Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Board 1GB LPDDR2 BCM2837 Quad-Core 1.2GHz 64 bit CPU
with WiFi&Bluetooth 4.1
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B SB
The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B looks identical to the Pi 2 B at first glance. It is the same size and has much
of the same components on board. So what is the difference? The new Pi 3 brings more processing power
and on-board connectivity, saving you time with the development of your applications. Perfect for your Internet
of Things (IoT) designs.
Pi 3 compared to Pi 2
1. More processor speed. The CPU on the Pi 3 is one and a half times faster at 1.2 GHz. Your Pi board performs better.
2. On-board connectivity. The Pi 3 features 802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN and Bluetooth Classic & Low Energy (BLE). You
can get connected much quicker without the need for any external device.
3. 2.5 A power supply. With more processor speed and on-board connectivity, you’ll need more power. Power supplies
for previous Pi boards will not be sufficient. You will need the Official Raspberry Pi Power Supply
4. New components. The Pi 3 features a chip antenna where status LEDs were located previously. The status LEDs are
still on the board, right next to the microSD card slot.
New to Raspberry Pi?
The Raspberry Pi is a single computer board — developed to encourage and aid the teaching of programming and
computing. It is also a fantastic starting point for the development of the Internet of Things (IoT) projects. The low cost
and ‘plug and play’ nature of Pi makes for a board that is accessible to all and has numerous connectivity options.
Pi is the perfect experimental tool, whether you want to use it as a desktop computer, media centre, server or monitoring/security
device within your home. No limits. Linux-based operating systems run on the Pi with plenty of access to free software and downloads.
What is more, there is a great Pi community out there — look atDesignSpark, the design engineer community at RS.
