Re: Which Raspberry Pi Should I Buy

The 3B+ is not overly delicate, unless you count a 0.002% failure rate as overly delicate. Isn't it a bit disingenuous to imply that out of 2 million sold only 40 have succumbed in this way? I think 40 was an estimate of the number of people who have posted about it in the forum. I'm sure the Raspb...

Re: official raspberry pi touchscreen registers

The TS interface is handled by the GPU, so we have never published the datasheet. There is a mailbox call to grab the data rom it though - you can see this usage in the Linux driver.

Hai everybody, Thanks for all the input.

Re: Which Raspberry Pi Should I Buy

What was the figure quoted above ? 40 issues? Out of approximately 2 million 3B+ sold. Yes, that many. Not only that but some of those issues caused by people shorting out the Pi whilst powered up. So user error. The 3B+ is not overly delicate, unless you count a 0.002% failure rate as overly delica...

Re: Dive Coms

Whilst we do not claim to pass anything but the consumer electronics EMI standards, just out of interest, where was the spike?

Re: Support For Bare Metal Programming

We don't have any specific information on baremetal programming on the Pi, but we do have a bare metal forum, so might be worth reading through that first.

Well, there is runs properly until you plug in a USB device that takes a lot of power.

Not sure what the case is. The point is, if you don't have high requirements on your USB devices, you can get away with lower powered supplies.

Odd. We've had a report on the previous post. And I fail to see why - is it really "a fine example of everything that is wrong with this forum"?

You using that power supply unit (PSU) on a Raspberry Pi 2B? Then it should be OK. If you use that on a Raspberry Pi 3B or Raspberry Pi 3B+, that is expected (and no buts about it), as the minimum recommended PSU rating is 5V 2.5A with thick cables , and not some phone's charger.. .
