Check out our range for LED & IR toys, ePaper applications, power solutions and much more to expand your range of projects.
The Raspberry Pi Zero is a single board computer released by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. It is the entry-level model Raspberry Pi perfect for hobbyists, makers and industrial engineers looking to create solutions where small size and low power consumption are important. This is especially relevant for applications in the wearables space as well as up and coming applications like IoT (internet of things) devices, embedded hardware that does not require the quad-core power of the Raspberry Pi 2B and a multitude of other applications.
Raspberry Pi Zero Cable Kit Contents
BCM2835 (same as Pi 1) but up-clocked to 1GHz, so 40% faster
512MB of RAM
micro-USB for data
micro-USB for power
unpopulated 40-pin GPIO connector (same pinout as A+/B+/2B)
Size is 65mm x 30mm x 5mm
HAT Compatibility Note
The Pi Zero is fully compatible with all HAT breakout boards, as it features the same 40 Pin GPIO as the Raspberry Pi 2/B+/A+
Inputs and Outputs
MicroSD Card Slot: The Pi Zero gets its storage space from a MicroSD card, which you'll need to install the operating system on.
Mini HDMI: Video output for the Pi Zero is by way of a mini-HDMI connector. In terms of their operation, these connectors perform identically to their larger versions. Just be aware that you'll need a mini-HDMI to standard HDMI cable for your monitor or TV.
Micro USB: You'll notice there are two micro USB connectors on the Pi Zero. One is for data (the connector on the left, if the MicroSD card slot is on the left), and one is for power. Don't get them mixed up. For the data one, you might want to get a cable or an adapter so you can connect a USB hub, and therefore all your peripherals (keyboard, mouse etc).
GPIO: The Pi Zero has the same 40 pin General Purpose Input/Output connections as the Model A+, B+ and RPi2, but the connector pins are unpopulated. So if you want to use the GPIO, you'll either have to solder the required pins in place, or solder your connections directly to the Pi Zero.
RUN Mode Pins: There are two unpopulated RUN mode pins, which can be used to connect a reset button to the Pi Zero. Again, you'll either have to add the pins yourself, or solder the button straight to the board.
Composite Video: Here's an interesting one. There's an RCA composited video output via two (unpopulated) pins, so you can hook the Pi Zero up to older display equipment that accepts a phono plug as an input
Camera Connector: The Raspberry Pi Zero v1.3 now comes complete with a camera port. Using the new Raspberry Pi Zero Camera Adapter, you can now connect a Raspberry Pi camera to your Zero. This adapter doesn't come with this Raspberry Pi Zero Cable kit, but it is available here.
