Raspberry Pi B+ is at NewEgg


Recommended Posts

This isn't a "Raspberry Pi 2," but rather the final evolution of the original Raspberry Pi. Today, this final revision is available, at $35 – it's still the same price. Meet the Raspberry Pi Model B+. All for $35.99.


The Model B+ uses the same BCM2835 application processor as the Model B. It runs the same software, and still has 512MB RAM; but following key improvements have been made:

  • More GPIO – The GPIO header has grown to 40 pins, while retaining the same pinout for the first 26 pins as the Model B.
  • More USB – We now have four USB 2.0 ports, compared to two on the Model B, and better hotplug and over-current behavior.
  • Micro SD – The old friction-fit SD card socket has been replaced with a much nicer push-push micro SD version.
  • 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.
