Raspberry Pi is back with more new products, this time it's an all-in-one computer!
Hello everyone! As you may have seen from the title of today's blog, we are back again to announce another brand new Raspberry Pi product and you can order it from SparkFun, today. Please say hello to the Raspberry Pi 400, an affordable personal computer for day-to-day use! Two separate versions of this new computer are now available for preorder, a $70 stand-alone keyboard computer and a $100 kit that includes everything you need to get started except for a monitor! These new RPi's are a great way to work from home and study in today's world.
The Raspberry Pi 400 is a complete Raspberry Pi 4-based personal computer, integrated into a keyboard. By incorporating the board into a keyboard, it removes the need for a case and other accessories normally needed to run a Raspberry and creates a more clean configuration. It makes for the perfect configuration for a public machine or in an educational setting including the incorporation of a Kensington lock.
The Raspberry Pi 400 features a Broadcom 1.8GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 CPU with 4GB of DDR4 RAM. VideoCore VI graphics (OpenGL ES 3.1, Vulkan) and 4kp60 HEVC decode provide the ability to run a 4k monitor at 60FPS or 2x 4k monitors at 30FPS through the two micro HDMI ports. An Ethernet port provides true Gigabit Ethernet support and there's two USB 3.0 and 1 USB 2.0 ports available for accessories and HIDs. A USB-C port is used for power and supports 5V, 3A operation. Finally the standard Raspberry Pi 40 pin connector is present on the back of the keyboard for HAT support.
SparkFun is very excited to carry the new Raspberry Pi 400. These new personal computers, built into compact keyboards, are a perfect place to get started with Raspberry Pi whether you are an experienced user, a new student, or anything in between. We expect to start shipping the Raspberry Pi 400 within the next week or two so make sure to place your order now to reserve your own!
