*Each node can connect to the system's USB 2.0 port, but only one node can do so at any given moment.


Please be aware that the Raspberry Pi CM4 does not support connections via an M.2 (NVMe) port.


Turing Pi 2 contains multiple UART pin outs that allow serial connection not only to BMC, but to each individual Node1-4 slot as well. All UART ports use 3.3V levels.

Node 1

This is part of the 40 Pin GPIO, refer to the Compute Module pinout. For example, Raspberry Pi:


Please note that there are 2 differences compared to the Raspberry Pi and the Nvidia Jetson header pinouts:

  • because the debug UART is connected to the BMC, the UART header exposed through pins 8 and 10 is an additional UART in the case of the Nvidia Jetson modules and these pins are not connected in the case of the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4
  • pin 17 is connected to the GROUND instead of 3.3V - please make sure this does not conflict with your use case for the GPIO header

Node 2-4

These pins are located on the top side of the board, near HW buttons for BMC and micro USB. They are marked with "UART2 DEBUG" 2 to 4 and are only utilized by the Nvidia Jetson modules and upcoming Turing RK1 modules (Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 does not expose the additional UART).


BMC UART pins are also located on top of the board near the hardware buttons. Since BMC is running Linux OS, you can use this serial interface to connect to it directly.

HDMI Circuit Switch

Since the HDMI output between Raspberry Pi and Nvidia Jetson compute modules is different, we have included a 4 pin switch to give you the option to switch between these two modes.

  • Raspberry Pi: 1:ON 2:OFF 3:OFF 4:ON
  • Nvidia Jetson: 1:OFF 2:ON 3:ON 4:OFF
  • RK1: 1:OFF 2:OFF 3:OFF 4:OFF

Front I/O

Front I/O pins offer similar features to standard PC motherboards with pins for:

  • Power LED
  • Status LED
  • Power Button
  • Reset Button

This allows easy integration to standard PC cases.


On Turing Pi 2 board are two physical buttons:

  • KEY1

You can use these instead of front panel I/O pins.


Toggling the "Key1" button will turn all nodes on or off.

Pressing the "Key1" button when one or more modules are on will turn off all modules. But long-pressing the button will turn on the remaining nodes.


Located on the corner of the board is a push button labeled BMC_RESET. Pressing this button will hard reset the BMC. This button is intended as a last resort in case your BMC froze or is not responding anymore. Consequently, you likely will lose any recent changes as the BMC does not have time to flush its filesystem buffers.
