Raspberry Pi 3 Model B SBC
The Raspberry Pi is a single computer board — developed to encourage and aid the teaching of programming and computing.
Built on the latest Broadcom 2837 ARMv8 64bit processor the new generation Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is faster and more powerful than its predecessors.
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.

Pi 3 compared to Pi 2
- 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.
- On-board connectivity. The Pi 3 features 802.11 b/g/n 2.4 GHz Wireless LAN and Bluetooth Classic & Low Energy (BLE). You can get connected much quicker without the need for any external device.
- 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 3 Power Supply available seperately.
- 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.
