The Raspberry Pi Foundation extends the Pi Zero family and comes with added wireless LAN and Bluetooth connectivity.
The inevitable has happened - We are glad to say that Raspberry Pi foundation officially announces Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W. The Raspberry Pi came up with the major changes in the Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W model that gained a lot of attention from the Pi-lovers.
Here is the picture of the officially launched Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W.
In November 2015, Raspberry Pi Foundation launched Raspberry Pi Zero, the diminutive $5 entry-level Raspberry Pi. As always you get a small sized, compact and powerful microcontroller in the latest version of Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W. The latest board incorporates great new headline features like quad-core 64-bit Arm Cortex-A53 CPU, clocked at 1GHz, an incredible improvement on previous boards. At its heart is a Raspberry Pi RP3A0 system-in-package (SiP), integrating a Broadcom BCM2710A1 die with 512MB of LPDDR2 SDRAM.
The upgraded processor provides Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W with 40% more single-threaded performance, and five times more multi-threaded performance, than the original single-core Raspberry Pi Zero.
Did you know that you can perform IoT operations easily with the Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W? Raspberry Pi developers developed the board of Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W to make the connectivity easy and efficient for the users.
Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W offers 2.4GHz 802.11 b/g/n wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.2, along with support for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and modular compliance certification. The board has a microSD card slot, a CSI-2 camera connector, a USB On-The-Go (OTG) port, and an unpopulated footprint for a HAT-compatible 40-pin GPIO header. It is powered via a micro USB socket. Video output is via a mini HDMI port; composite video output can easily be made available via test points if needed. Sharing the same form factor as the original Raspberry Pi Zero, Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W fits inside most existing Raspberry Pi Zero cases.
