Raspberry Pi Model B + arrives just in time for Pi Day 2018

It's March 14, which means it's the Pi Day for math lovers everywhere (I appreciate maths, I just do not understand it). To mark the occasion, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has a brand new version of its small, affordable computer for DIY enthusiasts, the new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B +.

This last iteration has the same footprint as the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B and the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, which means that it's about the size of a deck of cards, but now it has a quad core 640bit processor clocked at 1.4GHz, Wi-Fi connectivity 802.11ac 2.4GHz and 5GHz dual band, Bluetooth 4.2 / BLE and Gigabit Ethernet with maximum network transfer speeds of up to 300 Mbps, three times that of Model B.

The Pi 3 Model B + also has an HDMI port for display output, as well as four USB 2.0 ports, a microSD port for storing data and system d & # 39; And Power over Ethernet (PoE) PoE HAT add-on that will be available soon as an official accessory. He also has both. CSI and DSI port to connect the Raspberry Pi camera and touch screens.

The new top clock speed of this version is possible through the improvement of the integrity of the power supply and the thermal design, and the dual-band Wi-Fi included on the card already has a modular certification of conformity. in the design of finished products for sale to consumers and commercial without having to do a load of testing and certification on the end of the buyer.

The new updated Pi 3 seems to be a good upgrade for personal and professional projects, and is available from Raspberry Pi's official business partners via its website.
