Is there a change-log for the Gem hardware? I see the LCD is different. What's the change there, or anything else?

Thanks!

Soo.. what is the recommended compute module? 3+/Lite? Or 3? Why is the 3+ called Lite? I thought this was the newer, beefier CM? :?:

I wanted to ask the same, I get the difference between a CM3 and CM3+, but wasn't clear on the difference between the lite or not.

The answer is that the CM3+ comes with on board flash memory normally, whereas the Lite version forgoes the on board memory and allows you to add your own sd card reader. So with Kite's boards you're better off using the SD card reader included in the board

You're right the CM3+ is the newer version of the compute module 3 - based on the newer pi model 3 B+ https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/co ... plus-lite/
