The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the last single-board computer from the Raspberry Pi Foundation. It features a 1.2Ghz 64-bit quad-core ARM processor and added 802.11n Wireless LAN, Bluetooth 4.1 and Bluetooth Low Energy. Like the previous version (the Pi 2) it has 1 GB of RAM, 4 USB ports, and full HDMI support. The Raspberry Pi 3 also has the same form factor as the Pi 2 (and Pi 1 Model B+).
The Raspberry Pi 3 is a credit-card sized computer capable of doing just about anything a desktop PC does. From web surfing and word processing, to playing Minecraft or acting as a media player, the Raspberry Pi’s capabilities are extensive. With plenty of graphics processing power, the Raspberry Pi 3 is capable of streaming BluRay-quality video. If you’re looking to incorporate the Pi into your next embedded design, the 0.1” spaced 40-pin GPIO header gives you access to 27 GPIO, UART, I2C, SPI as well as both 3.3V and 5V power sources.
