Re: Prevent SD-Card Corruption

@lost suggested that they could... LMAO No, I think the suggestion was no additional cost on the HW. There would clearly be additional cost on the card . However, as above, Swissbit don't work correctly (and yet all other SD cards do work correctly), and in our testing, a good quality e.g. Sandisk ...

Re: Interfacing 1-lane DSI LCD with 2-Lane DSI of Rasberry PI

I believe so. However, unless you are using the new VC4 driver, you won't have access to the GPU where the driver needs to live, so setting it up will be impossible.

They do sell industrial grade cards (>100 quid/ea for an 8G card). I doubt they'll just toss one in at no extra cost with an order for a Pi...
Why would they? If you want industrial grade, you'll have to pay for it.

Re: raspberrypi for QoS

OK, there is a bit of a fly in the ointment here if you are using the inbuilt Wireless adapter. We have had to turn off the QoS stuff because of a bug in the firmware of the wireless chip. We will turn it back on when Cypress have a fix for the issue in the firmware itself. For more details, see thi...

Re: Prevent SD-Card Corruption

We won't be selling industrial cards. In our experience (i.e. testing) they give no benefits over a good quality off the shelf card. (i.e. Sandisk). We've even have one make actually lock up after a few uses, not corruption, just some sort of incompatibility. If you mitigate the chances of corruptio...

The issue, as I see it, is you've got the Raspberry Pi foundation saying you can only buy one per person and at the same time, on the forums here, official representatives are encouraging people to buy more than one. Make up your minds. Either enforce this silly rule or pull it out. Right now it fe...

Re: use pi zero w in commercial production

What a bizarre situation! Why don't they simply raise the price by say £1 - £2 and churn them out by the thousands? This would give them a decent profit margin and the extra cost would make little difference to the one-off hobbyist type user. Continuity of supply? Simply don't change it, if it does...

In this case the "exception" is a warning detected within an interrupt (rather than a fault exception), triggered by an underrun or overrun (XRUN) within ALSA.

That kernel dump shows an exception - which is usually a bad thing. You should be able to track it down from the stack dump, and perhaps some more logging.
