It's been a busy start to the year on my Raspberry Pi PCIe Devices website. Not only have we finally made some significant progress learning about the BCM2711's PCIe bus (both good and bad), I've also added a few dozen new Raspberry Pi CM4-based boards to the site.
In my YouTube video today, I go through four of them in depth, showing how they're built and what they're used for.
The four projects I cover in depth are:
- Bigtreetech's Raspberry Pad 5
- Seeed Studio's reTerminal
- Waveshare's Dual Ethernet 5G/4G base board
- Ab-log's RPi4-RTC-PoE DIN rail computer
And there are some other projects I'm watching closely as they journey down the road towards production:
- Kincony's KC868 Home Automation Server
- The Pockit
- MNT Reform's RCM4 Compute Adapter
- The PSPi Portable
I will be diving deeper into the Waveshare Dual Ethernet 5G/4G base board later this year as I work on building a mobile OpenWRT router for 4G LTE backup Internet, to see how closely I can compete with a commercial product like a Cradlepoint for half the price.
