The new Raspberry Pi Model A+ is now available in South Africa. The unit is now easier to use, smaller and uses less power than its predecessors.
The Raspberry Pi Model A+ has the 40-pin GPIO connector introduced on the Model B+, with the same pin-out and mounting holes for standard Hardware Attached on Top (HAT) accessories allowing users to add extra functions quickly and easily. In addition, the Model A+ utilises the Model B+ power architecture to achieve lower power consumption than the earlier Model A. With smaller board dimensions of 65mm x 56mm, compared to 86mm x 56mm for the Model B+, the new Model A+ is more easily embeddable and better suited to mobile or battery-powered applications.
While bringing improvements derived from the Model B+, the Model A+ provides an economical feature set with 256 MB RAM and a single USB connector offering adequate resources for numerous industrial and consumer products.
The Raspberry Pi Model A+ is available to order now for immediate shipping from RS Components. Visit the website here for more information.
