Raspberry Pi Zero (1GHz CPU, 512MB , HDMI,USB)
What you can do with the Zero
What can’t you do? Am I right?! The small size of the Zero makes it perfect for projects with minimal wiggle-room. In such projects, some people have no need for GPIO pins — they simply solder directly to the board. However, there are many instances where you do want a header on your Zero , for example in order to easily take advantage of the GPIO expander tool for Debian Stretch on a PC or Mac.
The credit-card-sized computer has become even smaller! The Raspberry Pi Zero is still the Pi you know and love, but at a largely reduced size of only 65mm long by 30mm wide and at a very economical price. Raspberry Pi Zero is ideal for making embedded Internet of Things (IoT) projects. The Pi Zero has been designed to be as flexible and compact as possible with mini connectors and an unpopulated 40-pin GPIO, allowing you to use only what your project requires.
At the heart of the Raspberry Pi Zero is a 1GHz BCM2835 single-core processor, the same as the B+ and A+, with 512MB RAM. Quite frankly, this Pi is about four times faster that the original Raspberry Pi and is only a fraction of the cost of the current RPi3.
The setup for the Raspberry Pi Zero is a little more complicated than on other Pis. Because of the small size, many of the connectors on the Pi Zero are not standard. For starters you will want a Mini HDMI to HDMI cable Set or adapter to connect to your monitor. You will also need a USB OTG cable to connect a USB device, as well as a unique CSI camera cable. No matter how you want to use your Raspberry Pi Zero , you will need a microSD card with an operating system and a high-quality 5V power supply to power your board.
Note: As of the release of the Raspberry Pi Zero the NOOBS image will need to be updated to work on Pi Zero boards. You can download the image here.
