Description of product

Description:

The new Raspberry Pi Zero WH offers all the benefits of the Pi Zero W, but with one big difference – a pre-soldered GPIO header.

This upgrade is the addition of a BCM43143 WiFi chip BUILT-IN to your Raspberry Pi Zero – just like the Pi 3.No more pesky WiFi adapters - this Pi is WiFi ready. There’s also Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) on board making the Pi an excellent IoT solution (BLE support is still in the works, software-wise).

This is the slimmest, most pared down Raspberry Pi to date. It's kind of like the little cousin to the Pi 3 - with just a micro SD card slot, a mini HDMI port, two micro USB ports (one for power, one for USB), and 512MB of RAM. It has a single-core 1 GHz processor chip, similar to the Pi A+ and B+.

The best part about all this is that the Pi Zero WH keeps the same shape, connectors, and mounting holes as the Pi Zero W and the v1.3.

Please note - even though there's built-in WiFi, the Pi Zero WH is quite minimal and requires a few accessories to turn it into a computer. At a minimum we recommend:

  • A good quality 5V power supply - Either a 5V 2A with cable or combine a  5V 1A power supply and a Micro B USB cable - this will allow you to power the Zero from a wall adaper. It is not suggested to power the Zero from a computer USB port as the voltage often sags and can cause SD card corruption!
  • 4GB+ SD Card with Operating System - You can grab a ready-to-go Raspbian card that has the correct firmware for the Zero here. Or you can pick up an 8G card with NOOBS 2.0.Or use a blank 4G SD card and burn in Raspbian Wheezy and update the firmware. Make sure you have the latest version!
  • Mini HDMI to HDMI Adapter - Will let you convert the little port on the Zero WH to a standard sized HDMI jack. You can get 1080P HDMI video + audio out of this little computer!
  • USB OTG Cable - Lets you plug in a normal USB device such as USB hub, keyboard, mouse, etc into the Zero.
  • USB Console cable - if you're not going to stick an HDMI monitor on there, then this is essential. You connect the wires to the GPIO pins and log in over a serial console. It's the easiest & fastest way to get on your Pi.

We also strongly recommend some other parts and pieces to make your Pi Zero computing experience easier:

  • Adafruit Pi Zero Enclosure - Adafruit's classic, sturdy plastic enclosure. Keeps your Pi Zero safe and sleek.
  • Pi Zero Protector - Keep your Pi Zero safe while handling with this simple sandwich-style acrylic case.
  • USB Powered Hub - So you can plug in any kind of USB devices without overloading the Zero's power supply. (You can also, ironically, power the Zero from the hub itself by plugging in a micro USB cable into the hub)
  • Mini Wireless Keyboard w/Trackpad - Requires only one USB port, which makes it a great match for the Pi Zero
  • Wireless Keyboard + Mouse set - Also requires only one USB port, but for everyday use.
  • Pi Cobbler or T-Cobbler - When paired with the male or female 2x20 pin header, you can use your Zero with a breadboard to connect sensors, LEDs, motors and more!
  • Ethernet Hub and USB Hub w/ Micro USB OTG Connector - One can never have enough socks, or USB ports. Add some more USB and Ethernet capability to your Raspberry Pi Zero if you're an Ethernet enthusiast.
