Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+
Available now from element14, an Avnet company
The new Raspberry Pi 3 series: everything you love about the Raspberry Pi 3 is now included in the new improved 3 Model B+ featuring faster processing and networking as well as improved connectivity. Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ also has better thermal management and faster Ethernet with the same mechanical footprint as both the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B and 3 Model B.
- Lightning fast processing and input power: A new revision of the Broadcom BCM2837 processor allows the new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ to run more than 10% faster than the current board. There’s also micro USB and 5V DC via CPIO header inputs as well as Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities via a separate PoE HAT.
- Improvements in connectivity speed time to market: The new Cypress combined wireless/BLE chip delivers 2.4Ghz/5.0GHz IEEE 802.11.b/g/n/ac wireless with modular compliance certification and Bluetooth 4.2. This allows the board to be designed into end product with significantly reduced wireless compliance testing, improving both cost and time to market.
- Long production lifetime: The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ will remain in production until at least January 2023.
