Today the latest sibling in the slowly but steadily expanding Raspberry Pi family was launched. The brandnew Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ brings the latest features and capabilities to a more compact form factor at a lower price.

Like the B+ the A+ sports a 64-bit quad core Broadcom BCM2837 processor running at 1.4 GHz and features dual-band wireless networking (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz IEEE 802.11ac wireless LAN) plus Bluetooth 4.2 with modular compliance certification. This allows the board to be designed into end products with significantly reduced compliance testing.

The RPi 3A+ is intended for use educators and makers who may not need multiple USB ports, Ethernet connectivity, and 1 GB of RAM. Furthermore it is a cost-effective option for professional use thanks to its compliance certification, the same as for the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+.

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ has the same mechanical footprint as the good old Raspberry Pi 1 Model A+ and will be produced until at least January 2023.

Additional features of the Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ include:
  • 512 MB LPDDR2 SDRAM
  • Full-size HDMI
  • MIPI DSI display port
  • MIPI CSI camera port
  • 4 pole stereo audio output
  • Composite video port
  • H.264, MPEG-4 decode (1080p30); H.264 encode (1080p30); OpenGL ES 1.1, 2.0 graphics
  • Operating temperature, 0–50°C
