TOFU carrier board for the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 supports NVMe SSDs or 4G LTE network cards (among other things)

The Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4, which was released last year, has the same processor, memory, and storage options as a full-sized Raspberry Pi 4, but in a more compact card form-factor designed for use in embedded devices. Unlike larger Raspberry Pi devices, the Compute Module also supports onboard eMMC storage. But you’ll need to […]

DevTerm is an open source portable terminal with modular (and retro) design

The DevTerm is a new portable computer with a very old aesthetic. Designed to look like an old school portable terminal, this modular, open source computer features a 6.8 inch, 1280 x 480 pixel IPS display, a keyboard, and battery module plus an optional built-in thermal printer.

The CutiePi is hardly the first tablet built around one of Raspberry Pi’s tiny, low-cost computers. But it’s a pretty nifty looking addition to the category that combines an 8 inch touchscreen display with a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 Lite, a custom carrier board, and software to make the Linux-based Raspbian operating system touch-friendly. […]

NVIDIA releases Jetson AGX Xavier module for autonomous devices (robots)

NVIDIA is probably best known for making graphics cards used for gaming and video editing, but the company also designed low-power processors aimed at tablets, TV boxes, and other small gadgets a few years ago. Aside from the NVIDIA Shield Android TV box, there aren’t many devices using those chips anymore… but NVIDIA took what […]
