Understanding the standard connectors and test points

If you've worked with a Raspberry Pi 1, 2, or 3 before, you will find the Raspberry Pi Zero to be similar, but quite a bit smaller. To accommodate such a small size, several connectors had to be miniaturized or reduced. Taking a close look, you will find that the same potential is contained in this small board. Throughout the following recipes, we will look at the Raspberry Pi Zero, its functional components, and how it compares to the larger Raspberry Pi boards. By the end of this chapter, you will have a running Raspberry Pi Zero!
