Raspberry Pi 3B+ was released on March 14, 2018, on World Pi Day. This is an updated version of the Pi 3B model from the most popular series of single-board computers in the world. The new, even faster processor (1.4GHz), dual-band Wi-Fi, as well as extensive connectors and interfaces, are one of the highlights of this development platform. Interestingly, you can use Pi 3B+ not only as a computer for internet browsing or control unit for electronics & robotics systems but also as a multimedia player. In addition to the Broadcom BCM2837B0 SoC, the CPU has an integrated GPU - the Broadcom VideoCore IV clocked at 250MHz. Thanks to this feature, Rasberry Pi 3B+ can play movies and photos in very high quality. Hardware and software support HD 1080p / 30FPS, H.264 / 30FPS as well as OpenGL ES 1.1 and ES 2.0. The Raspberry Pi 3B+ mini computer board has a standard HDMI type A socket to which you can connect an OLED monitor. The Botland store offer includes all types of widely used audio and video cables. With these cables, you can quickly and easily connect the Raspberry Pi to a TV or home theatre.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Raspberry Pi 3B+ - amazing sound and video quality at its finest details
The HDMI interface carries out digital video and audio transmission via a single cable. The data transmission process through the HDMI interface uses TMDS coding, which effectively protects transmitted signals against the influence of external electromagnetic interference. TMDS also enables a coding of signals in a two-way transmission process via HDMI. This method of digital coding and transmission of audio and video is also subject to the hardware functions of the Raspberry Pi 4B single-board minicomputer. Through the HDMI interface, you can easily and quickly connect the Raspberry Pi to a computer monitor, TV and other multimedia devices. The Broadcom VideoCore VI internal GPU offers amazing image quality for viewing photos, videos and games!
Types of the HDMI connectors
There are several types of HDMI connectors used in consumer and professional electronics devices. Such connectors include:
- A-type HDMI connector - this is a standard 19-pin HDMI connector, which uses TMDS for data transmission - an advanced signal coding technology that effectively protects against electromagnetic interference. The A-type HDMI connector is the most commonly used type of HDMI connector. Such a connector is used on the PCB of the Raspberry Pi 3B+ minicomputer
- B-type HDMI connector - Similar to the A-type HDMI connector, it is a data transmission connector in the TMDS standard. It contains 29 leads and enables the implementation of two-channel data transmission
- C-type HDMI connector - a smaller version of the A-type HDMI connector. This is a 19-pin connector in which signal line connections have been exchanged with interference shields. To connect a standard HDMI cable with the A plug to such a connector, use a converter from A-type HDMI to C-type HDMI. This type of connector is found in Raspberry Pi Zero and Pi Zero W.
- D-type HDMI connector - this is a 19-pin connector, while the smallest of all HDMI connectors. This type of connector is installed in many mobile devices (e.g. tablets), and also occurs in the number of two pieces on the PCB of the Raspberry Pi 4B single-board mini-computer. To connect devices equipped with standard HDMI A-type connectors, e.g. computer monitors, you will need a converter from HDMI A-type to HDMI D-type.
High-quality wires and connectors for Raspberry Pi 3B+ - available at the Botland Store!
The Botland store offer includes high-quality HDMI cables for minicomputers from the Raspberry Pi series. The cables are made of materials that provide excellent protection against mechanical damage, very good shielding of electromagnetic interference, as well as high-quality data transmission without delays. You can also use HDMI cables available in our store to connect the gaming console to the TV, as well as in video monitoring systems. After connecting the monitor to the HDMI output in the Raspberry Pi, the operating system automatically selects the best possible graphic settings.
