Raspberry Pi Zero grows built in WiFi and Bluetooth!
To celebrate the 5th year of existence, the Raspberry Pi has announced the Raspberry Pi Zero W priced at 10 $.
This new iteration of the Pi Zero comes with a much needed boost of 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.
The Feature list of the Pi Zero W is
- 1 GHz Single core CPU
- 512MB RAM
- Mini-HDMI port
- Micro USB power
- 40-Pin Header
- Composite Video header
- CSI Camera connector
- 802.11n wireless LAN via Cypress CYW43438 Chip &
- Bluetooth 4.0
These two additions, while seemingly innocuous, this a big deal. With the previous Pi Zero, more often than not, the addition of the Wifi Dongle and Hub to connect it through drove the cost of using a Pi Zero and made it seem ungainly. This new iteration eliminates that.
