I am a Raspberry Pi CM4 kit with a 5 inch touch screen all-in-one machine. The PoE pin Gigabit Ethernet port supports 4K output, onboard four-way USB2.0, 5-inch touch screen, etc. The all-in-one kit is convenient for users.
1. Do not plug and unplug any device except USB and HDMI while the baseboard is working.
2. If the fan needs to be replaced, please confirm the fan voltage and then power on.
3. The USB SLAVE interface is used to burn the image and cannot be used as an OTG interface.
4. In normal use, it is necessary to provide at least 5V 2.5A power supply for CM4. Otherwise, there may be problems such as automatic shutdown, frequency reduction and so on.
5. Onboard default 4-way USB 2.0 interface.
6. Support POE pins, additional POE HAT is required if POE function is required.
7. This screen needs to add a driver to work.

- Write Image for Compute Module Boards eMMC version
- Write Image for Compute Module Boards Lite version
The USB port is disabled by default on the CM4 to save power. If you need to start, you need to add the following demo to the config.txt file:
If you use the latest Raspberry Pi OS (image after October 30, 2021) USB2.0 is OTG mode by default, CM4 will report an error:
config failed, hub doesn't have any ports! (err -19)
However, USB can still be used. If you want to remove this error, remove otg_mode=1 in [cm4] of config.txt, and add dtoverlay=dwc2, dr_mode=host (USB cannot be recognized without adding it).
Enable Screen & Camera
Use the old version (buster) system to load the configuration file and restart to identify, the new version (bullseye) system needs to add the additional modification files
Load Configuration File
When using the camera and DSI, it will occupy three I2C devices: I2C-10, I2C-11, I2C-0
Execute as follows:
wget https://www.waveshare.com/w/upload/7/75/CM4_dt_blob_Source.zip unzip -o CM4_dt_blob_Source.zip -d ./CM4_dt_blob_Source sudo chmod 777 -R CM4_dt_blob_Source cd CM4_dt_blob_Source/ sudo dtc -I dts -O dtb -o /boot/dt-blob.bin dt-blob-disp0-double_cam.dts # After execution, turn off the power and restart the CM4
Old Version (Buster)
Note: On December 2, 2021, the Raspberry Pi OS for Raspberry Pi split into two branches, the Buster branch, and the Bullseye branch.
The Buster branch is a continuation of the old system and is more stable. The Bullseye branch adds some new features and uses open-source libraries and new interfaces.
If you are using the Buster branch of the system
The camera needs to run raspi-config, select Interfacing Options->Camera->Yes->Finish-Yes, reboot the system, open the enable camera, and then restart to save the changes.
After loading the above bin file and restarting, the image can be output directly
View the first connected camera screen:
sudo raspivid -t 0 -cs 0
View the picture of the second camera connected:
sudo raspivid -t 0 -cs 1
New Version (Bullseye)
If you are using the Bullseye branch of the system, refer to the following content
Comment the following statements in the config.txt file (the config file is located in the root directory of the TF card, namely /boot):
Add the following statement below [all]:
After saving, restart the Raspberry Pi
libcamera-hello -t 0 or libcamera-hello #The default camera model is ov5647, if you need to change it to other cameras, you can check the camera model by yourself #Add to dtoverlay=ov5647,cam1 dtoverlay=ov5647,cam0 #where ov5647 is the camera sensor model, and there are other sensors dtoverlay=ov5647,cam0 dtoverlay=imx219,cam0 dtoverlay=ov9281,cam0 dtoverlay=imx477,cam0 #then restart reboot #Other part of the command: #Check if the camera is detected libcamera-hello --list-cameras #open camera libcamera-hello --camera 0 #taking photos libcamera-jpeg -o test.jpg #You can add --camera to specify the camera

Reference Raspberry Pi Manual
- Note: Please connect the fan before turning on the power of the base board and then complete the test. Please do not connect the fan after the base board is powered on, because the fan control chip has been powered on, otherwise the chip will be burned!
- Note: Before connecting, please confirm whether the rated voltage of the fan is consistent with the voltage actually connected to the fan.
Please note that DSI and CSI are prohibited when using RTC.
I2C-10 is used by default
RTC (PCF85063a) on i2c-10, address is 0x51 (7-bit address)
FAN ( EMC2301 ) on i2c-10, address is 0x2f (7-bit address)
If you need to add it to your program instead of the kernel, you can refer to the C and Python demo reference click here
sudo nano /boot/config.txt #Add at the end dtparam=i2c_vc=on dtoverlay=i2c-rtc,pcf85063a,i2c_csi_dsi #dtoverlay=i2c-rtc,pcf85063a #Add # in front of dtparam=audio=on #dtparam=audio=on #Save and exit, restart sudo reboot
Synchronize System Clock -> Hardware Clock
sudo hwclock -w
Synchronize hardware clock -> system clock
sudo hwclock -s #Need to close the network, or close the network time, otherwise it will be changed back
Set the hardware clock time:
sudo hwclock --set --date="9/8/2021 16:45:05"
View hardware clock
sudo hwclock -r
Display the version information
sudo hwclock --verbose
When powered on, the fan will spin for 1 second, stop for 2 seconds, and then spin again, this is a normal phenomenon.
There is currently no official configuration method for fans, there is a third-party configuration method: https://github.com/neg2led/cm4io-fan
This method is published by a third party, and we are not responsible for any problems!
This method is only available on I2C-10
mkdir -p ~/src cd ~/src git clone https://github.com/neg2led/cm4io-fan.git cd cm4io-fan sudo chmod 777 install.sh sudo ./install.sh #The following is a description of config.txt ############################# Name: cm4io-fan Info: Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 IO Board fan controller Load: dtoverlay=cm4io-fan,<param>[=<val>] Params: minrpm RPM target for the fan when the SoC is below mintemp (default 3500) maxrpm RPM target for the fan when the SoC is above maxtemp (default 5500) midtemp Temperature (in millicelcius) at which the fan begins to speed up (default 50000) midtemp_hyst Temperature delta (in millicelcius) below mintemp at which the fan will drop to minrpm (default 2000) maxtemp Temperature (in millicelcius) at which the fan will be held at maxrpm (default 70000) maxtemp_hyst Temperature delta (in millicelcius) below maxtemp at which the fan begins to slow down (default 2000) #############################
Or directly refer to the following: dtoverlay=cm4io-fan,minrpm=500,maxrpm=5000,midtemp=45000,midtemp_hyst=2000,maxtemp=50000,maxtemp_hyst=2000 The temperature is higher than 45 degrees Celsius and starts to accelerate, and the highest speed is higher than 50 degrees Celsius
Question:What should I do if the I2C address of the RTC/FAN controller cannot be searched using i2cdetect -y 10?
a) Check whether dtparam -audio - on is blocked in /boot/config.txt
