The Raspberry Pi Model A+ is an ultra-low-cost, tiny footprint Linux computer. Developed by the  Raspberry Pi Foundation in the UK, the Raspberry Pi aims to put the fun back into learning  computing by promoting the study of computer science and programming at a school level. 

The Model A+ Raspberry Pi is a stripped-down version of the Model B+ Raspberry Pi, with no  Ethernet, one USB port and 512MB RAM. The trade-off for removing certain features results in  the Model A+ Raspberry Pi being $10 cheaper than the Model B+ in addition to using only one  third the power. This low power consumption makes it ideal for projects running from a  battery or solar power - robots, sensor platforms in remote locations and Wi-Fi repeaters for example.
 
This purchase is for 1 x 512MB Raspberry Pi Model A+ Board
 
Technical Specification:
  • 700MHz Broadcom BCM2835 CPU with 512MB RAM
  • 40pin extended GPIO
  • 1 x USB 2 ports
  • 4 pole Stereo output and Composite video port
  • Full size HDMI
  • CSI camera port for connecting the Raspberry Pi camera
  • DSI display port for connecting the Raspberry Pi touch screen display
  • Micro SD port for loading your operating system and storing data
  • Micro USB power source

Key Improvements from Model A to Model A+:

  • More energy efficient / uses less power
  • Supports a smarter board layout including an expanded GPIO header (40 pin instead of 26)
  • Micro SD Card port protecting your SD card from damage
  • Improved power management – now possible to drive ‘power hungry’ USB devices directly from your Raspberry Pi.

Model A+ Features:

  • Smaller board footprint and is fully HAT compatible
  • 40pin extended GPIO to enhance your “real world” projects
  • Connect a Raspberry Pi camera and touch screen display (each sole separately)
  • Stream and watch Hi-definition video output at 1080P

Model A+ to Model A Comparison:

  • Same Broadcom BCM2835 Chipset
  • Same 512MB RAM
  • Same full size HDMI port
  • Same CSI camera port and DSI display ports
  • Same micro USB power supply connection
  • There is a 40pin extended GPIO so you can build even bigger and better projects than ever before. The first 26 pins are identical to the Model A to provide 100% backward compatibility for your projects.
  • Micro SD slot instead of the full size SD slot for storing information and loading your operating systems.
  • The small board footprint is Raspberry PI HAT compatible.
  • Advanced power management:
    • You can now provide up to 1.2 AMP to the USB port – enabling you to connect more power hungry USB devices directly to the Raspberry PI. (This feature requires a 2Amp micro USB Power Supply)
    • The A+ board now uses less power (600mA) than the Model A Board (750mA) when running
  • Combined 4-pole jack for connecting your stereo audio out and composite video out
It is clear that this tiny computer will have many other applications outside of being just  a learning tool. Demos already show the Raspberry Pi running games, word processing,  managing spread-sheets and playing high-definition video.  With access to the internet via  Wi-Fi (with a USB dongle), and a high definition output, the Raspberry Pi is an incredibly  versatile piece of computing kit. Most importantly the Raspberry Pi gives every child in the  country a chance to own a personal computer which they can develop, learn from, and play  with, at an incredibly low cost and in an unbelievably small package.
 
The Raspberry Pi comes without any other peripherals.
