PiCockpit is a property of pi3g, which also has buyzero.de, an Approved Reseller of the Raspberry Pi.
Here’s how stock for various Raspberry Pis will look for this year.
Raspberry Pi 4 availability in 2022: your best bet
The Raspberry Pi 4 and the Compute Module 4 are still your best bet.
They continue to be in short supply until the end of this year, but we are able to support our end customers and industrial customers with stock continuing to come in.
For Compute Module 4 volume orders, you should plan for delivery in September or later, depending on the volume of order.
Raspberry Pi 3 availability in 2022: diminishing
We will get less Raspberry Pi 3 boards through the coming months of 2022.
However, if you are an industrial customer and you have a Pi 3-based design and can’t transition to the Raspberry Pi 4, you can get in touch with us to discuss your options.
Raspberry Pi Zero series availability: most difficult to get in 2022
The Pi Zero series is, however, the one which is the most difficult to get this year.
If you are planning to do a design based on the Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W, you should anticipate to get stock for volume requirements only in 2023.
We have switched to supporting customers only for sampling purposes.
As a member of Raspberry Pi’s Approved Reseller network, pi3g sells Raspberry Pis at an accessible and affordable price.
Scalpers have taken extreme measures to take advantage of the shortage. Prices of the Raspberry Pis have gone through the roof as a result.
pi3g is doing its best to identify scalpers and cancel their orders.
It’s in the best interest of the Raspberry Pi community to avoid buying Raspberry Pis at inflated prices. Every time people buy from the scalpers, it gives them an incentive to buy from official sources, turn around and list it at an inflated price.
By choosing not to buy from them, we can discourage this practice.
Got a project and need advice?
Despite the shortages, pi3g has deep technical knowledge and we can help you discuss your Raspberry Pi project requirements and support you with stock and information. We can help you find alternatives and solutions based on what we have.
