PiKVM-A3/A4 for Raspberry Pi Open-source KVM Over IP

by Cindy Ding on August 03, 2022

In July 2022, we released the PiKVM-A3 and PiKVM-A4 kit based on Raspberry Pi computer. The KVM refers to Keyboard Video Mouse. PiKVM is divided into Raspberry Pi 4 version (PiKVM-A3) and Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W / Zero W version (PiKVM-A4).

PiKVM-A3 without case is also compatible with Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ / 3B, but since Raspberry Pi 3 without OTG interface, when PiKVM-A3 is used with Pi 3B+/3B, OTG analog keyboard and mouse cannot be used.

The PiKVM-A3 is composed of follow parts:
  • X630-A3 HAT Board (for ethernet, cooling, RTC, ATX Control power in etc)
  • X630 HDMI to CSI-2 Board (for video capture)
  • X630-A5 Adapter Board (it is installed inside the PC case, and it connect the computer motherboard and IO panel cabe of PC case)
  • 0.96 inch OLED (for display, Resolution: 128×64 pixel)
  • Ethernet Cable (TIA/EIA-568.B connection, and it's ATX control signal cable)

The PiKVM-A4 is composed of follow parts:

  • X630-A4 HAT Board (for ethernet, RTC, ATX Control power in etc)
  • X630 HDMI to CSI-2 Board (for video capture)
  • X630-A5 Adapter Board (it is installed inside the PC case, and it connect the computer motherboard and IO panel cabe of PC case))
  • 0.96 inch OLED (for display, Resolution: 128×64 pixel)
  • Ethernet Cable (TIA/EIA-568.B connection, and it's ATX control signal cable)


PiKVM (https://pikvm.org/) is a very powerful and Open Source Software which allows for a remote connection via your Raspberry Pi to turn on/off or restart your computer, configure the UEFI/BIOS, and even reinstall the OS using the Virtual CD-ROM or Flash Drive. You can use your remote keyboard and mouse or PiKVM can simulate a keyboard, mouse, and a monitor, which are then presented in a web browser as if you were working on a remote system directly. It's true hardware-level access with no dependency on any remote ports, protocols or services!
