Farnell ships Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W 

Farnell is now shipping the new-to-market Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W single board computer, boosting its range of Raspberry Pi products available from stock. 

Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is a flexible and new member of the Raspberry Pi family, built around a Raspberry Pi-designed RP3A0 system-in-package which integrates the BCM2710A1 die used in the launch variant of Raspberry Pi 3 with 512MB of LPDDR2 SDRAM. 

Key features include a 1GHz quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 CPU, VideoCore IV GPU, micro-USB power and HAT-compatible 40-pin header. Functionality is aided by video and reset pins via solder test points, and a CSI camera connector. Connectivity is via an 802.11b/g/n wireless LAN, Bluetooth 4.2 / Bluetooth low energy (BLE), MicroSD card slot, mini HDMI and USB 2.0 OTG ports.

Customers who are comfortable working with Raspberry Pi Zero devices will appreciate the extra functionality of Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W. This compact computer is suitable for building embedded IoT projects and wireless networking applications and can also be used as a general-purpose computer. 

Its predecessor, the Raspberry Pi Zero W, has been used in a range of applications from miniature arcade cabinets to electric skateboards.

Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is accompanied by a range of accessories including a 5VDC power supply.

Romain Soreau, head of single board computing at Farnell, said: “We are pleased to expand our range of Raspberry Pi products to ensure novice electronics enthusiasts through to professional design engineers can make use of new-to-market development boards to kickstart their projects. The small form factor, enhanced features and low price make Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W the perfect computer for running low-power jobs, particularly for applications where space is an issue.”

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK-based charity. Its goal is to provide an easy-to-use maker experience for beginners, which is flexible enough for advanced users. Raspberry Pi provides single-board computers and accessories for educational and industrial applications, and personal computing products.
