The Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 (CM4) is a powerful and flexible single-board computer that can be used in a wide range of applications. To add value to the CM4 module, you can consider incorporating various hardware and software enhancements, depending on the target use case. Here are some ideas for how we can help you:
Develop a custom carrier board that expands the CM4's capabilities with additional peripherals such as sensors, connectors, display interfaces, camera interfaces, etc. This enables the module to be tailored to specific applications.
Enhance the CM4's capabilities by integrating a dedicated image processor, neural processing unit (NPU), or hardware accelerator for AI inference tasks. This opens up possibilities for computer vision and artificial intelligence applications.
Implement intelligent power management circuits to optimize power consumption and enhance energy efficiency in battery-operated applications.
Offer software development kits (SDKs), libraries, and pre-configured OS images that streamline application development and deployment.
Integrate IoT connectivity options such as built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, or LoRa modules, allowing the CM4 to communicate with other IoT devices or cloud services seamlessly.
Incorporate an RTC chip to enable the CM4 to keep track of time even when powered off, making it suitable for time-sensitive applications.
Add audio inputs and outputs, enabling the CM4 to be used in applications involving audio processing or voice-based interactions.
Integrate hardware-based security features like Trusted Platform Module (TPM) or Secure Element (SE) to enhance the module's security and protect sensitive data.
Add support for industrial communication protocols such as RS-232, RS-485, Modbus, CAN bus, etc., which are commonly used in industrial automation and control applications.
Offer options for expanding the CM4's storage capacity, such as NVMe SSD support or additional microSD card slots.
Provide custom enclosures and cooling solutions to protect the CM4 and ensure optimal thermal performance.
Develop cloud-based services or connectors that enable seamless integration of the CM4 with popular cloud platforms, facilitating data storage, analytics, and remote management.
