    Highlights

    No more buffer face – boots up Raspbian in less than half the time as the Model B+

    More power for your favourite projects – create Space Progammes, Time Lapse Videos, GPS tracking, HD audio and lots more with a full ecosystem of supporting accessories.

    Build your own workstation – create and manage your documents and spreadsheets with ease using LibreOffice™

    The 40 pin GPIO is unpopulated providing the flexibility to use only the connections your solution requires.

    Power rating of just 160mA even when connected to a 1080P display, making this the most efficient Raspberry Pi to date.

    1 Micro USB "on the go" data port for linking to accessories and peripherals like an external USB hub.

    Improved power management which improves USB support and allows for high-drain devices such as external USB hard drives.

    Larger bank of accessible GPIO ports compared to Model B board allows for direct hardware device control.

    Smaller, compact design

    Works well as an introductory educational tool

    Suitable for a smaller scale electronics project that requires standard IO ports

    Minimalistic design assists in pick and choosing devices, helps reduce overall power consumption

    HAT Compatible

    Large bank of accessible GPIO to communicate with devices and the Raspberry Pi

    Input and output to/from visual capture devices and displays easily broken out into accessible ports.

    IO Board allows for prototyping of a circuit which the module can then integrate into.

    Onboard flash allows for fast execution of code without relying on SDCards
