Overview

Raspberry Pi 5 Single Board Computer marks a notable evolution in the Raspberry Pi series, offering two to three times the processing speed of its predecessors. This full-size computer, developed with in-house silicon, features enhanced connectivity, including dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0/BLE. It supports faster data transfer to external UAS drives and other high-speed peripherals. The device boasts two 4-lane MIPI interfaces, allowing for a combination of up to two cameras or displays. Additionally, its peak SD card performance is doubled through SD104 high-speed mode. The Pi 5 also introduces a single-lane PCI Express 2.0 interface for connecting higher-bandwidth peripherals. Available in 4GB and 8GB variants, this model blends speed with versatility. The improved connectivity options and energy efficiency make it suitable for various applications, from simple educational projects to complex automation tasks.

Raspberry Pi 5 Features  

Raspberry Pi 5 is equipped with a Broadcom BCM2712, a 2.4GHz quad-core 64-bit Arm Cortex-A76 CPU. This processor includes cryptography extensions, 512KB per-core L2 caches, and a 2MB shared L3 cache, ensuring high-speed and efficient processing. It features a cutting-edge VideoCore VII GPU that supports OpenGL ES 3.1 and Vulkan 1.2, ideal for advanced graphical applications and gaming. For display, the device boasts dual 4Kp60 HDMI outputs with HDR support, coupled with a 4Kp60 HEVC decoder for superior video handling capabilities.

Memory-wise, it comes in 4GB and 8GB LPDDR4X-4267 SDRAM variants, providing ample and fast memory performance. Connectivity options include dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0/BLE for versatile wireless communications. Storage is facilitated through a microSD card slot supporting high-speed SDR104 mode. The Pi 5 also features 2 USB 3.0 ports enabling simultaneous 5Gbps operations and 2 USB 2.0 ports for additional peripherals. Gigabit Ethernet has robust network connectivity, including PoE+ support (requiring an additional PoE+ HAT).

Raspberry Pi 5 has 2× 4-lane MIPI camera/display transceivers, offering flexibility for multimedia and imaging projects. A PCIe 2.0 x1 interface is also present for fast peripherals, expandable with an M.2 HAT or other adapter. Power management is efficient, thanks to the 5V/5A DC input via USB-C with Power Delivery support. It retains the standard Raspberry Pi 40-pin header, ensuring compatibility with a wide array of modules and sensors. Additionally, the Pi 5 includes a real-time clock powered by an external battery and a dedicated power button, enhancing usability and timekeeping precision.

Powerful Gateway to AI and Machine Learning

Due to its enhanced processing power and graphics capabilities, the Raspberry Pi 5 is a valuable platform for exploring artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). It can efficiently run TensorFlow Lite and other ML frameworks, making it easy to develop and deploy AI-powered applications. These applications can be used for various purposes, including image recognition, object detection, natural language processing, and predictive analytics. This makes the Raspberry Pi 5 a versatile tool for general computing and cutting-edge AI and ML projects.
