Re: Raspberry Pi 3 - Bluetooth PL011 UART (9bit on mini-UART

FWIW, with the new pi3-miniuart-bt overlay, Bluetooth works fine and stable with the Mini UART. I was able to scan, pair, send files over OBEX, and so on. Of course, it is 8x slower than the PL011 UART at 115200 baud. Keep in mind to adjust the "console" value in cmdline.txt and to lock the core cl...

Re: Documentation bugs: RPi2&3 GPIO electrical specs

Maybe everything was still TTL 5V logic levels when I got it ;) but the principles are still the same today. All I will say is that if you have never had to work with incomplete specs. then you are very lucky. PeterO The issue is that we don't know if the logic levels are TTL or CMOS - it makes a d...

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 - Bluetooth PL011 UART (9bit on mini-UART

More importantly, how do I get the Bluetooth working with the mini-UART? Or is this mapping not possible?

Re: Pi3 speed compared to Pi2

It really depends what you are doing.
For example, I'm using OpenElec and was struggling to view h265's before (in RPi2B). Now they do work (RPi3B).

I'm definitely seeing the improvement.

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 - Bluetooth PL011 UART (9bit on mini-UART

Hi, It's really difficult to ask why something was done in a particular way without frustrating the engineer that worked on it - one of my weekly challenges at code/design review meetings. I am sure design reviews are carried out at RPF so I'm not suggesting that this was a boneheaded decision. Data...

Raspberry Pi 3 - Bluetooth PL011 UART (9bit on mini-UART)?

Hi, I saw a brief comment on the forum (The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Q&A thread) that the new Bluetooth module uses the PL011 UART and the GPIO header will be using Broadcom's mini-UART instead. Is this the case? I have a project where I needed a 9-bit UART and so was modifying the parity bit (mark/sp...

Re: PC and Gaming Console Hybrid - solution with Operating S

Just a quick question. how do you stop people stealing your hard work?

Before this falls into a discussion on open-source, free etc etc etc, remember that Elite wasnt given away for free.

hopefully KidsRuby works faster on the RPi than on my PC, as the turtle output just ran too slow
