The raspberry pie foundation today launched a new product, compute module 4. If you pay more attention to raspberry pie news, you should know that raspberry Pie 4 was released in June 2019. The compute module 4 uses the same processor, but is mainly used in industrial environments. < / P > < p > the traditional raspberry pie is a single board computer with a large number of ports, while the compute module 4 is different in that it eliminates the traditional ports and is more compact. Traditional raspberry pie mainly allows users to create various prototypes, while the compute module is embedded in commercial products to meet industrial needs. In the raspberry pie blog, Eben Upton said: “more than half of the 7 million raspberry pie devices we sell each year are used in industry and commerce, from digital signage to thin clients to process automation.”. There are some strict similarities between raspberry Pie 4 and compute module 4, such as 64 bit arm based processors with videocore VI graphics. This will be a huge upgrade for previous computing module customers. In particular, by decoding h.265 video with 4kp60 hardware decoding, H.264 video 1080p60 hardware decoding and H.264 video 1080p30 hardware encoding, you will get better video performance. You can also use the dual HDMI interface to connect up to two 4K monitors at 60 frames per second. Another major change in compute module 4 is the addition of more options. Users can choose between wireless and non wireless versions, which provide 1GB, 2GB, 4GB or 8GB memory, 8GB, 16GB or 32GB EMMC flash memory. If you want to use an external EMMC or SD card interface, there is another model without any EMMC flash memory. < / P > < p > enterprises can mix and match these compute modules 4 according to their needs, so as to reduce costs. At present, there are 32 different versions of compute module 4, which are sold from $25 to $90. Compared with the previous compute module, the overall dimensions have changed, which means that you need a new compute module IO board to take advantage of all interfaces and start development. The product is priced at $35. SpaceX beat blue origin and Northrop Grumman to win a $316 million air force contract
