Introducing Raspberry Pi 3 Model A +, Smaller & Cheaper Than Ever

Those responsible for the Raspberry Pi Foundation have announced the release of a new version of its popular mini PC. This is the Raspberry Pi 3 Model A +, a version cut in size, specifications and price of the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B + that was launched in March 2018.

The new version inherits much of the improvements that characterized the previous release, and those responsible for this development recognize that it is a way to close the circle with style, because the next Raspberry Pi, when it arrives, will be a much more noticeable change.

New Prodigy of Technology

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model A + reduces the size and price of its older sister, and there is only compromise in three sections: we have half of RAM, we do not have an RJ45 connector for network connections (but with the WiFi chip), of course) and there are also sacrifices with USB ports, whose number is reduced from 4 to only 1 connector with USB 2.0 interface.

SPECIFICATIONS RASPBERRY PI 3 MODEL B + (2018) RASPBERRY PI 3 MODEL A + (2018)
PROCESSOR Broadcom BCM2837B0, Cortex-A53 (ARMv8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.4GHz Broadcom BCM2837B0, Cortex-A53 (ARMv8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.4GHz
RAM 1 GB RAM 512 MB RAM
CONNECTIVITY WiFI 802.11.b / g / n / ac dual band 2.4GHz and 5GHz
Bluetooth 4.2
Ethernet port up to 300 Mbps

Bluetooth 4.2
PORTS Full HDMI, 4 USB 2.0, Micro SD, CSI camera, DSI display Full HDMI, 1 USB 2.0, Micro SD, CSI camera, DSI display

Otherwise, we find a design that is basically identical to that of its predecessors to complete a very striking development for that balance between performance and price. In fact, it is an intermediate step between the superior model and the Raspberry Pi Zero W that we were hallucinated since its launch.

Now it remains to be seen what will be the next step of a plaque that as its creators say “will be more than an evolution” in future iterations. In fact, they spoke of new CPU ” with a new lithography and new memory technology “.

Everything points to that change will provide the Raspberry Pi with a remarkable efficiency and power compared to the current models, but that will have to wait, although perhaps that product is closer than it seems.
