Raspberry Pi 400 integrates the electronics in a keyboard, much like many models in the early days of computing. A USB-C based power supply, mouse and micro-SD card configured with a suitable operating system, such as Raspberry Pi OS, is all that is needed to get started with the Pi 400 PC.
The Raspberry Pi 400 is based around the 64-bit BCM2711 SoC, which features a quad-core Arm Cortex-A72 CPU running at 1.8GHz, 20% higher than the Raspberry Pi SBC. The SoC also offers a VideoCore VI graphics processor supporting OpenGL ES 3.1 and Vulkan graphics, H.264 and H.265 video, and image processing capabilities. The processing cores are supported by 4GB of LPDDR4-3200 DRAM.
The Raspberry Pi 400 provides high performance and a rich feature, including:
• Processor: a 28nm Broadcom BCM2711 quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 64-bit processor clocked at 1.8GHz.
• Memory: 4GB LPDDR4-3200 RAM, and a micro SD card slot.
• Connectivity: dual-band 802.11ac wireless networking delivering real-world data rates of more than 100Mbps, Gigabit Ethernet, and Bluetooth 5.1. The two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports can be used to connect a wide range of peripherals.
• Multimedia: two micro-HDMI ports, supporting up to 4Kp60.
• Interfacing: customers can easily integrate Raspberry Pi 400 into embedded designs using the horizontal 40-Pin GPIO header.
"At OKdo, we believe Raspberry Pi 400 will bring all of the strengths of the Raspberry Pi platform and community to an entirely new audience," said Richard Curtin, OKdo’s SVP of Technology. "The convenience of a PC, housed in a keyboard, that requires no self-assembly and is ready to go out-of-the-box removes one the few remaining barriers to adoption for Raspberry Pi."
Lee Turner, Global Head of Semiconductors and SBC at Farnell, said: “The innovative Raspberry Pi 400 provides all the functionality of a desktop computer in a small footprint, and at an affordable price point. While Raspberry Pi 4 broke barriers in its versatility for use
