Raspberry Pi Foundation has a new toy, it is its new version of the CM or Compute Module. The compute module for adding muscle is now available. That is, it is about the Rapsberry Pi Compute Module 4, with a series of novelties and renewed in terms of hardware.
A new SBC board Reduced specially designed for industrial applications where this type of modules are needed. To know more about all its technical characteristics, you can continue reading ...
Compute Module 4 Features
La Raspberry Pi 4 was launched in June 2019, and now comes the version for industrial environments, the famous CM. A module that uses many of the components of the original Pi 4, such as its quad-core processor ARM Cortex-A72 at 1.5Ghz. A powerful chip that will be accompanied by different sizes of RAM and eMMC flash memory.
Among the possibilities of RAM you have from 1GB of LPDDR4-3200 to capacities of up to 8GB, going through the 2 and 4GB version.
Regarding his memory of internal flash storage type eMMCYou also have several versions to choose from, and that will alter the final price, which is about $ 25 starting. In this case you have the Lite version, with 0 GB, or versions with memory such as 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB.
You can also choose the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 with and without WiFi connectivity. In the case of SBC boards that have this type of network, it will be a module WiFi 802.11ac, that is to say, the famous WiFi 5 protocol. To that we must add Bluetooth 5.0, which will also be available.
Includes interface PCIe 2.0 and 28-pin GPIO, to be able to «play» with her in your projects ...
In short, depending on the connectivity, the type of main memory and the capacity of the flash, you will have nothing less than 32 different variants that you can buy from now on official website. The base version will cost $ 25, while the version with WiFi, 8GB of RAM and 32GB flash will cost about $ 90.
Of course, in addition to this Compute Module, Raspberry Pi has also announced its new board IO Board for $ 35. That is, the motherboard on which the Compute Module 4 can be added, in addition to having 2x HDMI ports, Gigabit Ethernt (RJ-45), 2x USB, microSD slot, PCIe slot, and 40 GPIO pins, camera connector and screen, as well as the 12v power connector.
