NEWARK ELEMENT14 Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ is built on a new quad-core Broadcom BCM2837 64-bit application processor running at 1.4GHz and is more than 15% faster than the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, delivering increased performance for both professional and maker markets.  Device now includes dual-band wireless LAN: a new Cypress networking device, delivering 2.4GHz and 5GHz IEEE 802.11ac wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.2 capability. Product provides improved thermal management, faster Ethernet (Gigabit Ethernet over USB 2.0, maximum throughput of 300Mbps), while Power over Ethernet (PoE) enabled RJ45 provides PoE support via a new PoE HAT. The wireless subsystem also comes with modular compliance certification, which allows the board to be designed into end products with significantly reduced requirements for wireless compliance testing, improving both cost and time to market.
