Raspberry Pi 3B+ Launched with Faster CPU and Networking

Raspberry Pi 3B+ Launched with Faster CPU and Networking

The new Raspberry Pi 3 B+ comes with improvements in speed across the board, as the company promises to deliver "more processing and faster communications".

Already popular among the maker crowd, the new Pi version should be easier to integrate into products, as it ships with modular compliance certification for the new dual-band Wi-Fi.

As you'd expect, the new board remains compatible with all the existing Pi 3 Model B accessories and retains the $35 price point.

The Model B+ features an ARM Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 1.4 GHz, an upgrade over the 1.2 GHz Broadcom BCM2837 utilizing the same architecture. In addition to boosting the WiFi, the Raspberry Pi 3B+'s Bluetooth has advanced from 4.1 to 4.2, once again with BLE support.

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is manufactured exclusively in the United Kingdom under licence by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. The wireless circuitry is now housed underneath a metal shield, embossed with a Raspberry Pi logo. These include the new processor's improved power integrity, packaging, and heat spreader, and internal clocking and voltage rule tuning. Streaming and file transfer over ethernet will be a significant improvement over the previous 10/100 Mbps support.

The Foundation claims the Model B+ is capable of "roughly three times the wired and wireless network throughput" of its predecessor.

How Much is the Raspberry Pi 3 B+? It's certainly a nice aesthetic touch, but has also allowed the board to be FCC certified as a radio module, a move that should reduce future conformance testing costs.

To date, over 19 million Raspberry Pi computers have been sold. Writes Upton: "We will shortly launch a PoE HAT which can generate the 5V necessary to power the Raspberry Pi from the 48V PoE supply".

By way of a quick recap, the Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized contraption that serves as a building block for functional computers - users can construct fully working PCs or machines that control their connected home, for example.

In short, the upgraded Pi promises more speed and power.
