The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ will remain in production until at least January 2023.
SOFTWARE & OS
Beginners should start with the
NOOBS (New Out Of Box Software) ( //www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/installation/noobs.md ) operating system installation manager, which gives the user a choice of operating system from the standard distributions.
SD cards with NOOBS pre-installed should be available from any of our global distributors and resellers.
Alternatively, you can download NOOBS ( //www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/ ) .
Raspbian is the recommended operating system for normal use on a Raspberry Pi.
You can browse basic examples to help you get started with some of the software available in Raspbian ( //www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/usage/ ) , find more detail about the Raspbian operating system ( //www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/raspbian/ ), or read information on fundamental Linux usage and commands for navigating the Raspberry Pi ( //www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/linux/ ) and managing its file system and users.
The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ has undergone extensive compliance testing, and meets the following European standards:
Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMC) 2014/30/EU
Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive 2011/65/EU
View and download global compliance certificates for Raspberry Pi products ( //www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/raspberrypi/conformity.md ).
The dual-band wireless LAN comes with modular compliance certification. This allows the board to be designed into end product with significantly reduced wireless LAN compliance testing, improving both cost and time to market.
