Raspberry Pi Model B+ 512MB (Retired)


The Raspberry Pi is an ever popular system that is designed to replace PCs in many applications. This device makes for a great all in one mini computer replacement, and is able to perform many of the tasks you would normally accomplish on your desktop while remaining small and inexpensive.

The Raspberry Pi Model B+ comes with on-board video and HDMI, 4 USB ports, an audio port and Ethernet port. It's a full PC in a tiny economical package.

Upgrades from Raspberry Pi Model B:

The GPIO header now has 40 pins, but keeps same pinout for the first 26 pins as the Model B.
4 USB 2.0 ports, versus just 2 on the Model B, plus better hotplug and overcurrent behaviour.
Micro SD card socket upgraded to push-push type over the friction-fit SD card socket in the Model B.
Reduced power consumption. By replacing linear regulators with switching ones, the power consumption has been reduced by 0.5W to 1W.
Dedicated low-noise power supply incorporated into the audio circuit means better audio.
Improved form factor. The USB connectors have been aligned with the board edge, the composite video has been moved onto the 3.5mm jack, and four squarely-placed mounting holes have been added.
