Raspberry Pi 3B+
Raspberry Pi 3B+
SKU: RAS-135 - Mfg Part Number:
The Raspberry Pi 3+ is the newest version of the Raspberry Pi 3. With the addition of Dual Band 802.11ac Wifi and vastly improved Ethernet speeds, this new version of the Pi 3 is even more capable on the connectivity side. To further aid in network connectivity, the Pi 3+ can now support Power over Ethernet (PoE) with the addition of an external add on board. For those using the Pi in a commercial application: the dual band wireless has modular compliance certification – making this much easier to include in final products without further testing of the wireless. And last but not least, better thermal management helps this new Pi clock even higher over the previous version at 1.4GHz.
So what is the Raspberry Pi? It is a single board computer roughly the size of a credit card developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation in the UK. The Pi was designed to promote basic computer science in schools and has grown to become so much more. It can act like a desktop computer, using a standard keyboard, mouse and monitor allowing you to browse the internet and learn to code; It can work as a media center connected to your TV, playing 1080P movies; It can act as a stand alone device much like an Arduino whirring away in the background running your next cool robot… The possibilities are endless!
If you have a bunch of accessories for the Raspberry Pi 2 or Raspberry Pi 3 – Good news! The Raspberry Pi 3+ is compatible with most of the previous accessories; the form factor, location of existing connectors, headers, and power connectors are all the same!
