Raspberry Pi Compute Module Board, The Computer Modules Is Of Age Meet The Real Cutting: If we were to pick a pivotal time in our community’s history, we’d go with February 29th, 2012. On that particular day, a small Cambridge business released the first batch of its new product onto the market.
The company was the Raspberry Pi Foundation, and the product was a 10,000-unit run of the Raspberry Pi Model B, the company’s first single board computer.
However, even though it wasn’t the first board to be able to run Linux from an SD card, the BCM2835 SoC and 512 MB of memory made it the most affordable.

WHERE WOULD YOU BE IF CASUALTIES DIDN’T EXIST?
It’s difficult to innovate on a highly popular product line. When you have so many competitors and knockoffs on your heels.
There have been periods when its competitors have created better hardware than the current Pi. But they do so without Cambridge’s ace in the hole.
The Raspberry Pi OS board, which has a devoted Linux community behind it. A powerful board combined with an operating system that is easy to use still makes the Pi the best choice after all these years.
Despite this, the Pi is still a Pi with the same interfaces and PCB as when the original Model B was upgraded to a 40-pin header and four USB ports for the first time.
It was. What you do to for making it better without breaking compatibility with projects that have been around for decades? In terms of future Pi 5 R&D, we have no inside information.
But we’d like to put forth the hypothesis that the Pi team have already done so, and with a Raspberry Pi. Not the adorable Raspberry Pi 400 all-in-one
But the Compute Module 4, the Pi 4’s stripped-down sister. Say hello to Raspberry Pi’s new cutting edge, which is where we believe the platform’s most exciting hardware advances are now located.
SPIN YOUR OWN PI IN A MULTITUDE OF WAYS
Composing a complex PCB can be intimidating. For those who are not in the business of making them on a daily basis. Our first CM4 project from [Timonsku] proves that this is not the case.
Full-size HDMI, USB-A, and C ports, and a microSD card are all included in the compact CM4 carrier board. It’s a simple specification, but the PCB is what makes it stand out.
You can make your own CM4 carrier by using a PCB router and milling a single-sided design. Anyone can set up a Raspberry Pi in a matter of minutes.
The Piunora, a CM4 carrier with an Arduino footprint, was also created by [Timonsku], who hasn’t rested on his laurels.
Like [Arturo182smallest ]’s CM4 carrier board, but not nearly as simple to make. To keep things simple, it uses only one CM4 connector and exposes only the UART, I2C, and SPI ports.
On-board storage is required for this, but even with this limited set of ports, it has a lot of potential.
Ultra- Portable Network
Keep things simple with [Kamil Lorenc’s] uCM4, a board the same size as a CM4 that’s designed to be an ultra-portable network powerhouse.
Only the micro USB power and USB2 ports and a microSD slot for a boot disc are included in this device. Together with the Ethernet port.
For example, if USB-OTG capability is added. It may turn into a tiny network that can be accessed from a mobile device.
When discussing network peripherals, the [mebs] CM4 NAS is worth mentioning. In addition to simple NAS devices. The PCIe slot holds a SATA card, making this a more advanced version of the concept.
This gives Pi-based NAS devices a fighting chance against more traditional ones, as the USB3 on the Pi 3 provides speed but not much flexibility.
