It is essentially a motherboard with a dimensions 67,6x30 millimeters at which they managed to compress the basic hardware to which users are accustomed with the old Raspberry, but without ports for peripherals.

 On this board you can find a standard DDR2 SODIMM connector, with which the Compute modules can be connected to another board. The device is designed primarily for enthusiasts who are planning to create their own printed circuit boards with external connectors adapted to their own needs. However, with Compute modules in the market will occur and Compute Module IO Board which is a printed circuit board provided with a place to connect the "heart" of the new Raspberry, bearing the standard ports like USB or HDMI.
