Altium or Eagle File for Compute IO

Mon Aug 04, 2014 5:20 pm

I was wondering if there was a publicly available Eagle or Altium file for the Compute IO module? One that already has the GPIO and other various pins labeled for easy development. My apologies if this is already in an easy to find location, I am new to the PCB design world and am not very good at locating these things

Hi All,

After the premature dead of Odroid W (which was a smaller Raspi alternative)
I would like to use Raspi CM (which I wanted to use before but did not have the skills to design a smaller IO Board)

The problem with CM is that it is not usable for small business or individuals without a CM IO Board. However the CM IO Board is HUGE!
So I would like to create a smaller CM IO. Is there anything in the market available already?

If not. Would the Foundation release the pcb and sch files (not the pdfs!) for people to design and modify CM IO board schematics?
I can assume and understand not releasing the CM schematics files but for the CM IO... I think it would help a lot of people and will encourage the community to use the CM.

DevKits always are, in order to expose all of the available features ;)

Well there's http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewt ... 98&t=80708 which is currently still being developed, and there's also https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ge ... mpute-modu which may be "too big" for you (and failed to reach funding anyway).

In case it's not already obvious, the CM was designed for large industrial companies (who have the skills and resources to design it into their own products), and not really for individuals.

I should have my Compute Module Dev Kit next week, I just received the tracking number this morning :-)

I am considering developing some products around the CM module.

p.s.

I also offer PCB design services for custom boards
