Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+

The Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+ (CM3+) contains the guts of a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ — including a 1.2GHz Broadcom BCM2837 SoC and 1GB RAM along with up to 32GB of eMMC flash — all integrated onto a small board that fits into a standard DDR2 SODIMM connector on a carrier board. All remaining processor interfaces are available to a carrier board via the module’s edge-connector, including many more GPIOs and interfaces than are supported on a standard Raspberry Pi SBC. The module is available with 32GB, 16GB, 8GB, or 0GB of on-board eMMC. Note: the price indicated below is for the 0GB eMMC “CM3+/Lite” model.

Feb. 7, 2019 1:46pm – The Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+ module from Raspberry Pi Foundation is based on a 4-core 64-bit Broadcom BCM2837B0 backed by up to 1GB RAM.
