Just as small. Five times as fast.
At the heart of Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is RP3A0, a custom-built system-in-package designed by Raspberry Pi in the UK. With a quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 1GHz and 512MB of SDRAM, Zero 2 is up to five times as fast as the original Raspberry Pi Zero.
Wireless LAN is built in to a shielded enclosure with improved RF compliance, giving you more flexibility when designing with Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W.
All in the same tiny 65mm × 30mm form factor.
Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is perfect for a range of smart home applications and other IoT projects. From security cameras to Bluetooth speakers, Zero 2 W has the tiny form factor and impressive power that make it an ideal computer for your projects.
Like the original Raspberry Pi Zero, Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W features a mini HDMI port, a micro USB port, and a micro USB power port.
Raspberry Pi offers a wide range of high-quality, low-cost cables and adapters to get you up and running on your Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W.
We’ve got the power
The official Raspberry Pi Micro USB Power Supply is designed to be the most reliable source of power for your Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W.
It is also compatible with any other Raspberry Pi that features a micro USB connector.

Micro USB power
Composite video and reset pins via solder test points
65mm x 30mm
Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W has undergone extensive compliance testing and meets a number of regional and international standards.
We’ll update this list as we answer questions in the comments, but here are a few to get you going.
Are you discontinuing Zero and Zero W?
No. We seldom discontinue products, even where they have been superseded by more modern product at the same price point. Zero 2 W is $5 more expensive than Zero W, and joins the Zero family as a third member.
Note that Zero and Zero W are currently experiencing supply constraints in the context of the global semiconductor shortage. We hope that this will be resolved in 2022.
Will there be a version of Zero 2 W with 1GB of SDRAM?
No. 1GB LPDDR2 monodie are not available, and producing a SiP with two stacked SDRAM dice would be very challenging.
What do the markings on RP3A0 mean?
RP3 is the name of the package. A0 indicates that this is the first version of the part. AU indicates that the package uses gold (as opposed to copper) bond wires.
The 4-digit code is a manufacturing date, expressed as a year and a week number. Amusingly quite a lot of units were manufactured in week 41 of 2020, yielding the misleading code “2041”.
The 6-digit code is an order date, expressed in the format YYMMDD.
How long will Zero 2 W remain in production?
We aim to keep Zero 2 W in production until at least January 2028.
