The Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is the latest board in the Raspberry Pi Zero family, with a quad-core processor offering a 40% increase in single-threaded performance and 5x times more multi-threaded performance than the previous single-core Raspberry Pi Zero W!
The successor to the breakthrough Zero W, Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is a drop-in replacement for the original board, with the same form factor, connectors and mounting holes. Perfect for a project upgrade!
The Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W incorporates a quad-core 64-bit Arm Cortex-A53 CPU clocked at 1GHz. At its heart is a Raspberry Pi RP3A0 system-in-package (SiP), integrating a Broadcom BCM2710A1 die with 512MB of LPDDR2 SDRAM. This upgraded package provides the Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W with its generous increase in performance.
Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W continues to offer 2.4GHz 802.11 b/g/n wireless LAN and Bluetooth (now 4.2), along with support for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and modular compliance certification.
The new Raspberry Pi Zero 2 has a MicroSD card slot for the Raspberry Pi Operating System, a CSI-2 camera connector, a USB On-The-Go (OTG) port and an unpopulated footprint for a HAT-compatible 40-pin GPIO header . Video output is via a mini HDMI port; composite video output is available via the board's test points if needed.
The Zero 2 is powered via a micro-USB socket and requires a 5V 2.5A power supply just like previous generations.
Sharing the same form factor as the original Raspberry Pi Zero, Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W
fits inside most of our existing Raspberry Pi Zero cases (look out for the compatibility marker). Our favourite is the FLIRC Zero case !
