The next meeting of the RISC OS User Group Of London will be:

Waveshare IO Board
Presented by Chris Hall

Monday 19th February 2024, 7:45pm

The Duke of Sussex
(upstairs in the Chichester or Petworth Room from 6.30pm)
23 Baylis Road, London, SE1 7AY

Also online via Zoom, meeting open from 7.30pm

The focus of this month's talk from Chris Hall will be the Waveshare
Mini-B IO board, which Chris will be bringing along to the pub to
demonstrate. This board is fitted with a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4
with 4GB RAM, 16GB eMMc, a custom RTC and fan controller, a Waveshare 5V
variable speed fan and a 512GB NVMe drive. All in the footprint (approx.)
of a Pi model 4B.

At present the NVMe drive houses a Linux distro but it also has a filecore
partition for the day when RISC OS will be able to see such drives (at
present RISC OS can only see an NVMe drive if it is mounted in a USB

Chris will describe how to prepare an NVMe drive with multi-partitions on
it, and also how to build a RTC/fan board using a custom PCB. He'll also
talk about a similar board (RTC/fan) for the Pi Foundation IO board.

If the PCBs arrive in time from China, he will also bring a custom PCB for
the Desk Pi to add a RTC - without it pointing downwards so that the box
won't sit flat on the table!

Although the meeting will also be on Zoom, do join us in the pub if you
can as you will get a much better view of Chris's systems and a chance to
play with them. Plus there's food and drink on tap :-)
