The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ (Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Plus) is the latest version of the Raspberry Pi, a tiny credit card size computer. Just add a keyboard, mouse, display, power supply, micro SD card with installed Linux Distribution and you'll have a fully fledged computer that can run applications from word processors and spreadsheets to games.

As the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B + supports HD video, you can even create a media centre with it. The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the first Raspberry Pi to be open-source from the get-go, expect it to be the defacto embedded Linux board in all the forums.

PI-star 3B+ MMDVM

By: on 7 July 2018
As I am relatively new to pi-star and its capabilities I am really qualified to post a technical statement. The unit arrived on time in a padded envelope. I attached the MMDVM_ HS_ Hat _ duplex board and loaded the MMDVM Pi-star 3B+ operating software from Pi-Star UK. Both boards powered up Okay and I was able to set up my profile. I have fitted a Nextion 3.5" screen to the MMDVM Board to observe on line activity.

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ Performs Nicely

5 May 2018
I was pleasantly surprised with the Pi3B+. Performance is very good, running streaming multimedia to a HD display it is using around 25% CPU yet picture quality is rock solid. Quality of manufacture looks very good. The NOOBS boot image is trivially easy to set up and has a decent suite of utilities as well.

Great little piece of equipment, finally has 1Gbps Ethernet (well nearly 300Mbps). But hey, I can run docker on it, and do all sorts of things, VPN server, remote desktop, etc.
