Appearance of 'Raspberry Pi 3 Model A +' which is equivalent in performance to Pi 3 Model B + and cheaper
In the single board computer "Raspberry Pi" series, the A series " Raspberry Pi 3 Model A + " of the space-saving / cut-off model was renewed. Raspberry Pi 3 Model B + has become an attractive product that can obtain the same performance at a smaller size and at a lower price.
New product: Raspberry Pi 3 Model A + on sale now at $ 25 - Raspberry Pi
This is the new model "Raspberry Pi 3 Model A +". Like the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B +, it has the latest SoC "Broadcom BCM 2837 B 0". The CPU's Cortex-A 53 is the same as the 4 core 1.4 GHz, the GPU's VideoCore IV is 400 MHz and Raspberry Pi 3 Model B +. The memory has 512 GB of LPDDR 2.
The size is 65 mm × 56 mm × 12 mm and inherits the conventional form factor, the interface layout is also unchanged. It corresponds to Wi-Fi 4/5 (IEEE 802.11 b / g / n / ac) and Bluetooth 4.2 / LE.
Video output is HDMI 1.4 output, composite 3.5 mm 4 pole jack (also dual audio), DSI 3 types, for audio output I 2 S pin header is installed. It has 1 USB 2.0 port, microSD card slot and 40 pin GPIO pin header.
With the exception of wired LAN ports and memory capacity differences, the same performance as Raspberry Pi 3 Model B + is realized with a small size. For Raspberry Pi 3 Model B + with a price of $ 35 (about 4000 yen), Raspberry Pi 3 Model A + is cheap as $ 25 (about 2800 yen).
In addition, Raspberry Pi 3 Model B + is followed by Raspberry Pi official hard case "3A + Case 2".
Of course the size is perfect.
"Raspberry Pi 3 Model A +" which realizes the same performance as Raspberry Pi 3 Model B + with a smaller size will be released in early December 2018. KSY plans to sell it as soon as the procedure concerning the technique is completed in Japan.
