- Getting started
The CM3+/Lite contains the guts of a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ (the BCM2837 processor and 1GB RAM).
- Broadcom BCM2837B0, Cortex-A53 (ARMv8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.2GHz
- 1GB LPDDR2 SDRAM
This is all integrated onto a small (67.6mm × 31mm) board that fits into a standard DDR2 SODIMM connector. The processor interfaces are available to the user via the connector pins. You get the full flexibility of the BCM2837 SoC (which means that many more GPIOs and interfaces are available than with a standard Raspberry Pi), and designing the Module into a custom system should be relatively straightforward because we’ve put all the tricky bits onto the Module itself.
To help you get started designing a PCB to use the Module, we provide an open-source breakout board, which is supplied with both a CM3+/32GB and a CM3+/Lite in an affordable development kit.
The CM3+ is also available in the following versions:
PRODUCT BRIEF, MECHANICAL DRAWINGS, AND SCHEMATICS
More detailed information on the Compute Module hardware is available.
The CM3+ will remain in production until at least January 2026.
The CM3+ has undergone extensive compliance testing, and meets the following European standards:
- Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMC) 2014/30/EU
- Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive 2011/65/EU
