Launched the Foundation Respera Bay (Raspberry Pi), a new product called (Compute Module 4), after the organization launched Hasabha flagship mini-consumers (Raspberry Pi 4) in June 2019.
The traditional Raspberry Pi is a single-board microcomputer that includes many ports, and the Compute Module 4 features the same processor as the Raspberry Pi 4. Still, it is especially for industrial use cases.
You can build a prototype using the traditional Raspberry Pi and then order a set of Compute Modules to include in your commercial products.
“We sell 7 million Raspberry Pi computers every year, and more than half of that amount is used in industrial and commercial applications, from digital signage to process automation devices, ” Eben Upton wrote in a blog post.
(Raspberry Pi 4) and Compute Module 4 are quite similar, such as the ARM processor with VideoCore VI graphics.
The new computer represents a huge upgrade for previous Compute Module customers.
And you can get much better video performance by dealing with:
4K videos at 60 fps (H.265).
1080p videos at 60 fps (H.264).
1080p videos at 30 frames per second (H.264) standard.
You can also take advantage of the dual (HDMI) interfaces to connect up to two 4K displays at 60 frames per second.
You can also choose (Compute Module 4) with or without wireless technologies (wireless network and Bluetooth), with 1, 2, 4, or 8 GB RAM and 8, 16, or 32 GB of storage (eMMC).
There is also an eMMC model if you want to use an external eMMC or an SD card interface.
You can choose from these specifications to reduce costs on a large scale, which means there are 32 different Compute Module 4, ranging in price from $ 25 to $ 90.
The microcomputer’s shape has changed compared to previous models, which means that you need a new I / O board for the Compute Module – priced at $ 35 – to take advantage of all the interfaces and start development.
