We are pleased to announce the next generation of our very popular Raspberry Pi Panel PCs: The ComfilePi CPi-S070WR. It is built around the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4S and provides much needed relief for the shortage of Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+ affecting the CPi-A/B panel PCs.
The CPi-S070WR has feature parity with the CPi-A/B panel PCs, making it a new perfect drop-in replacement for the CPi-A/B070WR, but boasts a faster SoC (1.5GHz, the same silicon as the Compute Module 4), and a larger, externally exposed heatsink like that of the CPi-B070WR for improved thermal performance.
Also, due to the Compute Module 4's new bootloader, the CPi-S070WR can be booted from a USB drive out of the box. which enables new, interesting use cases. See this demonstration video for more details.
Because the CPi-S070WR has the same features as the CPi-A/B070WR, it is also compatible with all of our CPi-A/B IO accessory boards.
The CPi-S070WR inherits the CPi-A/B's UL listing, and also extends the production life of the ComfilePi panel PCs out to at least January 2031.
Migrating from the CPi-A/B to the CPi-S will require a new OS or a firmware update. See our migration documentation, and let us know if you have any questions.
