Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+ even easier to use

28 January 2019

Premier Farnell is now shipping the new Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+, with enhanced features and memory, for same day dispatch.

Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+ delivers the enhanced thermal performance and ease of use of Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ in a smaller form factor, with a choice of memory variants suitable for a broad range of embedded applications including IoT devices and industrial automation, monitoring and control systems.

Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+ is based on the Broadcom BCM2837B0 64-bit application processor running at 1.2GHz, with 1GB LPDDR2 SDRAM. Developers can now choose between 8GB, 16GB & 32GB eMMC flash variants and a ‘Lite’ variant, with no eMMC flash, to match their storage requirements.

“Customers continue to tell us that it is the ease of use of the Raspberry Pi that makes it so attractive to them when choosing a development board. Over a third of our Raspberry Pi customers are using the board for professional use.” says Hari Kalyanaraman, Global Head of SBC and Emerging Business at Premier Farnell. 

“This new version of the popular Raspberry Pi Compute Module delivers on ease of use, as well as providing enhanced thermal performance and increased flexibility through multiple memory variants. Developers no longer need to customise their board if they need additional memory, and can get their products to market faster than ever before.”

Eben Upton, CEO of Raspberry Pi Trading said “With today’s launch of Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+, we are able to offer a full range of single-board-computer and system-on-module products based on the latest high-performance Broadcom BCM2837B0 device. Suitable for both makers and professional engineers, Compute Module 3+ offers improved thermal performance, a wider supported ambient temperature range, more storage options, and access to Raspberry Pi’s world-leading community and software ecosystem.”

Highlights of Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+ include:

• Processor: Broadcom BCM2837B0 SoC, with quad-core Cortex-A53 64-bit @ 1.2GHz.
• Multimedia: H.264 and MPEG-4 decode (1080p30); H.264 encode (1080p30); OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics.
• SD card support: CM3+/Lite brings the SD card interface to the module pins allowing the user to connect either an external eMMC device or SD card.
• Environment: Ambient temperature of -20 to +70°C.

Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+ will remain in production until at least January 2024.
Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+ is available to buy as a standalone board or as a development kit including a Raspberry Pi Compute Module I/O board, Raspberry Pi CM3+/32GB module, Raspberry Pi CM3+/Lite module, and display and camera adapters.
