The developers of the Raspberry Pi project has announced the immediate availability of improved Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+ (CM3+), which is a portable version of the Raspberry Pi 3 furnished in form-factor memory modules for notebook (DDR2 SODIMM, size 67.6 x 30 mm) and is compatible with the previously released boards I/o (Compute Module IO Board).
Compute Module 3+ includes 64-bit SoC BCM2837B0 (ARMv8, Quad-core, 1.4 Ghz), identical with the Raspberry Pi 3 B+. As in the previous model, the RAM size is 1 GB, but the size of the Flash is increased from 4 to 8 GB and also provided options with 16 and 32 GB Flash. A connector to connect the identical memory slots in laptops. In addition to upgrading the SoC in the new Board improved temperature management. When the temperature of the chip to 70° set the frequency of 1.4 GHz, but if the temperature exceeds 70° the frequency is reduced to 1.2 GHz and also reduced is supplied to the chip voltage, which minimizes the temperature cutoff (80°). Working temperature range expanded and now ranges from -20°C to 70°C.
The Board comes in two versions: the Lite version with a slot for a SD card and the full version chip and eMMC Flash memory. The cost of the Compute Module 3+ with 8 GB of Flash is $ 30 (16 GB – $35, 32GB – $40), the Lite version is $ 25. Circuits and desoldering circuit boards is available under a free license. The operating system Raspbian is proposed.
Compute Module difficult to use without special boards, input/output, but the module is designed primarily not for separate use, and to simplify the integration technology of Raspberry Pi with various products and for creating specialized multimedia and industrial embedded systems. Through contacts SODIMM is powered-up, removed USB ports, two HDMI port for connecting screens and two ports for connecting cameras, which allows the use of cost, including for integration with 3D TVs. For example, the support computation modules Raspberry Pi is already implemented in large-format monitors from NEC, via which the connection of these circuit boards can be turned into a self-sufficient multimedia system.
