Raspberry Pi 4 Pinout Diagram and Terminals Identification


The Raspberry Pi is a very well-known small computer that operated with Linux Operating System. The Raspberry Pi 4 is an ultra-high performance board than its other versions. It is developed in 2019. It has a Cortex A72 Prcessor and 64-bit Broadcom 2711. The processor is operated with a 1.5GHz clock signal. It has two micro HMI Ports to connect the 4K displays. It uses a C-type USB port to connect the power supply. It also has a dual-channel 2.4/5.0 GHz wireless LAN system, Gigabit Ethernet Port, two number 3.0 USB ports, and supports Bluetooth 5.0.

Here, you can see the pinout diagram of Raspberry Pi 4. Here, only pins are highlighted.

You can see the Raspberry Pi 4 module has a total of 40 pins. Now, let's discuss the pin configuration.


Power Supply Pins


Power supply pins are those through which we can provide the power supply to this board or take the power supply from it. Note that the Raspberry Pi 4 works efficiently with a 5V DC supply only. Providing more voltage can burn out the board.

Power IN


To provide power to this board, it has two 5V power supply pins - pin no 2 and 4. So using any of these pins and a ground pin we can provide a power supply to this board. Although it supports two methods for power in either using these pins or through the USB type C port. The 5V pins are directly connected to the USB port. The input power supply always be stable for better performance. The USB port C is connected through the regulators and fuse but pins are bypassed or directly connected. So more safety is required when providing the power supply through pins. It has a total of 7 nos ground pins, all are connected to each other so anyone of them can be used for the negative power supply.


Power OUT


Power out means taking power from this board to the external devices. For this purpose, it has two 3.3V pins(pin no 1 and 17) and two 5V pins(pin no 2 and 6). 3.3V pins are connected through the regulator circuit, so they can provide a stable 3.3V power output. The 5V pins are also connected to the USB ports also. 

The ground pins are,
  • Pin No 6
  • Pin No 9
  • Pin No 14
  • Pin No 20
  • Pin No 25
  • Pin No 30
  • Pin No 34
  • Pin No 39
