Shanghai, China, 29 May 2020 C element14, a global distributor of electronic components and development services, has announced the launch of a new version of the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B computer with 8GB of onboard memory, which is twice the capacity of existing high-end models . The increased memory of the 8GB version can improve the performance of data-intensive applications, making it more attractive to general desktop computer users, hobbyists, makers and professional developers.

The 8GB version of the board offers the perfect balance of processing performance, storage, and cost, making it ideal for applications that need to process large amounts of data in real-time with minimal latency, such as edge gateways, machine vision, and facial recognition. With the recently released Raspberry Pi 12-megapixel high-quality camera module with interchangeable lenses, the 8GB version is further enhanced for imaging applications, making it ideal for professional computer vision applications and photography enthusiasts.

Desktop computer users will also prefer an 8GB version of the board with more memory to support web browsing without lag or lag, UHD video streaming, cloud gaming and image processing.

The hardware performance of Raspberry Pi has been widely recognized in the market to speed up the development and prototyping of complex applications, which can significantly reduce the cost for professionals and start-ups. Developers can now focus less ON hardware and focus more on value-added software.

The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 8GB Edition retains the key performance and connectivity features customers have come to expect, including:

・Efficiency: Compared to previous models, the 28nm BCM2711 SoC has significantly improved energy efficiency.

・Processor: The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B computer features an ARM Cortex-A72 64-bit quad-core processor running at 1.5GHz, running three times faster than the previous generation.

・Video and Sound: Two micro HDMI ports support dual Display output with resolutions up to 4K.

· connect:

o Two SuperSpeed ​​USB 3.0 ports provide faster transfer rates (up to 5 Gbps) for mass storage devices.

o True Gigabit Ethernet connections provide network data rates up to 1 Gbps.

o Dual-band wireless networking at 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz delivers real-world data rates in excess of 100 Mb/s and meets module compliance certification, allowing it to be incorporated into the design of the final product, significantly reducing compliance testing, This reduces costs and shortens time to market.

・Memory: 2GB, 4GB and the new 8GB LPDDR4 memory are optional.

Other key features include:

・Multimedia: H.265 decoding (4KP60), H.264 decoding (1080p60) and H.264 encoding (1080p30); OpenGL ES 3.0 graphics; hardware image sensor pipeline.

・GPIO: Standard 40-pin GPIO header with full backward compatibility, and the addition of multiplexed UART, I2C and SPI peripherals.

・ SD card support: Micro SD card slot, which can be used to load the operating system and data storage.

・Power over Ethernet: PoE functionality via separate HAT accessory.
