The Raspberry Pi 3 A+
Warning: Last items in stock!
Why did the Raspberry-Pi foundation did created the Raspberry-Pi 3 A+? Will this been appropriate to have a Pi without Ethernet connexion and with only one USB port ?
Well, with a bit a thinking this is a good idea. Let me explaining you why!
Nowaday, many nano computer just use the WiFi connexion to acces the network. It is quite usual to have a Raspberry-Pi where the Ethernet port did never seen the Ethernet cable.
On the other hand, the Raspberry Pi have WiFi interface en bluetooth integrated to the board, so the USB port can still available.
Keyboard and mouse can be connected via bluetooth, once again, the USB port is still free for use.
So, the Pi 3 A+ is still meaningful... and would be able to fulfill usual Pi 3 B+ functions.
Well, almost everything from Pi 3 B+ is still available!
We will start with the Broadcom BCM2837, the same as the Pi 3B+ clocked @ 1.4 Ghz.
Next, we still have the standard HDMI port to connect your Pi on an HDMI monitor / TV.
The CSI port for the CameraPi and the DSI port for the official Raspberry Pi TFT touch screen.
The 4 points stereo port available for stereo audio output and video composite signal.
Finally, the 40 pins GPIO is available like every Pi since the Pi B+. So this Pi 3 A+ is still a great for prototyping electronic project or to add extension board.
On the Power Supply side, the Pi 3 A+ is still powered throught a microUSB port (5V @ 2.5A).
