The Raspberry Pi Foundation has traditionally introduced the Compute Module 4, which, for the same price, offers the same memory and processor configuration as last year’s Raspberry Pi 4, but in a more compact form factor, with full-sized ports, and support for on-board storage. eMMC and wireless as additional options.

While the Raspberry Pi 4 is a single board computer used for routine tasks for personal or corporate purposes, the Compute Module 4 is for developers looking for a compact solution for DIY projects. The dimensions of the computing module are only 55 × 40 mm. The Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 comes with a Broadcom BCM2711 quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. RAM in it can be from 1 to 8 GB, and built-in memory – from 8 to 32 GB. The manufacturer also offers a Lite version without built-in storage.

 

In case there is a need for full-sized ports, users can separately purchase an IO Board that features two HDMI 2.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet RJ45, microSD and PCIe Gen2 x1 slots, and 40-pin GPIO. Compute Module 4 is also compatible with third party boards such as Gumstix. In addition, the company offers Antenna Kit, an external wireless antenna that enables the device to operate in the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands.

Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 pricing varies by configuration and starts at $ 25. For this price, the user gets a Lite version of the device with 1 GB of RAM, no built-in storage and no wireless support. In a top-end configuration with 8 GB of RAM, 32 GB of flash memory, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, the computer will cost $ 90.
