The Raspberry Pi foundation just announced the new A+ model. It is cheaper, smaller and uses less power, than any other Pi out there.
With a smaller form factor, fewer ports and an improved audio output. The A+ model looks like a clear update. It also supports the new, wider, extension connector introduced with the B+ model, making it compatible with HAT add-ons. The retail price is set to USD 20 – a whole 20% cheaper than its predecessor.
I’m looking forward for trying my own A+. In the mean time, I’m curious about the actual power requirement figures, the quality of the audio and just how small it actually is.
