Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+
Reduced consumption, more efficient... the Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ is as compact as the Pi 1 A+ while offering a much more powerful and faster processor.
Raspberry Pi 3 A+: compact, economical and versatile
Measuring just 65 x 56 mm (same form factor as the 1 A+), this Raspberry Pi board is a serious small format contender. It is particularly appreciated for its minimal energy consumption and still affordable price.
Above all, it offers new possibilities for fans of embedded applications who want to concentrate both the weight and the consumption of their project. Like the Raspberry Pi 3 B+, it features WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity and a quad-core processor running at 1.4 GHz.
Raspberry Pi 3: a new and improved A+
The Raspberry Pi 1 A+ was hailed for its particularly compact size, ideal for creators of drones and mobile robots, but some regretted the lack of internet connectivity and its single USB 2.0 port.
Rest assured, this time the Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ offers a wireless LAN and is equipped with Bluetooth 4.2 BLE. It also has better audio, stereo and video interfaces, far superior to those of its older sister.
