Raspberry Pi 400 with compact keyboard, Quad-core Cortex-A72 SoC launch
Raspberry Pi 400, a keyboard with a built-in ARM-based computer, was launched at a price of $ 70 or just over Rs. 5,000. Unlike a Raspberry Pi, this is less of a DIY project and more of a low-cost computer for kids to learn to code as all you need to do is plug in a monitor and you can get started. For people of a certain age, it will surely bring back memories of learning programming on much less advanced machines with a similar form factor, such as BBC Micro.
Inside, the Raspberry Pi 400 has a quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) SoC from Broadcom. All you need to get started is a TV or monitor that can be connected to the Raspberry Pi 400 with the Micro-HDMI ports. It has extensive connectivity options and a compact keyboard without a numeric keypad.
Raspberry Pi 400 price
The Raspberry Pi 400 is priced at $ 70 (roughly Rs. 5,200) without any accessories. The Raspberry Pi 400 kit is priced at $ 100 (roughly Rs. 7,500) and includes a mouse, USB-C power supply, microSD card and Micro-HDMI to HDMI cable, and a beginner’s guide.
As of now, there is no information on when the Raspberry Pi 400 will hit the Indian market.
Raspberry Pi 400 Specifications and Features
The Raspberry Pi 400 is powered by Broadcom BCM2711 Quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC clocked at 1.8GHz and 4GB LPDDR4 RAM clocked at 3200MHz. For connectivity, you get Wi-Fi Dual band IEEE 802.11b / g / n / ac, Bluetooth 5.0, Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port, two Micro-HDMI ports, one microSD card slot, and one GPIO Header. Micro-HDMI ports support up to 4K resolution at 60fps. The Raspberry Pi 400 can decode H.265 video at 4K 60fps and H.264 video at 1080p 60fps, thanks to its OpenGL ES 3.0 graphics.
The highly portable computer can be easily connected to displays via the HDMI port, so you can use it in multiple locations if televisions or monitors are available. It will run on Linux and can be used for basic computing tasks like browsing the web, creating and editing documents, watching videos, but with its specifications and the Linux operating system, it is ideal for education and for learning to program using the Raspberry Pi . Desktop environment of the operating system.
The keyboard comes with 78 or 79 keys depending on the region. There is no numeric keypad and the Raspberry Pi 400 is powered by a 5V DC USB connector. Keyboard layouts for the UK, US, German, French, Italian, and Spanish are available for purchase, with Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Portuguese and Japanese layouts coming soon. according The Verge.
