RS announces first stocks of new Raspberry Pi Model A+

RS Components (RS) is now stocking the new Raspberry Pi Model A+, which combines enhanced value and ease of use with smaller size and lower power consumption for applications such as industrial controls, remote monitors, and multimedia devices.

The Raspberry Pi Model A+ has the 40-pin GPIO connector introduced on the Model B+, with the same pin-out and mounting holes for standard Hardware Attached on Top (HAT) accessories allowing users to add extra functions quickly and easily. In addition, the Model A+ utilises the Model B+ power architecture to achieve lower power consumption than the earlier Model A. With smaller board dimensions of 65mm x 56mm, compared to 86mm x 56mm for the Model B+, the new Model A+ is more easily embeddable and better suited to mobile or battery-powered applications.

While bringing improvements derived from the Model B+, the Model A+ provides an economical feature set with 256MB RAM and a single USB connector offering adequate resources for numerous industrial and consumer projects.

The Raspberry Pi Model A+ is available to order now for immediate shipping from RS Components.
