The Nano Base Board A from Waveshare is a simple, affordable way to evaluate the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4, breaking out key functionality whilst maintaining a compact and low-profile footprint - the same size as the CM4 itself!

This board allows you to power your CM4 via USB-C whilst also providing a USB port, CSI camera connector, SD card slot, GPIo breakout, boot switch and indication LEDs. 

We also stock the Nano Base Board (B) which offers more functionality (but costs a little more).

Note: the GPIO header is packed with the board separately and will require soldering!


The Base Board A is the same overall size as the CM4 module yet offers a host of useful features:

  • 40-pin GPIO breakout
  • Male colour-coded GPIO pins (packaged separately - requires soldering)
  • USB-C 5V power port
  • Camera CSI port
  • MicroSD card socket for CM4 Lite variants
  • 1x USB 2.0 port
  • Boot switch
  • Power indication LED
  • Activity Indication LED
  • Dimensions: 55mm x 40mm
