  • Fully HAT-compatible
  • 256MB RAM
  • 40-Pin GPIO
  • 1x USB 2.0 Port
  • Size : 65mm x 56mm (shorter than Raspberry Pi A/B/B+)


Building something with robotics, or any project that doesnÄt need Ethernet networking? The lightweight, low-poweràRaspberry Pi A+àmight be a great fit. Smaller and lighter than the Raspberry Pi B+, on the A+ the mounting holes are in the same place as the B+,àmaking swapping a B+ for an A+ really easy.



The A+, as the B+, is compatible with the new Hardware Attached on Top (HAT) standard for Raspberry Pi add-on boards - it has the same improved GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) as the B+. The outline of a Model A+ and a HAT board is identical, making an A+ with aàHAT expansion boardàa sleek stack.The design is based around a Broadcom BCM2835 SoC, which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor and VideoCore IV GPU.

Smaller, thinner (only 12mm, limited by the low-profile USB port) and even less power-hungry than the B+, the A+ is considerably cheaper.


What's been reduced from the B+ to the A+:

  • one USB port, 256MB RAM and no Ethernet port

  • otherwise electrically identical to the B+


Raspberry Pi A+ Hilights:


  • benefits from the B+Äs improved power chain

  • microSD card for booting and long-term storage

  • powered via the USB data portsà

    Raspberry Pi typically usesàLinux kernel based operating systems. The Raspberry Pi does not come with a real-time clock; it cannot keep track of the time of day when not powered on.àAs alternatives, a program running on the Pi can get the time from a network time server or user input at boot time.àA real-time clockà(such as the DS1307)àwith battery backup can be added via the IÃC interface.à
