Case for Raspberry Pi 3 combines security with versatility and style
30 March 2016
Cyntech Components introduced a new ABS plastic case for the Raspberry Pi 3 that is fully compatible with the Pi B+ and Pi 2 models.
This versatile case builds on the success of Cyntech’s Pi B case with an extensive range of enhanced features, making it ideal for almost anyone who needs a small, low-cost computer; from maker, hobbyist and educational users through to industrial and commercial applications.
Although the Pi 3 LED indicators are now on the opposite side of the board, the Pi 3 case retains Cyntech’s clever light-pipe feature that enables the LEDs to be viewed when the case is closed. Security is a key requirement when the Raspberry Pi is deployed in commercial applications and the Pi 3 case includes a cover that prevents the removal of the SD card and also for the USB port to secure a WiFi dongle for example.
A unique feature is a case spacer that provides for 10mm increments in the overall height of the case, up to 30mm. This enables add-on boards and even back-up batteries to be included within the case, allowing system designers to package a complete working application in a neat, self-contained and secure case.
Dave Mellor, Managing Director of Cyntech Components, said the case can be used almost anywhere and covers 99% of all applications for the Raspberry Pi. Like the original design, it still provides direct access to all the board edge sockets for power, Ethernet, HDMI, USB and 3.5mm audio connections, and comes in a range of colours.
