The DevTerm Kit is, as its name suggests, a kit project. The mini-PC features integrated input devices, a display and comes in multiple versions. However, the version of most interest to us is the RPI-CM3 series, which ClockworkPi has built using the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 (CM3).
The CM3 communicates with a ClockworkPi v3.14 mainboard that controls a 6.8-inch IPS panel (1,280 x 480) and a 65% keyboard with a mini trackball, gamepad buttons and gamepad arrow keys. Additionally, the DevTerm Kit supports a thermal printer, underlining its retro qualities. Moreover, the DevTerm Kit can run off 18650 batteries. ClockworkPi stresses that it will not include 18650 batteries with orders.
ClockworkPi is accepting pre-orders now though, which it aims to fulfil before April 2021. The DevTerm Kit RPI-CM3 costs US$219. ClockworkPi has put together an extensive webpage about the capabilities of the DevTerm Kit, too.
