Element14 and Raspberry Pi are teaming up to give members of the design community an opportunity to try out the new Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W.

The distributor, a division of Avnet, will give its community the chance to use the device as well as share their designs with others in the community.

Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is its latest single-board computer and the successor to the Raspberry Pi Zero W. It has a form factor-compatible drop-in replacement capability and can be used for a wide range of internet of things projects such as:

  • Wi-Fi security cameras
  • Internet radio players and smart speakers
  • Portable game consoles
  • Smart alarm clocks
  • Drones

The single board computer allows makers or designers to learn how to build electronic devices for home automation from anything from security cameras to Bluetooth speakers.

The RoadTest is a product review program sponsored by Element14 to provide opinions about a product’s quality, ease of use and performance.
