UPDATE 22.10.20: ModBerry 500 with Compute Module 4 available for pre-order
TECHBASE’s ModBerry industrial computer series has received an update to Compute Module 4 and is available for pre-orders. TECHBASE is leading manufacturer of Industrial Raspberry Pi and Industrial Compute Module solutions. ModBerry 500 series is fully compatible with all releases of Compute Module from Rasbperry Pi foundation.
Main features of updated device are:
- up to 4x faster eMMC Flash with up to 32GB storage
- up to 2x faster performance of CPU apllications than previous CM3 version
- up to 8x more RAM (8GB LPDDR4)
- optional 1Gbit Ethernet interface
- optional PCIe card support for NVMe SSD drive (via M.2)
- optional second PCIe support for wireless modem solutions
First orders will be ready with subject to the availability of the CM4 module itself.
Update on Raspberry Pi’s Compute Module 4 features [15.10.2020]
According to latest leaks about Compute Module 4 specifiaction and features we can be more than sure that:
- New Compute Module will feature Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on-board! Raspberry Pi Compute Module series will probably include versions with and without these modems to provide modules for variety of industrial applications.
- PCI-Express line will be available externally to enable extension support via PCIe
- Ethernet support will be enabled, most probably 1Gbps, since it is a standard in latest Raspberry Pi 4B.
- 5x UART will be available to Compute Module 4 users
Compute Module 4 predictions
Possible Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 specification
- Broadcom BCM2711, Quad core Cortex-A72 @ 1.5GHz will highly plausible replace previous Broadcom BCM2837B0, Cortex-A53 64-bit SoC @ 1.2GHz,
- 1GB, 2GB or 4GB LPDDR4-3200 SDRAM will become a standard options, instead of fixed 1GB LPDDR2 SDRAM,
- Current flash memory (eMMC) options: 8GB / 16GB / 32GB from CM3+ will probably stay the same,
- H.265 (4kp60 decode), H264 (1080p60 decode, 1080p30 encode) might replace outdated H.264 (1080p30),
- and OpenGL ES 3.0 graphics will replace 1.1, 2.0 versions,
- weight and factor will stay the same, to provide a possibility to upgrade current IoT applications of CM3 and CM3+
A Lite 4 version of Compute Module is to be expected too, without eMMC and probably limited SDRAM options.
Industrial device equipped with RPi Compute Module 3+
With Compute Module 3+ options from Raspberry Pi, TECHBASE upgraded our ModBerry 500/9500 industrial computers. From now on the ModBerry 500/9500 can be supported with extended eMMC, up to 32GB. Higher memory volume brings new features available for ModBerry series.
