Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 (CM4)
For Raspberry Pi aficionados, today was a big day - the CM4 dropped.
The thing that really caught my eye - On-board Gigabit Ethernet! Even WiFi support with external antenna!
Some of you know I've been working on an AllStar Raspberry Pi hat. I've made some good progress but the real gotcha is, I would have to fork AllStar or HamVoIP to support an I2C audio device tree overlay since "standard" Pis don't expose USB via the IO pins to use the normal AllStar supported CM108/CM119 USB audio chips.
I'm not really interested in building/supporting a new AllStar distro.
This new CM4 solves all my issues and could run stock AllStar or HamVoIP with a CM119 chip. As soon as I can get my hands on some CM4s, I'm going to pivot this direction.
Stay tuned! AB0L.
