Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B - The long-awaited Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is finally here! Can you believe it has been 4 years since the model B? It is the 3rd-generation Raspberry Pi system that comes in the size of a credit card.Superseding the original Raspberry Pi Model B+ as well as Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, the integration can be used many several applications.
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B - Product Description
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the latest involvement (third-generation) in Raspberry Pi. It took place of Raspberry Pi 2 Model B back in February 2016 by hosting a myriad of advanced specifications and technologies. It brings more powerful and faster performance than its predecessors, thanks to the latest Broadcom 2837 ARMv8 64-bit processor.
Further, the latest Raspberry Pi invention installs inbuilt wireless & Bluetooth alongside supporting more powerful external USB devices. Technically, it captures two crucial upgrades. First, it carries a powerful quad-core processor with a speed of up to 1.2 GHz.Secondly, the unit brings a BCM43143 Wi-Fi chip in place to ensure wireless connectivity without additional equipment.
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B undergoes robust testing protocols to be efficient for every project execution. Hence, it abides by the following European standards:
- Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive 2014/30/EU
- Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive 2011/65/EU
This third-generation Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is an excellent tool for hackers, makers, and educators because of its small footprint, low power consumption, and low price. Use it to teach kids to code; put it in a robot for powerful processing capabilities; turn it into a killer media center for your living room.
This new Pi comes packed with new exciting fillings such as a 64-bit architecture and integrated 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1 and BLE on the board - no more Bluetooth or WiFi dongles eating up your USB ports!
The processor is a quad-core 64-bit 1.2GHz ARM Cortex A7 CPU which is 50% faster than its predecessor. Although RAM is the same as it's predecessor, it is now faster at 900MHz. The same goes for its VideoCore IV graphics processor, which has jumped from 250MHZ to 400MHz. The board's footprint remains the same size as the Pi2, but with more exciting features and backward compatibility. Order yours today!
