OK, a little later than I was hoping but I finally found some time to take some photos of the Raspberry Pi Compute Module.
Saturday’s postman delivered my first RPi Compute Modules and IO board.
I didn’t have much time to do any thing with it except marvel at compact it is.
I hope to take some pictures in the next day or two and post them.
I’ve some cool ideas for what I’m going to make with it so pop back soon.
Eh? Why another prototyping board? Isn’t the CM I/O a prototyping board already?
Yes, it is. And the CMIO ProtoBoard is a prototyping board for you to build circuits directly on with can be used with the CM I/O board and Compute Module.
Same as blinking an LED is the first code you write for a new embedded system, designing a prototyping board is often the first thing I do with every new system I work with.
Why, I hear you ask?
Some of the dimensions and connector positions I’ve had to guess at but here’s a quick layout of what I’ve done so far:
