Happy New Raspberry Pi Day!

Happy Pi Day! And happy new Raspberry Pi Day as well! That’s right – there is a new Raspberry Pi on the market! The Raspberry Pi 3+ is a slightly improved version of the original Raspberry Pi 3. The 3+ sees a modest increase in CPU speed (1.4GHz) , Dual Band 802.11ac WiFi, and improved Ethernet speed. Along with all that, they have added POE capabilities (with the addition of a separate POE HAT) and the dual band wireless has modular compliance certification – making this much easier to include in final products without further testing of the wireless.

Interested in picking one of these up? We expect to have them in stock in the coming weeks – in the mean time feel free to pre-order to reserve yours today!
