The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is one the numerous and unique PC’s from the Raspberry Pi Foundation. 

Raspberry Pi Foundation Brief History

Raspberry Pi Foundation

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a charity founded in 2009 to promote the study of basic computer science in schools, and is responsible for developing a single-board computer called the Raspberry Pi, the UK’s best-selling PC of all time.

The foundation is affiliated to the University of Cambridge. In 2016, The Foundation moved its headquarters to Station Road, Cambridge, Cambridge.

The Foundation seeks “to promote the study of computer science and related topics, especially at school level, and to put the fun back into learning computing”.

The Journey Started in 2006, when the decline in numbers and skills of students applying for Computer Science became a concern for a team that included Eben Upton, Rob Mullins, Jack Lang and Alan Mycroft at the University of Cambridge’s Computer Laboratory in 2006.

The need for a tiny and affordable computer came to their minds. Several versions of the early Raspberry Pi prototypes were designed but were very limited by the high cost and low power processors for mobile devices at that time.

In early 2013 there were some major changes in the company.

The organization split into two parts: Raspberry Pi Foundation which is responsible for the charitable and educational activities; and Raspberry Pi (Trading) Ltd responsible for the engineering and trading activities.

Raspberry Pi (Trading) Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of Raspberry Pi Foundation, with the money earned from sales of Raspberry Pi products being used to fund the charitable work of the Foundation.

Fast forward to today. The Foundation announced today (14/3/2018) the will the selling the all new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+.

The Foundation added, “Alongside a 200MHz increase in peak CPU clock frequency, we have roughly three times the wired and wireless network throughput, and the ability to sustain high performance for much longer periods,”

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B was released about 2 years ago, the device sold very well for the company because it was their first device with 64-bit processing and integrated wireless connectivity.

Upgrade

The company decided to add a +(plus) to the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, and as per usual trend in the industry , that comes with an upgrade. According to Raspberry Pi, it’s sold more than 9 million Raspberry Pi 3 units and a total of 19 million Raspberry Pis in total.The organization’s decision to release a “plus” model now is in keeping with its standard release schedule.

The plus model should offer a dramatic improvement, according to the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Bandwidth on the 3B model was about 35.7Mbps, according to the organization. But if you get your hands on a 3B+, you’ll find bandwidth of up to 46.7Mbps over 2.4GHz and 102Mbps over 5GHz. Processing power will also improve in the plus model.

The company will continue to offer earlier models to interested customers. You can get a Raspberry Pi 1B+, Raspberry Pi 2B, and Raspberry Pi 3B for $25, $35, and $35, respectively.

The new model is also on sell at $35. You can order  Here.
