Raspberry Pi designed into a keyboard
The new Raspberry Pi 400 is a keyboard that incorporates a purpose-built board based on the Raspberry Pi 4.

Raspberry Pi 400 integrates the electronics in a keyboard, much like many models in the early days of computing. A USB-C based power supply, mouse and micro-SD card configured with a suitable operating system, such as Raspberry Pi OS, is all that is needed to get started with the Pi 400 PC.

"The all-in-one form factor is about simplifying the setup for people who just want to use their Raspberry Pi as a PC," says Raspberry Pi CEO Eben Upton. "Fewer components on the desk means less clutter, faster setup and teardown times, and fewer opportunities to misconfigure the device. It actually also brings some cost savings, so the kit is significantly cheaper than the Pi 4 4GB Desktop Kit."

The Raspberry Pi 400 is based around the 64-bit BCM2711 SoC, which features a quad-core Arm Cortex-A72 CPU running at 1.8GHz, 20% higher than the Raspberry Pi SBC. The SoC also offers a VideoCore VI graphics processor supporting OpenGL ES 3.1 and Vulkan graphics, H.264 and H.265 video, and image processing capabilities. The processing cores are supported by 4GB of LPDDR4-3200 DRAM.

The Raspberry Pi 400 provides high performance and a rich feature, including:

• Processor: a 28nm Broadcom BCM2711 quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 64-bit processor clocked at 1.8GHz.

• Memory: 4GB LPDDR4-3200 RAM, and a micro SD card slot.

• Connectivity: dual-band 802.11ac wireless networking delivering real-world data rates of more than 100Mbps, Gigabit Ethernet, and Bluetooth 5.1. The two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports can be used to connect a wide range of peripherals.

• Multimedia: two micro-HDMI ports, supporting up to 4Kp60.

• Interfacing: customers can easily integrate Raspberry Pi 400 into embedded designs using the horizontal 40-Pin GPIO header.

Pricing starts at $70.
