Description: The credit-card-sized computer has become even smaller! The Raspberry Pi Zero W 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. With the addition of wireless LAN and Bluetooth, the Raspberry Pi Zero W is ideal for making embedded Internet of Things (IoT) projects. The Pi Zero W 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 W 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 W 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 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 W, 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 W the NOOBS image will need to be updated to work on Pi Zero boards. You can download the image here.

Important: The Raspberry Pi Zero W is limited to one unit per customer.

  • I want 10. When will the limit be removed?

    • There are no plans to remove the limit. The limit has been put in place by the Pi Foundation and carries over to all of their distributors (including us). Sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

      We do sell our Basic Kit which does not have a limit and includes all the cables you need to get started (since the board requires less common ones).

        Answers my question… I do not want to buy under this requirement. Im not going to buy all the extra baggage for a $10 board. Pi foundation need to pull out the proverbial head from the proverbial hole and JUST MAKE MORE of the zero/zeroW. Stop playing this game. It IS NOT like it cannot be done.
