Seeedstudio has released a new carrier board for the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4, allowing the device to be used as a mini router. Accordingly, the accessory brings multiple physical connections to the CM4, including dual Gigabit Ethernet and USB Type-C. The Dual Gigabit Carrier Board has a built-in aluminium heatsink too, which should keep the carrier board and CM4 cool under sustained load.

Seeedstudio has started offering a new carrier board for the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 (CM4), the smallest fourth-generation device that the Pi Foundation has released to date. and a corresponding housing. The Dual Gigabit Carrier Board not only brings physical Ethernet connections to the CM4, but also three USB ports and another USB 3.0 header.

The carrier board has a microSD card too, along with a micro HDMI port for connecting the CM4 to an external monitor. Additionally, the carrier board provides access for MIPI-CSI, MIPI-DSI, I2C and SPI via an FPC connector and an external fan using a fan power connector. The 75 x 64 x 21 mm housing also has an aluminium heatsink for heat dissipation, while mounting is possible using a keyhole slot or three DIN mounting holes.

Seeedstudio will start shipping the Dual Gigabit Carrier Board from August 20 in three configurations, starting with the Carrier Board itself at US$45.00. This option does not come with a CM4 or an aluminium case, though. If you want those as well, then Seeedstudio sells a bundle for US$149.00.
