Raspberry Pi Model B gets more power, faster connectivity

Wireless networking has been given a boost too, thanks to an integrated Cypress CYW43455 combination chip that rocks both 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2, routed to a Proant PCB antenna like the one used on the Zero W, for improved wireless performance, particularly in the 5 GHz band. All of the wireless circuitry is housed under a metal shield that’s been embossed with the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s logo. It’s certainly a nice aesthetic touch, but has also allowed the board to be FCC certified as a radio module, a move that should reduce future conformance testing costs.
