Raspberry Pi Model B+

Raspberry Pi Australia

In stock ready to ship.

The Raspberry Pi Model B+ is an ARM-based PC the size of a credit card. Just add a keyboard, mouse, display, power supply,  micro SD card with installed Linux Distribution and you'll have a fully fledged computer that can run applications from word processors and spreadsheets to games.  There are also 2 enclosures available for the Model B  - Black and Clear

As the Raspberry Pi Model B+ support HD video, you can even create a media centre with it. The Raspberry Pi Model B+ is the first Raspberry Pi to be open-source from the get-go, expect it to be the defacto embedded linux board in all the forums.

What's the same:

  • Same Broadcom BCM2835 Chipset
  • Same 512MB RAM
  • Same full size HDMI port
  • Same 10/100 Ethernet port
  • Same CSI camera port and DSI display ports
  • Same micro USB power supply connection

What has changed:

  • Now comes with 4 USB ports so you can now connect more devices than ever to your Raspberry Pi.
  • There is a 40pin extended GPIO so you can build even bigger and better projects than ever before. The first 26 pins are identical to the Model B to provide 100% backward compatibility for your projects.
  • Micro SD slot instead of the full size SD slot for storing information and loading your operating systems.
  • Advanced power management:
    • You can now provide up to 1.2 AMP to the 4 USB ports – enabling you to connect more power hungry USB devices without needing an external USB hub. (This feature requires a 2Amp micro USB Power Supply)
    • The B+ board now uses less power (600mA) than the Model B Board (750mA) when running
  • Combined 4-pole jack for connecting your stereo audio out and composite video out
  • The four mounting holes are now in a 58mm wide x 49mm high rectangular grid
  • 3.5mm jack and the USB ports are flush with the board

Please note: The Raspberry Pi Model B+ is laid-out differently to the previous Raspberry Pis and existing enclosures and crusts (daughter boards) may not fit. Checkout the data sheet downloads below.
