The Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W is the latest board in the Raspberry Pi Zero family, with a 1GHz quad-core processor and 512MB SDRAM and was released on the 28th October 2021.

When the Raspberry Pi Zero W was released in 2017 we modified the board with an external antenna connector which was a very popular blog post and with the announcement of the new Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W version we tried to order the new board and try the same modification again.

Initially there was very limited stock available and we were not able to order the new board until the end of November.

As with the previous version the Raspberry Pi foundation have left a PCB footprint and jumper pads for a U.FL RF connector to use with an external antenna but the new Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W has a solid PCB trance going to the built in antenna compared to the 0201 link used on the previous board.”
