As well as introducing the new addition to the Raspberry Pi range of mini PCs with the launch of the new Raspberry Pi Zero W. The official Raspberry Pi Foundation has also created an official Raspberry Pi Zero W case to support the new hardware which is now available in white and red.
The new Raspberry Pi Zero W mini PC is now available to purchase priced at $10 and provides additional features in the form of wireless connectivity and Bluetooth support. Check out the video below to learn more about the hardware and case which is now available to purchase from a number of retailers worldwide.
Measuring just 65mm x 30mm, the new Raspberry Pi Zero W is perfectly designed for embedded applications, wearables, prototyping and any other Pi based tinkering
To accompany Raspberry Pi Zero W, we’ve been working with our friends at Kinneir Dufort and T-Zero to create an official injection-moulded case. This shares the same design language as the official case for the Raspberry Pi 3, and features three interchangeable lids:
– A blank one
– One with an aperture to let you access the GPIOs
– One with an aperture and mounting point for a camera
The case set also includes a short camera adapter flexi, and a set of rubber feet to make sure your cased Zero or Zero W doesn’t slide off the desk.
Full specifications of the new Raspberry Pi Zero W (Wireless) mini PC include :
• BCM2835 (same as Pi 1) but up-clocked to 1GHz, so 40% faster
• 512MB RAM
• Mini HDMI
• USB On-The-Go port

• HAT-compatible 40-pin header
• Composite video and reset headers
