PiGear Nano is a high performance Nano–ITX (12x12cm) carrier board for Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4. PiGear Nano is mainly designed for industrial applications, but you can also use it as office computer, family media center, gaming console etc.
PiGear Nano works with all models of Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 (with or without eMMC).
You may order the black case kit with the board together.
You may also order the board with a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 together. If you don’t want to assemble them by yourself, you can also order the fully assembled computer.

To install PiGear Nano’s software, please run this command in your home directory:
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ wget https://www.uugear.com/repo/PiGearNano/installPiGearNano.sh
If your Raspberry Pi has internet connection, it will immediately download the script from our website, and you will then see the “install.sh” script in your home directory. Then you just need to this script with with sudo:
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo sh installPiGearNano.sh
You will need to use sudo to run this script because it also tries to modify the /boot/config.txt file (will make backup first). The software will be installed in the “pgnano” directory and also UUGear Web Interface (UWI) will be installed/updated to “uwi” directory.
After installing the software, you need to restart your Raspberry Pi, so the UWI server will be running in the background. With default configuration you should be able to access your PiGearNano via UWI on address http://raspberrypi:8000/pgnano/. If your Raspberry Pi does not use raspberrypi host name, or this hostname is not resolvable in your network environment, you need to modify the uwi.conf file in “uwi” directory to include the real IP address of your Raspberry Pi.
Each package of PiGear Nano contains:
- PiGear Nano board x 1
- 6x6x5 heat sink x 1 (for VL805 chip on the back of the board)
- M3x8 metal standoff x 4
- M3 screws x 4
- M2 screws x 3
- 2.54–2P jumper cap x 5
