Meet the New Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W

Introducing the New Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W

The second version of the tiny and powerful fan favorite, building on the success of the current Zero family, Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is built around a Raspberry Pi-designed System-in-Package, which integrates the BCM2710A1 die used in Raspberry Pi 3 with 512MB of RAM. The exact performance uplift over Zero varies across workloads, but for multi-threaded sysbench it is almost exactly five times faster.

Key features:

  • 1GHz quad-core, 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 CPU
  • VideoCore IV GPU • 512MB LPDDR2 DRAM
  • 802.11b/g/n wireless LAN
  • Bluetooth 4.2 / Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
  • MicroSD card slot
  • Mini HDMI and USB 2.0 OTG ports
  • Micro USB power
  • HAT-compatible 40-pin header
  • Composite video and reset pins via solder test points
  • CSI camera connector

The Raspbery Pi Zero 2 W uses the same Footprint as the previous Raspberry Pi Zero W model. 65mm x 30mm (x 5.2mm maximum z-height)

Like Raspberry Pi 1, Raspberry Pi Zero and Zero W are built around the Broadcom BCM2835 SoC. This neatly sidesteps the problem by using package-on-package (PoP) technology, in which the SDRAM package sits directly on top of the SoC. – Raspberry Pi 2021

Modular Radio Certification for Using Raspberry Pi Zero V2 in your own product design

Zero 2 W has FCC modular certification!

The Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W has a large metal shield can, which covers the wireless circuitry on the board and protects it from external interference.

Like all Raspberry Pi products since 3B+, Zero 2 W has FCC modular certification, which reduces the compliance workload involved in incorporating it into an end product. – Raspberry Pi
