Raspberry Pi Model B+ 512MB Revision 1.2

Raspberry Pi Model B+ 512MB Revision 1.2
Item# Pi-Bplus

Product Description:

Here is the new Raspberry Pi B+. Design and Manufacture in UK, Ship directly from USA TODAY!

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn how computers work, how to manipulate the electronic world around them, and how to program.

Here's a brief overview of what's new

Dual step-down (buck) power supply for 3.3V and 1.8V
5V supply has polarity protection, 2A fuse and hot-swap protection (so you can plug/unplug USB without resetting the board)
New USB/Ethernet controller chip
4 USB ports instead of 2 ports
40 GPIO pins instead of 26. The top/first 26 pins match the original layout, 9 additional GPIO and 2 EEPROM Plate identification pins
Composite (NTSC/PAL) video now integrated into 4-pole 3.5mm 'headphone' jack
MicroSD card socket instead of full size SD
Four mounting holes in rectangular layout
Many connectors moved around

What's not new:

Same basic size, 85mm x 56mm
Same Processor, Broadcom SoC running at 700MHz (can be overclocked)
Same RAM, 512MB soldered on top of the Broadcom chip
Same power connector, microUSB
Same software - be sure to run the latest Raspbian/NooBs but otherwise the overall Linux software is the same
First 26-pins of GPIO are the same
Same HDMI port
Audio part of the A/V jack is the same
Same Camera and DSI Display connector
