Raspberry Pi’s Compute Module 3, a PC on a stick meant for use by manufacturers and power users.
The latest computing board from Raspberry Pi comes with the latest Compute Module 3, said to be ten times (10x) more powerful than the first Compute Module. This computer on a stick is not meant for students or casual users as it is usually the case with most Raspberry Pi PCs. The Compute Module 3 is tailor-made to cater the advance needs of manufacturers, prototypers, and power users.
It even has the hardware backbone to keep up with the advanced demand of power users. It comes with 1.2GHz Broadcom chip, 1GB RAM (twice the amount of the original RAM) and the storage space is upgradable.
As a testimony to Compute Module 3 advanced computing power, Raspberry Pi says NES used their device in their latest signage and presentation monitor shown below. That should give you an idea of who Raspberry Pi is targeting with its Compute Module 3, PC-on-a-stick.
As you can see in the picture above, the Compute Module 3 fits on standard DDR2 SODIMM form factors, thus making it …read more
