Raspberry Pi 5 features a 64-bit quad-core Arm Cortex-A76 processor running at 2.4GHz. It delivers a 2-3x increase in CPU performance compared to Raspberry Pi 4. You'll also notice a substantial uplift in graphics performance from an 800MHz VideoCore VII GPU, dual 4Kp60 display output over HDMI, and state-of-the-art camera support from a rearchitected Raspberry Pi Image Signal Processor.

For the first time, this is a full-size Raspberry Pi computer using silicon built in-house at Raspberry Pi. The RP1 “southbridge” provides the bulk of the I/O capabilities for Raspberry Pi 5, and delivers a step change in peripheral performance and functionality. Aggregate USB bandwidth is more than doubled, yielding faster transfer speeds to external UAS drives and other high-speed peripherals. A pair of four-lane 1.5Gbps MIPI transceivers triples the total bandwidth and supports any combination of up to two cameras or displays. The platform exposes a single-lane PCI Express 2.0 interface, providing support for high-bandwidth peripherals.

Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

Electrical Prototyping
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
