The new Strato Pi Mini is in stock.
We have completely redesigned the Strato Pi Mini!
The power supply stage is now based on the new Linear Technology LT8609S regulator. The LT8609S is a very high efficiency step-down switching regulator, based on Linear’s Silent Switcher 2 Architecture, and offers ultra low EMI emissions. It can deliver up to 2A of continuous current, with peak loads of 3A (<1sec) to support applications such as wireless data transceivers which require high transient loads.
The real time clock back-up battery, originally soldered to the circuit board, is now replaced with a standard, user replaceable, CR1025 battery and a robust battery holder.
Finally, just as Mini’s big brother, the Strato Pi CAN, Strato Pi Mini now includes a Microchip ATECC608A secure element chip. The ATECC608A, a cryptographic co-processor with secure hardware-based key storage, is connected to the Raspberry Pi via the I2C bus. It implements a long list of powerful security features such as protected storage for keys, certificates or data, hardware support for symmetric and asymmetric algorithms, elliptic curve digital signature, high quality random number generator, a guaranteed unique 72-bit serial number and other hardware based security functions.
The new Strato Pi Mini is now available at our on-line store.
