The Compute Module Development Kit contains the following components:
1 x Raspberry Pi Compute Module IO Board
This is the main development kit IO board into which the Compute Module SODIMM board is connected. It also contains all of the necessary interface ports to allow an engineer to design and test their own prototype application.
The IO board contains the following interfaces:
- Multiple GPIO interfaces
- 1 x micro USB connector type B
- 1 x USB connector type A
- 2 x CSI ports for camera boards
- 2 x DSI ports for display boards
- Full size HDMI port
- Micro USB power connector
- Certified to FCC Class B and contains a socket to connect the Compute Module
The schematics and board design files for the Compute Module IO board have been published by the Raspberry Pi Foundation and detail the interconnection between the SODIMM socket and the interfaces on the IO board.
1 x Raspberry Pi Compute Module
Compute Module contains the following components contained within a 200 pin SODIMM design:
- Broadcom BCM2835 CPU 700MHz
- 512MB RAM
- 4GB eMMC flash ram
This module simplifies the design process engineers need to undertake when developing a SoM solution into their final product. Engineers do not need to concern themselves with the complexities of interfacing with the BCM2835 processer directly and instead can concentrate on designing the interfaces to their own IO board and their application software . This simplicity fosters rapid development.
1 x Raspberry Pi Display & Camera Adapter
These adapters are used to connect a standard Raspberry Pi camera board or Raspberry Pi display to the Compute Module IO Board. There is one display and one camera adapter provided within the kit.
1 x 5V Micro USB Power Supply
This is used to power the Compute Module IO Board
1 x Micro USB Interface
This is provided to allow you to flash an operating system onto the 4GB eMMC flash memory within the Compute Module. (It is recommended that you use a Raspberry Pi Model B to re-flash the software on the chip)
4 x Jumper Wires
These are provided to jumper the control of the Camera interface or Display interface into the GPIO banks so they can be accessed.
