raspberry pi 3

Raspberry Pi is well known as the perfect board for learning, coding, and creating your own projects. The Raspberry Pi 3 has included integrated 802.11 b/g/n wireless LAN, Bluetooth Classical and LE. You didn’t need additional peripherals to make it wireless. It is 10x the performance of Raspberry Pi 1. What’s more, it has complete compatibility with Raspberry Pi 2, which means almost all the previous Raspberry Pi 2 accessories are compatible with Raspberry Pi 3.
