This Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ is a 1.4GHz 64-bit quad-core processor, dual-band wireless LAN, Bluetooth 4.2/BLE in the same mechanical format as the Raspberry Pi 1 Model A+. Its a compact single-board computer developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. It is a smaller and more cost-effective version of the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+.
The Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ is designed for projects that require a smaller form factor and lower power consumption. It is suitable for applications such as IoT (Internet of Things) devices, embedded systems, portable projects, and more.
Processor: The Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ is powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor. This processor provides good performance for various tasks.
RAM: It is equipped with 512 MB of LPDDR2 SDRAM, which is slightly lower than the RAM of the Raspberry Pi 3B+.
Connectivity: The Model A+ offers built-in Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.2, allowing for wireless connectivity options for internet access and connecting peripherals.
Storage: Similar to other Raspberry Pi models, it features a microSD card slot for storage. You can insert a microSD card to boot the operating system and store your files.
USB Ports: The Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ has one USB 2.0 port, allowing you to connect peripherals such as a keyboard, mouse, or external storage device. However, it has fewer USB ports compared to the Model B+.
GPIO Pins: It includes a 40-pin General Purpose Input/output (GPIO) header, allowing for the connection of various external components and expansion boards, similar to other Raspberry Pi models.
Video Output: The board has a full-size HDMI port, enabling you to connect it to a monitor or TV for display.
Power: The board requires a 5V micro USB power supply to operate, similar to other Raspberry Pi models.
