The Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 Development Kit contains the following components:

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 on 2 60 way 0.1” Headers
  • 1 x Micro USB connector type B – USB Slave
  • 1 x USB connector type A – USB Host
  • 2 x CSI ports for camera boards
  • 2 x DSI ports for display boards
  • Full size HDMI port
  • Micro USB power connector
  • Micro SD connector

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. These can be found at:

The Raspberry Pi Compute Modules

The modules simplify the design process engineers need to undertake when developing a System on Module (SoM) solution into their final product. Engineers do not need to concern themselves with the complexities of interfacing with the BCM2837 processer directly and instead can concentrate on designing the interfaces to their own IO board and their application software . This simplicity fosters rapid development.

Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3
The Compute Module 3 contains the following components contained within a 200 pin SODIMM design:

  • Broadcom BCM2837 processor
  • 1Gbyte LPDDR2 RAM
  • 4Gbytes eMMC Flash
  • 35u hard gold plated IO Pins

Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 Lite
The Compute Module 3 Lite product is the same as the Compute Module 3 except the eMMC Flash is not fitted, and the SD/eMMC interface pins are available for the user to connect their own SD/eMMC device The Compute Module 3 Lite contains the following components contained within a 200 pin SODIMM design:

  • Broadcom BCM2837 processor
  • 1Gbyte LPDDR2 RAM
  • 35u hard gold plated IO Pins

(N.B. when operating with the IO Board, an SD card with a suitable image must be connected to the IO board for the system to work)


  • ARMv7 Instruction Set
  • Mature and stable Linux software stack
    • Latest Linux Kernel support
    • Many drivers upstreamed
    • Stable and well support user environment
    • Full availability of GPU functions using standard APIs

Raspberry Pi Compute Module IO Board Camera Display Adaptor
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.

Power Supply 5v 2.5A
This is used to power the Compute Module IO Board

USB A to micro B Cable
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 3 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.
