A new Raspberry Pi compute module has been officially launched by the Raspberry Pi town foundation team providing a small flexible form factor available with a range of storage capacities and optional wireless connectivity. Priced from just $25 the new Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 follows on from the launch of the larger Raspberry Pi 4 mini PC 16 months ago.
“Built on the same 64-bit quad-core BCM2711 application processor as Raspberry Pi 4, our Compute Module 4 delivers a step change in performance over its predecessors: faster CPU cores, better multimedia, more interfacing capabilities, and, for the first time, a choice of RAM densities and a wireless connectivity option.”
“Compute Module 4 introduces a brand new form factor, and a compatibility break with earlier Compute Modules. Where previous modules adopted the JEDEC DDR2 SODIMM mechanical standard, with I/O signals on an edge connector, we now bring I/O signals to two high-density perpendicular connectors (one for power and low-speed interfaces, and one for high-speed interfaces).”
The new Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 offers makers and developers four RAM options, four Flash options, and optional wireless connectivity, making a total of 32 variants, with prices ranging from $25 for the 1GB RAM, Lite, no wireless variant to $90 for the 8GB RAM, 32GB Flash, wireless variant.
