Micro Raspberry Pi 3 Out Soon; A Mini-Computer Within a Computer
Recently, we talked about the Raspberry Pi 3 and the competition that it is facing from other products of its category. Now it seems that there is a Micro Raspberry Pi 3 coming out that is smaller than the original one. What does this mean? Let’s find out.
The Micro Raspberry Pi 3 is a single board computer that you can plug into specific onboard memory slots. In short, it is a computer inside a computer. How’s that? The Micro Raspberry Pi 3 will have the same specifications of the original one but this one will just be smaller as the name clearly implies.
The Micro Raspberry Pi 3 Compute Module will have a 64-bit ARM processor. It will not, however, have Wi-Fi. It may be in the stores in time for Christmas this year and will cost around $24. It will be compatible with Linux and Windows 10 IoT Core.
The Micro Raspberry Pi 3 is aimed at the factory market and could hit the industry hard. Will this be adopted by people over the original? We will find out this year.
The upcoming Micro Raspberry Pi 3 Compute Module will be compatible with SODIMM slots. They are cheaper than PCI and SDRAM slots and can carry high-speed signals without compromising on reliability.
This seems to me like a very silly offering by the company. But then again, that is my opinion and other people can have a different opinion. What do you think about this new product?
