Newark, an Avnet company, has launched a variant for the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B computer with 8 GB of on-board memory, doubling the capacity of existing high-end models.

The additional memory will improve the real-time processing of large amounts of data with minimal latency such as edge gateways, machine vision and facial recognition for use by computer users, hobbyists and makers.

The Raspberry Pi with 8 GB could also be used for imaging applications along with the Raspberry Pi 12 MP camera with interchangeable lenses.

Other features of the developer board include a 28 nm BCM2711 system-on-chip for energy efficiency, a quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 64 bit processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, two micro HDMI ports, two USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet connectivity and dual-band wireless networking at 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.
