Surprise Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 Announced

Update 10/19/2020 02:21 PT: We’ve added information about the PCIe interface and GPIO for the Compute Module 4 IO Board.

October 19, and the Raspberry Pi team have announced another version of their Compute Module range of boards. Powered by the same System on Chip (SoC) as the Raspberry Pi 4 and introducing a new form factor, the Compute Module 4 comes in a whopping 32 variants. The Compute Module 4 now becomes the most powerful Compute Module in their range and starting from just $25.

  • 1.5GHz quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A72 CPU
  • VideoCore VI graphics, supporting OpenGL ES 3.x
  • 4Kp60 hardware decode of H.265 (HEVC) video
  • 1080p60 hardware decode, and 1080p30 hardware encode of H.264 (AVC) video
  • Dual HDMI interfaces, at resolutions up to 4K
  • Single-lane PCI Express 2.0 interface
  • Dual MIPI DSI display, and dual MIPI CSI-2 camera interfaces
  • 1GB, 2GB, 4GB or 8GB LPDDR4-3200 SDRAM
  • Optional 8GB, 16GB or 32GB eMMC Flash storage
  • Optional 2.4GHz and 5GHz IEEE 802.11b/g/n/ac wireless LAN and Bluetooth 5.0
  • Gigabit Ethernet PHY with IEEE 1588 support
  • 28 GPIO pins, with up to 6 × UART, 6 × I2C and 5 × SPI

The Compute Module 4 does away with the SODIMM form factor found in previous models in favor of a smaller board measuring just 2.1 x 1.5 inches (55 x 40 mm).
There are 32 variants of the Compute Module, ranging from $25 for a Lite version with no onboard storage and just 1GB of RAM to $90 for 32GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. The Compute Module 4 is the first time ever there are versions of the Compute Module with WiFi (2.4 and 5GHz) and Bluetooth. An external antenna kit is also available for projects encased in a metal case, or where extra help is needed to obtain a connection.
