What is a Raspberry Pi?

Specifications

Compared to the Model B it has:

  • More GPIO pins. The GPIO header has grown to 40 pins, while retaining the same pinout for the first 26 pins as the Model A and B.
  • More USB ports. It comes with 4 USB 2.0 ports, compared to 2 on the Model B, and better hotplug and overcurrent behaviour.
  • Micro SD. The old friction-fit SD card socket has been replaced with a much nicer push-push micro SD version.
  • 100 Base Ethernet (same as the original Model B)
  • Lower power consumption. By replacing linear regulators with switching ones we’ve reduced power consumption by between 0.5W and 1W.
  • Better audio. The audio circuit incorporates a dedicated low-noise power supply.
  • Neater form factor. We’ve aligned the USB connectors with the board edge, moved composite video onto the 3.5mm jack, and added four squarely-placed mounting holes.

Software & OS

Beginners should start with NOOBS (New Out Of Box Software) which gives the user a choice of operating system from the standard distributions.

SD Cards with NOOBS Pre-installed should be available from any of our distributors and resellers globally
