The Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 (CM4) is a fantastic little board and a half-sibling of the Raspberry Pi 4 family that we talked about last week.
And last year, we published an article about the basics of the Compute Module 4 here. But so much has happened in the past year and a half, so we wanted to talk about the Compute Module 4 and everything you can do with it in 2023.
After all, Compute Modules are designed for people who want to make their own customized printed circuit board. And Raspberry Pi also produce official IO boards to help you get started in that endeavor!
A lot of people have written them off for makers and enthusiasts. They say things like, “Ahhh, Compute Modules are just for industry.” And that’s a reasonable take, of course, because makers and enthusiasts aren’t always making their own printed circuit boards.
But in this article I want to make the case that there’s still a lot that YOU can do with a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4.
