Raspberry Pi 400 with compact keyboard, quad-core Cortex-A72 SoC launched

The Raspberry Pi 400, a keyboard with an integrated ARM computer, launched at a price of $ 70 or a little more than Rs. 5,000. Unlike a Raspberry Pi, this is less of a DIY project and more of an inexpensive computer that kids can learn to code on. All you have to do is plug in a monitor and get started. For people of a certain age, it will surely bring back memories of programming on far less advanced machines with a similar form factor as the BBC Micro.

Inside, the Raspberry Pi 400 has a quad-core SoC Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) from Broadcom. All you need is a television or a monitor that can be connected to the Raspberry Pi 400 via the micro HDMI connections. You have numerous connectivity options and a compact keyboard without a number pad.

Raspberry Pi 400 price

The price for the Raspberry Pi 400 is $ 70 (about 5,200 rupees) excluding accessories. The Raspberry Pi 400 Kit costs $ 100 (about $ 7,500) and includes a mouse, USB-C power adapter, microSD card, and micro-HDMI-to-HDMI cable, as well as instructions for beginners .

There is currently no information on when the Raspberry Pi 400 will hit the Indian market.

Raspberry Pi 400 specifications, functions

The Raspberry Pi 400 is operated with the 64-bit SoC Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) from Broadcom BCM2711 with four cores and 1.8 GHz and 4 GB LPDDR4-RAM with 3,200 MHz. For connectivity, you get dual-band IEEE 802.11b / g / n / ac WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, two micro HDMI ports, a microSD card slot and a GPIO header. The micro HDMI connections support a resolution of up to 4K at 60 fps. Thanks to its OpenGL ES 3.0 graphics, the Raspberry Pi 400 can decode H.265 videos with 4K 60fps and H.264 videos with 1080p 60fps.

The highly portable computer can easily be connected to displays via the HDMI port, so you can use it in multiple locations when TVs or monitors are available. It runs on Linux and can be used for basic computer tasks such as surfing the Internet, creating and editing documents, watching videos. However, with its specifications and Linux operating system, it is best suited for training and learning to program with the Raspberry Pi operating system desktop environment.

The keyboard has 78 or 79 keys depending on the region. There is no number pad and the Raspberry Pi 400 is supplied with power via a 5 V DC USB connection. Keyboard layouts are available for purchase for the UK, US, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain. Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Portuguese and Japanese layouts will be offered shortly. according to The edge.
