Re: (again) Raspberry Pi sleep/standby modes software support

What I fear is that the board itself cannot do low power (even if SoC can sleep and wake up) because you even don't consider this when designing the board. Then of course this is all pointless. Not necessarily. With a HAT or something in between on the power USB, with a full hibernation all can be ...

Re: (again) Raspberry Pi sleep/standby modes software support

If adding sleep mode was fairly easy it would have been done years ago. It's very much a non-trivial problem, it may even be unsolvable. There's nothing from Brcm, they are not interested, so any support would have to be done by us, and at present we have no plans for any advanced sleep support - t...

Re: RaspberryPi 4: heatsink or fan

Something like this ? https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/fan-shim Very much so! That is not SMBus am I right? Because you can read the fan speed or do other sh*t by using only one I2C bus and on address. There is no SMBus on the Pi. Although SMBus is of course just a very specific implementation of...

(again) Raspberry Pi sleep/standby modes software support

Hi, I read about the lack of support for the sleep mode. One may say that does not matter and dismiss the question like that, like many from the forum, but please don't do that. Not only is useless, but is like spam. So to me it does matter, or at least I am curious about, as first thing today is a ...

I think that if you send 2 set inf instructions through USART, you can connect a device 1, then "snooping" the bus the device 2. BUT The first (or second) parameter shuld be an address that activate the response of the device dsired. The second yout data. §But the protocol is up to you, and I thinks...

Re: Electrical specifications BCM2835

The characteristics of *board* are widely publicized: 5v at 700mA. Since you're buying a board and not just a BCM2835, why would the specifics of the BCM2835 matter to you? It should be trivial that the GPIOs are connected to BCM, whichever the board. You can understand that current and voltages mu...

The PL011 UART (uart0) is currently initialised (baud rate divisor and GPIO pin settings) by the GPU bootloader prior to loading the ARM kernel image.
