Earlier this month, the Raspberry Pi Foundation released the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, a faster, more capable model of their incredibly popular Raspberry Pi 3. The board includes a number of features we know our users will appreciate, and we're happy to say it's now officially supported on the resin.io platform!
We've just released resinOS v2.12.5 for the Raspberry Pi 3 device type, which includes support for the Model B+.
The B+ features a number of improvements over the Model B:
- Dual-band WiFi
- Gigabit Ethernet over USB 2.0
- Support for Bluetooth 4.2
- 40-pin GPIO header
- Faster processor
- Better thermal management
- Support for Power-Over-Ethernet (with separate PoE HAT)
The Model B+ uses the same resinOS image as the Model B, so getting started is as simple as downloading the latest version of resinOS for the Raspberry Pi 3 from the resin.io dashboard and booting up!
As always, you can also download standalone resinOS for the Raspberry Pi 3 B+.
Building a project with the Raspberry Bi 3 B+ and resin.io? We'd love to hear about it - drop us a note in our forums!
