Raspberry Pi Zero W


Raspberry Pi Zero W

The Raspberry Pi is a popular Single Board Computer in that it is a full computer packed into a single board. Many may already familiar with the Raspberry Pi 4 and its predecessors, which comes in a form factor that has become as highly recognizable. The Raspberry Pi comes in an even smaller form factor. The introduction of the Raspberry Pi Zero allowed one to embed an entire computer in even smaller projects. While these directions should work for most any version and form factor of the Raspberry Pi Zero W.

The credit-card-sized computer has become even smaller. The Raspberry Pi Zero W is still the Pi you know and love, but at a largely reduced size of only 65mm long by 30mm wide. With the addition of wireless LAN and Bluetooth, the Raspberry Pi Zero W is ideal for making embedded IoT projects. The Pi Zero W has been designed to be as flexible and compact as possible with mini connectors and an unpopulated 40-pin GPIO, allowing you to use only what your project requires.

At the heart of the Raspberry Pi Zero W is a 1GHz BCM2835 single-core processor with 512MB RAM. The setup for the Raspberry Pi Zero W is a little more complicated than on other Pis.


balenaEtcher is a free and open-source utility used for writing image files such as .iso and .img files, as well as zipped folders onto storage media to create live SD cards and USB flash drives.

Raspberry Pi NoIR Camera V2.1

The infrared Camera Module v2 (Pi NoIR) has a Sony IMX219 8-megapixel sensor custom designed add-on board for Raspberry Pi, featuring a fixed focus lens. It’s capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images, and also support 1080p30, 720p60, and 640x480p60/90 video. The Pi NoIR gives you everything the regular Camera Module offers, with one difference: it does not employ an infrared filter. This means that pictures you take by daylight will look decidedly curious, but it gives you the ability to see in the dark with infrared lighting.

We bundle a little square of blue gel with the Pi NoIR “night vision”, which you can use with the camera to monitor the health of green plants. The Pi NoIR is very popular among wildlife hobbyists: with a few infrared LEDs, you can monitor what nocturnal animals are doing in your garden without disturbing them. It attaches to the Pi by way of one of the small sockets on the board’s upper surface and uses the dedicated CSi interface, designed especially for interfacing to cameras. The NoIR Camera has No InfraRed (NoIR) filter on the lens which makes it perfect for doing Infrared photography and taking pictures in low light (twilight) environments.


Improved Resolution

* 8 megapixel native resolution high quality Sony IMX219 image sensor
* Cameras are capable of 3280 x 2464 pixel static images

Remaining High Quality
