Raspberry Pi Model B+ brings neat new features

The Raspberry Pi Model B has been present in the market for a long time and it has been selling since the past 2 years. And today we have a new version of this; the company behind this popular single-board computer has launched the Raspberry Pi Model B+. We have already made out from the name that the new version is not going to take a huge jump as far as the features are concerned.

It is going to feature the same BCM2835 application processor and 512MB RAM but of course there are going to be some special additions for instance the four USB 2.0 ports instead of two. And with a better hotplug and overcurrent behavior, the Raspberry Pi Foundation boasts them for good performance. The new version is also not going to stick around with the traditional SD slot as it is being replaced with a more compact push-push microSD card one.

The new versions will also come with new switching regulators instead of linear ones. This is going to help to achieve between 0.5W and 1W lower power consumption and you will be glad to know that the audio output has also been enhanced with the help of a dedicated low-noise power supply. The form factor of the Raspberry Pi Model B+ is neater and you can get it for $35 which is the same price you would pay for its predecessor.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
