Durable Construction

Experimentation is often performed outside the safety of a lab environment. Gadgets usually contain breadboards and sensitive electronics that require a layer of protection, or better yet - a layer of armour. Proto Armour for Raspberry Pi Mini is made from aircraft-grade aluminum using state-of-the-art CNC equipment at our facility in Orchard Park, New York USA. Parts are machined to exacting specifications, resulting in an enclosure that fits your Pi and camera like a glove.

Passive Cooling

The Raspberry Pi supports overclocking, but this practice generates additional heat that could damage the board. Proto Armour for Raspberry Pi Mini dissipates heat from the CPU. A large heat sink is machined directly into the top half of the housing and interfaces with the CPU surface using a thermally conductive pad.

Security Friendly

The Raspberry Pi is a very cool gadget. Whether it is a classroom setting where several Pi boards need to be attached to student benches, or at a hackerspace meetup where a new creation is on display, it is critical to properly secure sensitive and valuable hardware. Proto Armour for Raspberry Pi Mini is assembled using machine screws that are threaded from the bottom and hidden from unintended guests. The integrated security hole and key ring facilitates tethering the enclosure to a tabletop using a small cable or chain.


While functionality and quality are equally priority number one, affordability goes without being said. In line with the Raspberry Pi's cost effective design, Proto Armour for Raspberry Pi is designed for manufacture, resulting in a lower cost of manufacture that enables low cost of ownership. New enclosure and accessory design is a careful balance of functionality, robust construction, and affordability for all.
