The Cluster Triple is a step up in CPU and RAM from the Cluster HAT by using Raspberry Pi Compute Modules (CM1/CM3/CM3+).
BETA RELEASE: We're making a limited number of Cluster Triple available at an introductory price. By purchasing one of these early access BETA boards please understand you may need to reprogram the firmware (using a Raspberry Pi with a 40 pin header and the supplied cables and booting with an SD image from our site) and/or update the "clusterctrl" software as any problems are fixed.
Cluster Triple Features
The Cluster Triple is controller less, meaning all three compute modules are nodes (none of them are the controller) so it must be used with another computer (normally a Pi) to route/bridge the USB Gadget Ethernet/Serial and control the power. This is setup automatically when using the Cluster HAT controller images (based on Raspbian) on a Raspberry Pi.
The ClusterCTRL controller uses our open source firmware (building on i2c_tiny_usb which uses V-USB) running on a Microchip ATMEGA328P/PB to provide a standard I2C interface for controlling the cluster from a controller Pi.
The following are required but not provided:
For support/queries on the Cluster Triple please use the Cluster HAT forum.
We have a collection of HOWTO for the ClusterCTRL devices.
Compute modules with eMMC can be programmed directly in the Triple board without the need for additional hardware.
When using a Raspberry Pi A+/B+/2/3/3+ be aware the USB host is limited to 8 host channels so trying to use more than two Cluster Triple will not work. The Pi 4 supports up to 32 "devices".
