I want to design a python script that would allow me to check whether it's currently in a standard Pi 3 or it's in a Compute Module 3. But I have no idea even on how Raspbian OS know itself is currently in a Pi 3 or a CM3.

Any help?

The command is:

cat /proc/cpuinfo

And the list over the different hardware is here: http://elinux.org/RPi_HardwareHistory#Board_Revision_History

I have this script that show what Pi you have and its relevant data. However I do not have all possible RPi's so a 100% test is not possible. Still it may be of some use.

#!/bin/bash
echo "Start WhichPi"



rev=$(grep Revision /proc/cpuinfo | cut -f 2 -d: | tr -d '[:space:]')
echo $rev
case $rev in

  • Hi, thanks! it's working! But in my case, I've to say sorry to you mate, the team is preferring the cat /proc/cpuinfo method – Rickleus B.H. Yoon Sep 18 '17 at 7:46
