The Raspberry Pi Foundation has just announced the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4. The new board is available starting at $25 with prices increasing to $90 depending on the customisations you make. Alongside the Compute Module 4, the Compute Module 4 IO Board is available for $35 and the Compute Module 4 Antenna Kit is also available for those who need it.

If you like to customise products before buying them, you’ll love the Raspberry Pi Computer Module 4. With four RAM options, four Flash options, and optional wireless connectivity, there are a total of 32 variants of the new product. Even when fitted with 8GB RAM, 32GB Flash, and wireless, the new product will only cost $90, which is still affordable.

The main specifications for the new Compute Module 4 are as follows:

  • 1.5GHz quad-core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A72 CPU
  • VideoCore VI graphics, supporting OpenGL ES 3.x
  • 4K60 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

With the new IO Board, you’ll get a ready-made development platform that accepts standard connectors. The Raspberry Pi Foundation said that the IO Board can also act as a starting point for those looking to build their own designs. With the Compute Module 4 IO Board, you’ll get the following:

  • Two full-size HDMI ports
  • Gigabit Ethernet jack
  • Two USB 2.0 ports
  • MicroSD card socket (only for use with Lite, no-eMMC Compute Module 4 variants)
  • PCI Express Gen 2 x1 socket
  • HAT footprint with 40-pin GPIO connector and PoE header
  • 12V input via barrel jack (supports up to 26V if PCIe unused)
  • Camera and display FPC connectors
  • Real-time clock with battery backup

The new Compute Module 4 and its complementary devices are available for purchase now through different partners all linked on the main Raspberry Pi website.
