Raspberry Pi 4 - again rises its bar - more data processing

To be  honest, the most awaited thing in 2019 - yes, people are fond of raspberry pi 3 and its evolution but its needs more feature updates on hardware.

The fact of raspberry pi introduction during the time of Android mobile phone ranging at 512mb, 1GB ram are just the thing of the past.

Now, Raspberry pi 4 has introduced RAM variant of 1,2 and 4GB - there are few obvious reasons to ponder on this.

First and Foremost would be the amount of data to process - yes, Raspberry pi has taken in huge numbers by many open source community to use.

The update has been for more industrial usage of Raspberry pi and also for machine learning, deep learning and Artificial intelligence.

People are trying to install huge Operating systems and even tensorflow have been tried rather than tensorflow lite.

The Hardware comes with Cortex A 72 - ARM processor at much improved pace of 1.5 GHz.

Just have a look at the spec:

  • Broadcom BCM2711, Quad-core Cortex-A72 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.5GHz
  • 2GB LPDDR4-2400 SDRAM
  • 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz IEEE 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 5.0, BLE
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • 2 USB 3.0 ports; 2 USB 2.0 ports
  • Raspberry Pi standard 40 pin GPIO header (fully backward compatible with previous boards)
  • 2 × micro-HDMI ports (up to 4kp60 supported)
  • 2-lane MIPI DSI display port
  • 2-lane MIPI CSI camera port
  • 4-pole stereo audio and composite video port
  • H.265 (4kp60 decode), H264 (1080p60 decode, 1080p30 encode)
  • OpenGL ES 3.0 graphics
  • Micro-SD card slot for loading operating system and data storage
  • 5V DC via USB-C connector (minimum 3A*)
  • 5V DC via GPIO header (minimum 3A*)
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE) enabled (requires separate PoE HAT)
  • Operating temperature: 0 – 50 degrees C ambient

The improved Rpi 4 will open doors for many featured computer products in the coming days to work on many products.
