Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is a highly flexible and economical new member of the Raspberry Pi family and builds on the success of the current Zero product range. It is built around a Raspberry Pi-designed RP3A0 System-in-Package which integrates the BCM2710A1 die used in the launch variant of Raspberry Pi 3 with 512 MB of LPDDR2 SDRAM.

Customers who are already comfortable working with Raspberry Pi Zero devices will appreciate the extra functionality of Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W. This compact computer is suitable for building embedded IoT projects and wireless networking applications and can also be used as a general-purpose computer. Its predecessor, the Raspberry Pi Zero W, has been used in a wide range of applications from miniature arcade cabinets to electric skateboards.
