The smallest Raspberry Pi just got a whole lot cooler. The Raspberry Pi Zero W carries the same form factor and specifications as the original Pi Zero and provides built-in WiFi and Bluetooth (4.1 + BLE)!

The Raspberry Pi Zero W packs all of the Raspberry Pi goodness that you know and love, into a package that's a mere 66mm x 30.5mm x 5mm. It's tiny! Perfect for projects that would otherwise be off limits to a full-size Raspberry Pi board, the Pi Zero W provides mini-HDMI,  micro-B On-the-Go (OTG) USB port, and an unsoldered 40-pin header for use with hardware, HATs, and other devices.

Check out our Pi Zero W Starter Kit if you're new to Raspberry Pi. Our Essentials Kit has the basics required to make the change from a full-sized Pi to the smaller Zero W.

Tech Specs:

  • BCM 2835 SoC (ARM11 at 1GHz)
  • 512MB of RAM
  • On-board Wi-Fi - 2.4 GHz 802.11 b/g/n (BCM43438)
  • On-board Bluetooth 4.1 + HS Low-energy (BLE) (BCM43438)
  • Storage: micro-SD
  • Display: mini-HDMI
  • Power: USB micro-B
  • USB: 1 x USB micro-B
  • CSI camera connector (requires adaptor cable)
  • Unpopulated 40-pin GPIO connector (requires soldering)
  • Compatible with existing pHAT/HAT add-ons
  • Dimensions: 65mm x 30.5mm x 5mm
  • Weight: 9.3g

    Can't go wrong with a $15 SBC with WiFi and Bluetooth.

    Just be aware that the microHDMI port is set back a few mm so you either need a case that accommodates the setback (doesn't exist yet) or an adapter with a long connector (if you don't want to cut an adapter to fit). (Posted on 1/08/2017)

    An excellent version of the Raspberry Pi family SBCs. It's small form factor makes it ideal for projects where small and unobtrusive is required. The wireless / Bluetooth range and signal quality are exceptional given that there are no external aerials. The USB OTG port is compatible with an Ethernet to USB converter and a powered USB hub via the adapter, cable so there are plenty of opportunities for expansion if needed including Bluetooth for peripherals.

    Overall I am very impress with the Pi Zero W. Now I just need to think up more projects to use it in! (Posted on 26/07/2017)

    The Pi Zero is so small, cheap, and worked just like a standard Raspberry Pi out of the package. The only downside is the need for additional USB and HDMI adapters. However, it's possible to set it up on wireless and completely headless from the get go following this tutorial https://core-electronics.com.au/tutorials/raspberry-pi-zerow-headless-wifi-setup.html

    It is amazing that a computer has twice the memory and 42% more processing speed with less than half the footprint space than the original Model A could be purchased at more than 2/3 off Model A's the original price! Though it does not have composite video output (analogue video), sound and an ethernet it is compensated for with builtin WiFi and Bluetooth. One can connect a 40 pin header and perform all the operations like the latest 40 pin models, Come to think about it, the power in the RPiWZ is comparable to a laptop that could be purchased 10 years ago for $1000 and is 30 times more powerful than a 486 machine (of yesteryear).

    The Pi Zero W is now my IoT platform of choice. You can get the equivalent of a Pi A/B with WiFi and Bluetooth dongles for less than the price of the dongles. And all in a smaller and lower power package. If you don't need the grunt of a Pi2 or Pi3 then a ZeroW is the way to go.

    Great product great price. Make sure you are running the latest version of Raspbian or Noobs or make sure that with the version you are running you have done a Pi firmware update with 'sudo apt-get update' and 'sudo rpi-update' or the WiFi device will not be found. (Posted on 27/05/2017)

    This feels like a huge leap forward for RPis. Most projects and media centres don't need the kind of power the RPi3. WiFi and Bluetooth and a $15 price tag makes a whole range of projects much easier. Lower power consumption helps too when running off a battery pack.

    The device is solid, easy to use as expected and lots of support and documentation available. Just don't forget the HDMI port is mini and you'll need an OTG cable for a keyboard for setup. (Posted on 27/05/2017)

Installation of OSMC onto a 4GB micro SD was also successful and worked well. Minibian on a 1GB micro SD appeared to operate quickly.

    How small is this Raspberry Pi. Great that it has Bluetooth and wifi built in.

Price is amazing, I am going to be able to use this in all sorts of places. (Posted on 25/05/2017)

    After easily installing Raspbian on a microSD this was pretty much ready to go - no need to worry about Wi-Fi or Bluetooth drivers (I had such issues with the first Pi Zero).
