DevTerm is a sequence of transportable pc kits from ClockworkPi that resembles the RadioShack / Tandy TRS-80 Mannequin 100 transportable computer systems of the Eighties. With huge chunky keys, a large, but brief, show and a thermal printer, these kits begin from $219 for a mannequin powered by the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 with an extra 4 fashions utilizing customized “core modules” offering extra highly effective Arm processors.
DevTerm might look retro, however underneath the hood we now have twenty first century know-how. With a ClockworkPi v3.14 mainboard designed to make use of SO-DIMM Pc on Module (CoM) boards, such because the Raspberry Pi Compute Module or different CoM boards, proper now there are 5 supported CoMs.
May the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 be used with an adaptor such as those from Gumstix? We do hope so. Presently, the selection of CoM consists of boards from the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 1GB RAM and a quad-core Arm Cortex A53 CPU working at a1.2 GHz clock speed to a 1.8 GHz hexa-core chip with 4GB of RAM. The mannequin that includes the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 is the bottom priced possibility.

- CPI v3.14 mainboard makes use of a compact design, the scale is decreased to three.7 x 3 inches (95x77mm)
- PMU chip that helps dependable and full lithium battery cost and discharge administration
- Built-in 5G-WIFI (802.11ac), plus Bluetooth 5.0
- Excessive-gain antenna
- 3x USB-A 2.0 interface and an inside contact interface for the Keyboard module
- USB-C charging port
- TF card (MicroSD card) slot
- 40 Pins MIPI display interface
- MicroHDMI interface
- 3.5mm headphone/microphone jack
- Onboard stereo audio energy amplifier chip
- 40 Pins GPIOs growth interface (utilizing customary 0.5mm FPC connector)
- 52 Pins extension module interface (utilizing customary Mini PCI-E connector) for the “EXT. module”
- Commonplace DDR2-SODIMM 200 Pins interface: connects CPI v3.14 to the “Core module”
The mainboard options USB-A and USB-C ports, microHDMI and modular connections for the keyboard, display and battery. A slot to the left of the mainboard, which is a mini PCIe connector, is used with an “EXT module” to supply a cooling fan, digital camera interface, GPIO interface and extra USB ports.
Transport is predicted to start out in April 2021.
