Re: micro usb power switch idea

Not to bring up a dead topic but we made a product to attach to existing microUSB power supplies and we are receiving good user feedback. There is a voltage drop across the switch so if your power supply isn't up to stuff, it will cause the rainbow or random issues. You can find our power switch her...

Re: Pi 3 Overheating Issue?

You may think it's spam but we consider it a legitimate issue with the board. I'm sure the foundation will put out a new Raspbian image with new firmware to fix the overheating issue by throttling the SoC more aggressively. For the HDMI signal to get corrupted is simply unacceptable. Even if the SoC...

Re: RPi 3 SoC at nearly 100 °C, reporting 80 °C

@loverpi, That indicates to me that the heat sink is acting as more of a thermal insulator than a dissipater. The white area is only 50C due to the gradient issue I mentioned. There's thermal conduction from the bottom of the SoC to the board and the white should get progressively larger over time ...

Re: RPi 3 SoC at nearly 100 °C, reporting 80 °C

loverpi, You know, looking at your thermal images what I see in both cases is a "white hot" area around the SoC. Sure enough your "after" image shows a nice cool heat sink. But the area of PCB around the SoC is the same white hot. The only other reference we have is at the bottom left of both image...

Just the one heatsink on the SOC should nearly always be sufficient. Pimoroni are selling a nice one for £1. ;)
Our heatsinks are better and cheaper after shipping. You can buy both and test yourself :) We will include them for free with our Pi 3.

Re: RPi 3 SoC at nearly 100 °C, reporting 80 °C

We came across the overheating issue in our internal engineering review of this product. 207F (97C) with CPU load only in 71F (22C) ambient. We attempted to measure CPU+GPU load but the board crashed on numerous attempts. We saw temperatures go up to 210+F. img_thermal_1457442329126.jpg After heatsi...
