Product Details

Raspberry Pi B+ SBC

The Raspberry Pi B+ computer board is an upgraded version of the Pi B and can help you learn about programming and computing or you can create exciting, innovative projects.

Why Pi?
•It's low-cost
•It's really easy to use
•It's Linux-based open source, with access to free software and downloads to help you with your project
•There's a great Pi community out there — check out Design Spark, RS's own design engineer community
•It's flexible to the user. Want to play games? Stream music and/or video? Do your homework? Create a weather station? Create a home security camera? No limits.

So why Pi B+?
•Tidier layout
•40 General Purpose Input/Output Pins (GPIO) compared to 26 on the Pi B
•Improved connectivity (4 USB Ports compared to 1)
•Improved audio quality
•Lower power consumption. Switching power regulators reduce the power consumption to between 0.5 W and 1 W
•Push-push microSD card slot

The B+ board has also been designed with add-on boards in mind. This means that you can be more flexible with your projects and add the functionality that you need. A Hardware Attached on Top (HAT) board enables the B+ to automatically configure GPIO and driver setup for compatibility with any add-on boards.

Note: HAT boards are not backwards compatible
