In the middle is the Broadcom-branded heatspreader, which covers the quad-core, 64-bit Arm Cortex A53 system-on-a-chip, and in the top left of the board, covered by the Raspberry-branded can is the new dual-band Wi-Fi antenna. Raspberry Pi 2 didn't get this treatment, of course, as it was superseded after only one year; but it feels like it's high time that Raspberry Pi 3 received the "plus" treatment.
The board also incorporates power integrity optimisations, a heat spreader, and dual-band wireless LAN and Bluetooth.
Lastly, the Model B+ comes complete with Power over Ethernet (PoE), which hasn't officially been supported until now.
Gigabit Ethernet makes in appearance on the board, resulting in another leap in network performance from the 100Mbit/s on the older model. The model also has CSI and DSI port to connect to the camera and touchscreen displays.
THE RASPBERRY PI FOUNDATION has unveiled the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, its most powerful miniature PC yet.
Eben Upton, CEO of Raspberry Pi Trading said: "When we launched the Raspberry Pi 3 two years ago, we expected to see an increase in its use as an embedded product, especially in IoT related projects".
