Now that the Raspberry Pi Zero is out there in the wild and ready for all you fruit-loving hackers and makers to put it to inspired and sensational use, more detailed tech specs are also starting to appear. And for the sake of ease, I thought I'd compile everything I've found that really drills down into this latest, smallest Linux-driven beauty.
If there's something else under the Raspberry Pi Zero's hood that you think the electronics community would benefit from knowing about, please feel free to add it in the comments.
Pi Zero Mechanical Drawing
A few people have already stareted working on CAD drawings for Pi Zero cases, ready for 3D printing, so here are more precise technical drawings so you can ensure a safe and snug fit. And if you're creating a case or an accessory, share it here as we're excited to see what makers can add to the Pi Zero's repertoire.
A vector image of the technical drawing is also attached to this document for you to download.
Broadcom BCM2835 Datasheet
Attached to this document is a full datasheet for the brains of the Pi Zero, the Broadcom BCM2835 SoC, in case anyone really wants to get inside its silicon and wring every last function from Pi Zero.
These can be found elsewhere on element14 already, but it seems like they ought to be here too, for the sake of completion.
- CPU: Broadcom BCM2835, which can run at up to 1GHz.
- RAM: 512MB
