Our own product PCCB: Pi Control Carrier Board

This is a quick overview of our product, PCCB (Pi Control Carrier Board). PCCB is already in a second revision with significantly expanded features.

How does it look?


What does it do?

The PCCB (Pi Control Carrier Board) is an industrial carrier board for the Raspberry Pi Compute Module. It offers several industrial interfaces, and power options.

Which compute modules are supported?

The PCCB supports Raspberry Pi Compute Modules 1 to 3 Plus – all modules currently on the market. It supports modules with Flash, and without Flash.

Feature list

industrial interfaces

  • RS232 & UART interface (not usable simultaneously)
  • RS485 interface
  • CAN Bus
  • industrial connectors for SPI, I2C, PWM, etc

standard compute interfaces

  • Ethernet 10 / 100 Mbit/s (using the Raspberry Pi SMSC / Microchip design)
  • 4 x USB 2.0 ports (via SMSC USB / Ethernet Hub)
  • Display & Camera port
  • microSD slot (for use with Compute Module 3 / 3 + Lite)

Additional features

  • DIP switches
  • built-in TPM (Infineon Optiga™ SLB 9670 TPM 2.0)
  • reset button
  • two user programmable buttons
  • three user programmable LEDs

Power options

The PCCB can be powered using two different options:

Software support & intended use

The PCCB is based on the Raspberry Pi Compute Module, as such it supports the Raspberry Pi ecosystem.

The PCCB is designed with features which industrial and business customers require.

Custom versions are possible

This version of the PCCB is a full-featured evaluation version, intended to get you started with industrial interfacing on the Raspberry Pi platform.

We are able to customize the board by omitting features – and thereby to drive down cost for very reasonable batches (100+ units).

Solid engineering & manufacturing

The PCCB is designed and manufactured in Germany, to enable Industrie 4.0 with the Raspberry Pi.

For volume designs we recommend to use a custom hardware design – we are able to support you with that at affordable prices.

Simply get in touch with us, if you are interested.
