The Raspberry Pi 5
On the 28th of September, 2023, the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced the highly anticipated Raspberry Pi 5.
The centrepiece of the Raspberry Pi 5 is its powerful Broadcom BCM2712 quad-core Arm Cortex A76 processor, a computing powerhouse running at an impressive 2.4GHz. This represents a substantial advancement over its predecessor, the Raspberry Pi 4, with a processing speed that is up to three times faster. The enhanced processing capabilities of the Cortex A76 promise a smoother and more responsive experience, opening up new possibilities for a wide range of applications.
Keenly aware of the significance of this release, we wasted no time acquiring the latest Raspberry Pi 5 to conduct compatibility tests with our existing range of Raspberry Pi expansion boards. After testing and examination, we are delighted to share the exciting news: our current lineup of expansion boards is fully compatible with the Raspberry Pi 5.
Whether you use our IO Pi Plus for GPIO expansion, our ADC Pi for analogue-to-digital conversion, or our Serial Pi Plus for RS232 communication, you can seamlessly integrate these expansion boards with the Raspberry Pi 5.
