    Note: This page offers a few options for the Raspberry Pad 5 - the CM4 carrier board with a 5-inch IPS Capacitive Touch Screen, with Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 - built-in wireless: WiFi and Bluetooth, 8GB RAM, and 32GB eMMC. Please choose the preferred option:


    Note: The Official Power Supply Unit (PSU) will be either in Black or White Color depending on availability.

    Compute Module 4 is officially launched on 19th October 2020 with the same or better spec, and there are 32 variants of the module to choose from. This product page lists Compute Module 4 which comes WITH Wireless (WiFi and Bluetooth), 8GB RAM, and 32GB eMMC.


    We have included the Raspberry Pad 5 - A CM4 carrier board with 5-inch IPS Capacitive Touch Display in this kit. This special carrier board enables you to get started with the Raspberry Pi CM4.


    A CM4 Carrier Board with 5-inch IPS 800x400 Capacitive Touch Screen



    This is a very comprehensive and compact carrier board for Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4, it supports both the Lite version (without onboard eMMC) and with eMMC of CM4. Not to forget the wireless and non-wireless versions of CM4, as it comes with a Gigabit Ethernet port. The best integration is the 5 inches Capacitive touch IPS screen! Your CM4 will not need another LCD monitor :)

    Note: The 40-pin GPIO headers are FEMALE on the Raspberry Pad 5 board.


    Check out the review by ETA Prime on this CM4 carrier board with screen:


    5-inch IPS, 800 x 480, Multi-point Capacitive Touch Screen

    The only CM4 carrier board that is ready with a 5-inch HD Touch Screen! It is perfect for Human Machine Interface development such as Octoprint with touch UI. It also comes with screen control buttons for backlight and orientation (180º rotation). of course, with IPS display offers true color and a wide view angle.

    Note: The 5-inch screen graphic interfaces via DSI from CM4, it is Disabled by default on Raspberry Pi OS. You will need to enable it.

    Note: The CM4 is NOT included. Please buy it separately if necessary.


    Check out another video review by Lee from leepspvideo. He shows the mounting of CM4 with eMMC onto the Raspberry Pad 5, configures the DIP switch to burn/load the Raspberry Pi OS, enables the DSI driver and boots it up:


    Overall Diagram

    The back of the IPS screen is full of many ports, buttons, a MicroSD card slot, and a 40-pin FEMALE GPIO. This is the most comprehensive CM4 carrier board we have ever seen.

    Note: Please DO NOT pull the microSD card out of the slot when CM4 Lite (without eMMC) is operating. Do a proper shutdown, then only remove the microSD card.

    Note: Please power off the carrier board before plugging or unplugging the CM4.

    Note: USB port supports hot plugging


    Don from NovaspiritTech also did a review on this carrier board:


    Connectivity Ports

    Even with a 5-inch HD Touch Screen, this carrier board comes with essential connectivity ports:

    • 1 x Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 port
    • 3 x USB2.0
    • 1 x 15-pin CSI1 port (Camera)
    • 1 x Full-Size HDMI0 (2K resolution)
    • 1 x USB-C port (for power and OTG)


    A very detailed review by othermod on the Raspberry Pad 5:


    Compatible with ALL Variants of CM4

    You are free to choose the preferred model from 32 variations of CM4 for this board. This carrier board is compatible with all CM4 models:

    • With the microSD card slot, it supports CM4 Lite (without eMMC)
    • With an Ethernet port, it supports CM4 without built-in wireless
    • Of course, it also supports CM4 with eMMC and built-in wireless



    Additional 2K HDMI Port for Expanding Screen

    Even with a built-in touch screen, there is another option to expand to an external screen via a full-size HDMI port which supports up to 2K resolution.


    Multi-function Type-C Port

    There is a double pole slide switch and a 4 ways DIP switch that allows the USB-C to be configured to support:

    • CAN
    • Flashing CM4's eMMC
    • Normal boot


    On Board RTC

    Just add a CR1220 coin cell battery to get a real-time clock for CM4. The RTC chip is PCF8563.

    Note: A CR1220 coin cell battery is included in the kit option.


    As you might have known, due to the higher power requirements, it is best to provide at least a stable 5V 3A power supply to the Raspberry Pi CM4. The kit included the Official Raspberry Pi 5V 3A USB-C Adapter with a UK plug (type G) and is meant for the Raspberry Pi CM4 and is suitable to be used in Singapore, Malaysia, the UK, etc.

    Note: The Official Power Supply Unit (PSU) will be either in Black or White Color depending on availability.


    Fresh from the factory, CM4 with onboard eMMC does not contain any image of the Operating System, so the 1st thing after you get the new CM4 and Raspberry Pad 5, you will need to flash a suitable Operating System into the eMMC. To do that, a USB C cable is needed. The Raspberry Pad 5 includes this cable.

    From the Raspberry Pad 5 User's Manual, page 14, you need to configure both the slide switch and onboard DIP switch to load OS into the CM4's eMMC.


    And in order to get the 5-inch display/screen to work, you will need to download the DSI1 driver. Please open the terminal and type this in:

    sudo wget -O /boot/dt-blob.bin
