Say “Hi” To the New Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4!

Thanks to your support our previous board, the StereoPi v1, was brought to life. Today we are thrilled to introduce an updated version!

Thanks to the newest Compute Module 4, we have a bunch of new features to introduce:

More Power

With the new SoC module from Broadcom, you have up to twice the speed in your OpenCV Computer Vision and DNN applications! And the fast DDR4 memory will add more speed to your memory-intensive applications (e.g. video capture and processing)

Wi-Fi Onboard

Fast two-band Wi-Fi! No more USB dongle – you have a tested solution with brilliant drivers. Working as both an Access Point and Client, this option gives you more freedom on your wireless connectivity.

Hey, drone makers! Did you know you can use an external antenna now? This is a big deal for your long-range FPV solutions (like WiFibroadcast, OpenHD, etc.)! Choose an appropriate antenna to get the working range you need. Ah, and maybe WiFi boosters… You know what we mean, right?

Bluetooth 5.0, BLE

All your project ideas for Bluetooth remote control can come true!

Advanced Wireless Management

Using the new CM4 wireless management features, you can physically power down your WiFi or Bluetooth through the software! Thanks to multifunctional GPIOs, introduced with the CM4, you can both power on/ off onboard wireless devices, and indicate their status by LED. We added BT and WiFi LEDs on board for your convenience, so you can monitor the wireless status!

Gigabit Ethernet!

Thanks to the dedicated 1Gbit ethernet on the new Compute Module 4, there is no more compromise between the USB speed and Ethernet bandwidth!

Extremely Fast eMMC Memory

If you are planning to use the StereoPi in industrial solutions, you can choose the eMMC equipped Compute Module 4. This fast and reliable storage is available with 8, 16, or 32Gb options!

New Key Features:

Friendly Powering Method

You can now power the Stereo Pi v2 the same way as the Raspberry Pi 4! Just connect the USB-C power cable and it works! Unlike the StereoPi V1 micro-USB connector, the USB-C connector on this new edition supports regular powering.

Power Over Ethernet - PoE

The optional PoE HAT allows you to power StereoPi 2 over Ethernet.

Configurable Power Switch Option

To give you more flexibility with the enclosure design, two pins have been added on the board. You can now use an external switch that you can place anywhere to fit your design! No need to worry about the peak current your switch can handle! A new power management chip, able to commutate up to 4A current, will allow you to use tiny switches intended for an extremely low load!

Hello, Camera Hackers!

For advanced users, we put all I2C camera lines on the board with 0 resistors gaps. This means you can use all the I2C you need for your special sensors. By physically connecting them to the appropriate GPIOs, you have hidden “dev board” features on the StereoPi v2. In addition to I2C, we pulled some other lines too.

StereoPi’s Best Remaining Features

  • Native stereoscopic mode – supported by Raspberry OS since 2014.
  • Full Raspberry OS compatibility out-of-the-box
  • Standard 65mm distance between the camera connectors
  • Two USB A connectors and one 4-pin male USB header on board
  • Open source!

New Tutorials Are Coming!

  • Updated S.L.P. Raspberry OS image with the VR features support
  • Oculus Quest application and remote RC vehicle control
  • New AR experiments
  • OpenCV point cloud tutorial with the real-world coordinate calculation
  • HQ camera stereoscopic metal housing
  • Compact stereoscopic camera with the tiny TFT IPS screen assembly

Field Testing

We found a great screen (2", IPS) for the upcoming StereoPi v2 camera kit, and did some field tests. Cute thing!
