14 and its associated resellers. BitScope Blade is an infrastructure platform. It enables Raspberry Pi to be used to build reliable physical computing solutions for industrial, commercial and educational applications.

Each Blade is a compact motherboard that powers and mounts one or more Raspberry Pi in a
robust, simple and scalable way. Blades are designed to build solutions ranging from small
stand-alone servers, routers and workstations up to full size compute clusters, private clouds,
and Industrial IoT, Edge and Fog computing systems.

BitScope Blades can be used with simple plug packs, a wide range of batteries, solar and other
variable power sources, low cost uninterruptible power supplies and power over Ethernet
solutions operating at up 48V. They may be used individually on the desktop, wall mounted or
multiple Blades may be installed in racks for large scale deployment.

Blades offer access to Raspberry Pi I/O for displays, cameras, keyboards, expansion boards
and peripherals including BitScopes, Raspberry Pi HATs and the Raspberry Pi 7” Touchscreen
Display. BitScope Designs also publishes open source installers and software for managing
embedded and cluster computing solutions built with BitScope Blade.
BitScope Blade is available in three editions:
● BitScope Blade Uno a flexible power and mounting solution for one Raspberry Pi and
optional HAT. It is the perfect computing platform for makers, students and engineers
using Raspberry Pi.
● BitScope Blade Duo is a desktop, rack or wall mountable power and mounting solution
for a pair of Raspberry Pi, ideal for building reliable cost effective stand-alone desktop
& server systems with Raspberry Pi.
● BitScope Blade Quattro is a desktop, rack or wall mountable power and mounting
solution for four Raspberry Pi, ideal for creating compute clusters, private clouds or
build farms with Raspberry Pi.
