The good news is that Raspberry Pi Zero is available again, the better news is that this batch is a new revision of the board sporting camera interface! With that said as of the time of writing this article the Zero only option is sold out already, and whatever is still available will be gone within the next day or so!
I was lucky enough to get my hands on one board and it is being dispatched to me as you read this. I’m excited to get my hands on it. Here is the snippet of the Raspberry Pi Zero specification:
- BCM2835 (same as Pi 1) but up-clocked to 1GHz, so 40% faster
- 512MB of RAM
- micro-SD Slot
- micro-USB for data
- micro-USB for power
- unpopulated 40-pin GPIO connector (same pinout as A+/B+/2B)
- Size is 65mmx30mmx5mm
I with variety hats popping out, Zero can sport WIFI, BT and other interfaces, but the biggest advantage of the board is the size, making it perfect for your small, or battery operated creations. I have few plans for this board, with small entry price, it can replace a lot of projects that would be built otherwise from basic components.
