Latest Raspberry Pi 3 computer board now available from RS Components

The launch, which has been timed to coincide with Pi Day, comes two years after the organization introduced its previous top-of-the-line Raspberry Pi 3 model and one year after the entry-level Raspberry Pi Zero W.

A new version of the Raspberry Pi 3 has been unleashed, with a faster processor and notable improvements on the connectivity front. These have found their way into in schools, homes, offices and factories all over the globe. But the first Pi to rock integrated wireless connectivity is now a little over 2 years old. Out of which, the Raspberry Pi 3 accounts for over 9 million units.

In news guaranteed to bring joy to hobbyists and nerds the world over, the $35 Model 3 B+ now features a 1.4Ghz quad core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU, up from 1.2GHz in the previous incarnation. The Foundation says that the addition of a heat spreader and power integrity tweaks allows for a 200 MHz increase in clock frequency, while also catering for improved accuracy in temperature monitoring and control.

Gigabit Ethernet. The Model B+ supports gigabit (1000 Mbps) Ethernet, though the required USB 2.0 connection limits the speed to about 315 Mbps max. All of the wireless circuitry is housed under a metal shield that's been embossed with the Raspberry Pi Foundation's logo.

Apple Music Reaches 38 Million Subscribers - Up 2 Million in Five Weeks
Apple made its first big push to integrate magazines and newspapers into its devices with an application called Newsstand in 2011. Texture's magazine catalogue includes Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, Vanity Fair, Vogue, and Bloomberg Businessweek.

Finally: The upgraded Pi also now supports power-over-ethernet (PoE), meaning the device will soon be able to be powered up through its ethernet port, though you'll need to wait for a separate Poe HAT to launch "shortly".

For those interested in using the Raspberry Pi in products that will go up for sale, the entire board is now certified as a radio module by the FCC.

In short, the upgraded Pi promises more speed and power. The operating system and storage needs are taken care of by a microSD card pushed into the integrated slot.

RS Components (RS), the global distributor for engineers, today announced availability of the latest Raspberry Pi computer board: Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+.
