Re: Today is Pi day.

For those of us in the UK. We have to wait until 22/7 which is the closest method of getting Pi via a mathematical equation :)

Re: The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Q&A thread

The LEDs (and others) seem now to hang off a GPIO expander - the WiFi/BT combo chip gobbled up so many there weren't enough left. No idea about the details yet. From what I have seen, I am led to believe that the LED's are now controlled through a Mailbox, the additional class for the virtual GPIO ...

Re: Schematics of Raspberry Pi 3 Model B

I'm pretty sure on RPi3 the ACT LED was moved to the GPIO expander like the the ones for the camera. That's why it appears on a virtgpio +&leds { + act_led: act { + label = "led0"; + linux,default-trigger = "mmc0"; + gpios = <&virtgpio 0 0>; + }; +}; Going by the new gpio-bcm-virt.c file (The Virtu...

Re: Schematics of Raspberry Pi 3 Model B

See https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=138290&view=unread#p917909 - there's a GPIO expander hooked up somehow. Related to this: https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/commit/3730cc6cb7402336c21f6f6c9d18453bf519efc6 ? I'm being specific in looking at this, but the commit seems to ...

Re: Schematics of Raspberry Pi 3 Model B

If I am understanding you correctly, this means we can no longer access the Power and Activity LED's via the GPIO pins. That's a bit disappointing :(
