Getting Started With The Raspberry Pi 3
The Raspberry Pi 3B++ is the newest version of the popular single board computer by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. The Pi 3B++ (or Pi 3B+) is a huge step up in terms of computing power and features 64bit architecture. In addition to a bunch more computing power this new version of the Raspberry Pi also features built in Bluetooth LE and Dual Band WiFi. Enough about the board, let’s jump into this Raspberry Pi 3B++ tutorial!
A Few Considerations:
Before we set up this brand new Raspberry Pi there are a few things to note:
• While the Pi3+ has a lot of built in features, there are peripherals that are required.
• The added features have increased the power requirements. We recommend a 2.0A power supply at a minimum – our 5v 2.5A power supply is a great fit.
How It Works:
The Pi3B+, like all previous versions of the Raspberry Pi, take advantage of many of the electronics found in modern smartphones and other portable electronics. The mass production of these parts combined with the sheer number of Pi being built (Along with many other factors) allow the Raspberry Pi Foundation to build a very low cost single board computer with astonishing performance. Rather than a standard phone operating system; the Pi runs various flavours of Linux. In this tutorial we will be working with Raspbian which is based off of Debian Linux.
