Raspberry Pi Foundation announced the smaller and lower-powered model. The new hardware named with Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+.
If you’re running a Pi as just something that takes in power and spits out data on the GPIO pins, Pi 3 Model A+ might be all you need.
Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ is ideal for projects in which you need the speed and processing power of the Pi 3 and also can live without ethernet, multiple USB ports, and extra RAM.
The Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ has undergone extensive compliance testing, and meets the following European standards:
- Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMC) 2014/30/EU
- Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive 2011/65/EU
