Raspberry Pi 3

My Raspberry Pi 3 is finally here. I actually didn't even know if was out until about two weeks ago when I went on to purchase another Raspberry Pi 2. I bought it on Amazon of course - where I buy everything - for $47.


  • A 1.2GHz quad-core ARMv8 CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 802.11n Wireless LAN
  • Bluetooth 4.1
  • Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)

  • Like the (Pi 2) Model B+, it also has:
  • 4 USB ports
  • 40 GPIO pins
  • Full HDMI port
  • Ethernet port
  • Combined 3.5mm audio jack and composite video
  • Camera interface (CSI)
  • Display interface (DSI)
  • Micro SD card slot
  • VideoCore IV 3D graphics core

The Raspberry Pi 3 is pretty similar to the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B+. With the wireless capability of the Raspberry Pi 3, it will work perfectly for my upcoming project where I will be using the Raspberry Pi for Digital Signage.
