Raspberry Pi Zero W (Wireless)

Raspberry Pi Zero Wireless is an upgrade to the popular $5 Pi Zero board released back in 2016, with added support for Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 via the Cypress CYW43438 IC, the same used for Raspberry Pi 3B wireless connectivity. Given the strong similarities with the non-wireless Pi Zero, this board also supports all Pi Zero distros, images and software.

Raspberry Pi Zero WH is a variant with already soldered pin headers, and can be found for $14 instead of $10

Jan. 1, 2017 12:00am – The Raspberry Pi Zero W (Wireless) SBC from Raspberry Pi Foundation is based on a 1-core 32-bit Broadcom BCM2835 backed by up to 1GB RAM.
