*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.
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
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.
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
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:
- BMC RESET
You can use these instead of front panel I/O pins.
After you plug in power to Turing Pi 2, BMC will take a few seconds to boot up
- Pressing and releasing "Key1" button for more than 1s will initialize sequential start of the Modules 1 to 4
- Pressing and holding the "Key1" button for 3s will shut down all Modules sequentially.
- Pressing "BMC Reset" button for more than 1s will currently stop all modules and restart BMC manager (you will need to press Power button again to start Modules 1 to 4)
