Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ official with faster CPU and 5GHz WiFi

Speaking of the Internet of Things, the new Pi's Wi-Fi has "modular compliance certification", which means if developers use this Pi hardware in their final product, they won't have as much of a hassle getting the Wi-Fi certified by regulators.

The new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ has been finally released after two years of wait. You'll find Bluetooth 4.2 in the new model and Gigabit Ethernet over a USB 2.0 connection. Compared to its predecessor - the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B - the latest variant comes with a faster CPU and faster wireless throughput.

Hz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU.

Around 19 million Raspberry Pi units have been sold over the past six years, with the Raspberry Pi 3 accounting for around half of those.

It isn't simply overclocked, the updated BCM2837B0 "incorporates power integrity optimisations, and a heat spreader", explains the RasPi blog.

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. Like its previous models, this Raspberry Pi also comes with a set of upgraded features. Processing power will also improve in the plus model.

You can purchase the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ (in) directly from the Raspberry Pi Foundation website.

Improved PXE network and USB mass-storage booting. It must be noted that the Raspberry Pi 3B+ consumes "substantially more power than its predecessor", and thus a high-quality 2.5A power supply is recommended. For makers that is a very positive change as it allowed for the entire device to be certified as a radio module under FCC rules - with a significant reduction in the cost of conformance testing Raspberry Pi-based products as a knock-on effect.
