The Raspberry Pi Zero 2W microcontroller has been launched as the successor to the Raspberry Pi Zero. Similar to the launch version of the Raspberry Pi 3, the Raspberry Pi Zero 2W also packs a Broadcom BCM2710A1 SoC. The Wireless Zero W board has a 1GHz CPU that the company claims delivers up to five times faster speeds than the former. It also has 512MB LPDDR2 RAM. The board is also compatible with smart home applications and other IoT projects. Raspberry Pi Zero was launched back in 2015.
Raspberry Pi Zero 2W Price, Availability
Raspberry Pi Zero 2W is cost At $15 (about Rs 1,100). The Wireless Zero W board is currently available for purchase from several vendors listed on the official Raspberry Pi Website In Canada, EU, Hong Kong, UK and US.
Raspberry Pi Zero 2W Specifications
The Raspberry Pi Zero 2W uses the same form factor as the original Raspberry Pi Zero. It is equipped with three more cores. The board has a quad-core 64-bit Arm Cortex-A53 CPU, clocked at 1GHz. The Raspberry Pi RP3A0 system-in-package (SiP) board is the major highlight. Raspberry Pi Zero 2W has BCM2710A1 with 512MB LPDDR2 SDRAM.
The Raspberry Pi Zero 2W has a mini-HDMI port and two micro-USB ports for power and USB 2.0. Additionally, it supports 2.4GHz IEEE 802.11 b/g/n wireless LAN, and Bluetooth v4.2 . Comes with connectivity options like
For video, OpenGL ES 1.1, 2.0 graphics have been given in it. H.264, MPEG-4 Decode (1080p30), and H.264 Encode (1080p30). The Raspberry Pi Zero 2W has composite video and reset pins solder points along with the CSI-2 camera connector. The board measures 65x30mm.
Along with the Zero 2W, Raspberry Pi has also debuted a new official USB power supply with a USB Micro-B connector. The new Raspberry Pi Zero 2 PSU can also be used to power a Raspberry Pi 3B or 3B+. It costs $8 (approximately Rs.600) and is available in India with a Type-D port.
