Introducing Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W

Introducing Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W

Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W packs far more power into the same space. The new quad-core 1GHz CPU is up to five times as fast as the original Zero and Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is compatible with all current Zero projects and kits. In this month’s edition of The MagPi:

  • Complete specifications and hardware guide with all major components outlined in full detail.
  • Discover the new system in a package (SiP) process (a first for Raspberry Pi). This enables both the CPU and DRAM to share the same chip.
  • See X-ray images of Zero 2 W. A picture says 1,000 words: especially when it reveals a unique Easter Egg behind the SiP.
  • Eben Upton and Simon Martin talk us through Zero 2 W’s design. We chat with Raspberry Pi’s CEO and Founder and Principal Hardware Engineer.
