Raspberry Pi 400

The Most Powerful Raspberry Pi Keyboard Computer

 
 

Announced on the 2nd November 2020, the new Raspberry Pi 400 Keyboard Computer is now available at the Cytron marketplace! The Raspberry Pi 400 is a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B embedded in a Keyboard. This is a mini size with a US layout keyboard, with 78 keypads. It is the most practical and innovative integration. As for most of the applications, we will need a keyboard to access or to navigate the computer, like a laptop.

 

 

What make Raspberry Pi 400 MOST Powerful?

.

Faster Processor yet Cooler Motherboard.

Yes, Raspberry Pi 400's processor (BCM2711C0) is clocked at 1.8GHz (factory default maximum clock speed), but it does not require any additional cooling even though the motherboard is enclosure under the keyboard. We have run a stress test on this new computer for 20 minutes with a full load on every core, the CPU temperature raises from ~35ºC but stays under 55ºC. Amazing! The secret recipe of good thermal performance is a cleverly designed aluminum heatsink plate on top of the CPU (underneath the keypads) that ensure Raspberry Pi 400 always stays cool.

USB 3.0 Ports and USB Boot Ready

The Raspberry Pi 400 also remains the two USB 3.0 ports that offer speed up to 5Gbps, perfect for connecting fast peripherals like SSDs and flash drives for USB Boot. There is also a USB 2.0 port for connecting less speed-dependent peripherals like mouse or USB to Audio adapter.

USB boot firmware has been released as a stable update by Raspberry Pi Foundation and many love it. Raspberry Pi 400 is USB boot ready out of the box. So you can get faster boot and performance if it boots from SSD or M.2 :) Try it!

Built-in Power Button

This function has been design-in by many enclosures for Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, for example, Argon-One Case and Power HAT Case. It is a very convenient feature for beginners, you do not need to click the Raspberry Pi Logo from the operating system and click "Shutdown" to shut down the Raspberry Pi properly. Or need to recycle the power to boot up the Raspberry Pi again. Raspberry Pi 400 Keyboard Computer comes with Power Button integrated. Ready out of the box, no script or firmware update needed, just use it. This power button supports both soft shutdown (a.k.a.: safe shutdown) and hard shutdown (a.k.a.: force shutdown). With this new power button, you will never need to off the power adapter :)

Kensington Lock

To increase the physical security of the Raspberry Pi 400, A Kensington Security Slot (also called a K-Slot or Kensington lock) is integrated too. This feature will be welcomed by the maker lab or school to reduce the computer missing.

No Extra Enclosure/Case or Cooling Needed

With the motherboard embedded in the Keyboard, there is no additional enclosure needed to protect it :) And with the big heatsink to ensure good heat dissipation, no extra heatsink or cooling fan is needed. Saving the cost and hassle to get these accessories for Raspberry Pi 400, just focus on using it :)

Push-Push MicroSD Card Slot

All of us love the push-push microSD slot (push-lock and push-release) on Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, but it has been replaced with a push-pull microSD slot on Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ and 4 Model B. We are hoping to get it back soon. Now, the waiting is over, Raspberry Pi 400 comes with a push-push MicroSD card slot. Easy and secure! No more missing microSD card.

 

Gigabit Ethernet

Raspberry Pi 400 also comes with a true Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 jack, designed for super-speedy wired networking making it perfect as a media server or network-related project. We manage to get 930 Mbits/s (average) through Iperf3 on Raspberry Pi 400’s Ethernet port.

4K Multimedia, Dual Display

Same to Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, Raspberry Pi 400 is capable of supporting 4Kp60 multimedia and it comes with two micro-HDMI ports, which allow you to utilize the same micro-HDMI cable of Raspberry Pi 4 Model B (In case you already have it). With 4K resolution, you can use much larger displays with crisp, sharp, high resolution. Use the H.265 4Kp60 hardware decoding to watch 4K movies in your favorite media center distro.

With two micro-HDMI port, Raspberry Pi 400 is capable of delivering dual display: one up to 4Kp60, or two 4Kp30 multimedia.

Of course, in the case you are new to Raspberry Pi 400, we have you covered! Get the official micro HDMI cable here.

Backward Compatible 40-Pin GPIO

Alongside the innovative integration of the motherboard into a keyboard, Raspberry Pi 400 still keeps the backward compatible 40-pin GPIO, just is it bought out in horizontal headers instead of vertical. Generally, all-digital making projects that use 40-pin GPIO can be completed with Raspberry Pi 400. However, due to the horizontal orientation, most of the HATs (Hardware Attach on Top) might have difficulty to stack to it. Yet, this new Raspberry Pi has the same GPIO as Raspberry Pi 4 Model B.

USB-C for Input Power

With the USB-C socket for Input power, Raspberry Pi 400 is able to get more power (preferred 15W or higher) and deliver higher power for its peripherals such as USB 3.0, e.g.: HDD and SSD Hard Disk. With that, you can utilize the existing power adapter of Raspberry Pi 4 Model B. We also have suitable USB-C power adapters. Grab the UK plug and EU plug here, both are official power adapter from Raspberry Pi Foundation.
