Raspberry Pi Compute Module Release 51

First time accepted submitter ControlsGeek (156589) writes "The Raspberry Pi Foundation has developed a new product. It is basically a Raspberry Pi model A processor, memory, and flash memory on a DDR2-style SODIMM connector. Also available will be a development board that breaks out all the internal connections. The board design will be open sourced so you can develop your own devices using the BCM2835 processor. No network, but support for 2 HDMI displays and 2 cameras, so 3D TV is a possibility.

    1. SoC design work mostly done for you - you'll still need to add your own peripherals on your own board.
    2. Fully working Linux with accelerated graphics/video comes as standard
    3. It's the only way to buy the Bcm2835 in small quantities.
    4. Prototype on the very cheap Raspberry Pi.

    It's $30 in batches of 100. I'd say that's a bargain for this sort of thing and should save lower quantity embedded firms a load of money in dev time.

While money can't buy happiness, it certainly lets you choose your own form of misery.
