How do I power my Raspberry Pi?Sep 18, 2015
At ModMyPi we offer a range of different micro-development boards, which all require slightly different power sources! Some are very stringent in their required..
The Raspberry Pi Model B+ has landed at ModMyPi! The ultra-low-cost, deck-of-cards sized Linux computer has had a makeover, and it's a good one at that! The Raspberry Pi Model B+ incorporates a number of enhancements and new features including improved power consumption, increased connectivity with 4 USB ports, and a greater 40 Pin GPIO!
Back-Compatibility Note - The GPIO Pin area is now 40 pins long however the first 26 pins are identical to the Model B to provide 100% backward compatibility for your projects. The B+ also includes the same CSI port for the camera module, and is compatible with the same operating systems (Raspian, OpenELEC, OSMC etc.). The new Model B+ also requires a 5V 2A or greater power supply for best results (which we stock separately!)
Case Fitment Note - The Raspberry Pi Model B+ Features a completely revised layout. Model B cases WILL NOT FIT. Please ensure that any case purchase is for a Model B+ Case.
Please Note. Purchase is for 1 x 512MB Raspberry Pi MODEL B+ Board, which comes without any other peripherals.
The Raspberry Pi Model B+ Features:
Model B+ Raspberry Pi with Mounting Points and 512MB RAM
Broadcom BCM2835 ARM11 700Mhz
Integrated Videocore 4 Graphics GPU capable of playing Full 1080p HD Video
4 x USB Ports (Max Output 1.2A)
Board Power Draw: 600mA
HDMI Video Output
4 Pole Stereo & Composite Video Output
10/100Mb Ethernet Port for Internet Access
5V 2A Micro USB Power Input Jack
MicroSD Flash Memory Card Slot
40-pin 2.54mm Header Expansion Slot (Which allow for peripherals and expansion boards)
Dimensions 85 x 56 x 17mm
Improvements over the Model B
40 Pin GPIO
4 x USB Ports with improved power regulation
You can now provide up to 1.2 AMP to the 4 USB ports
