Re: So: who's got a rev2 board?

Can anyone say they received a PI from RS recently? Well... after i recently got a email from RS that my order (for a second Pi) would be delay'ed until octobre! Orderdate= 26-4 :shock: So i canceled the order, im gonna order a second one with Farnell like the one im using for several months now ;)

Re: Design flaw? Polyfuses for USB current limiting

Ed Raket (Seems to be a Dutch name, as "Raket" is Rocket in Dutch) may be right about the hotplugging problem, but for backfeeding the PI from a hub 1.0 Ohm it is still much more than the 0.18 Ohm of the input polyfuse, so it could cause a significant drop for the PI itself, how much of a bother th...

Re: USB Port Current Boost (solved)

But the 3v3 regulator is close to C6 and so will be fed from a voltage closer to that on C6 than that on C32. What the SoC recieves depends on where on the track it is connected. Thank you for your detailed explanation! i did not know that the 3v3 regulator was closest to C6, but now i understand w...

Re: Design flaw? Polyfuses for USB current limiting

The best solution would be to do what the new Rev2 board does, and to completely short out the USB polyfuses. Like so (picture is from the "USB current boost (solved)" thread): http://pluggy.me.uk/raspberry/pipolyfuse.jpg With this patch you can backfeed power from the hub into the PI without any i...

Re: USB Port Current Boost (solved)

... The cap that handles the USB supply is on the exact opposit corner of the PCB in-between the polyfuses, so NOT C6 but C32 and this cap is only 47uF. This cap should be >120uF... Given the board is ~3 inches, at speed of light = 1ft/ns I don't think that's going to make much difference. I've no ...

Re: Xbian + WiFi where am i going wrong?

1. Remove wifi adapter from Pi
2. Start Xbian
3. Go to "programs" and select "Xbian settings", upon "install wifi next reboot" select YES
4. Reboot
5. Wifi install script starts, read the instructions and make the selections (insert adapter when asked)
6. Restart and enjoy

Re: USB Port Current Boost (solved)

For what it's worth, in case of relevance. The USB spec says USB devices can have only a maximum of 10 uF capacitance, but USB hosts must have a minimum of 120 uF. The purpose is for USB hot plugging, so the device doesn't suddenly drag the host's power down too low while it's capacitors are chargi...

Re: USB Port Current Boost (solved)

Well that is very interesting. I also have an Edimax clone dongle. I was looking at getting a 500ma polyfuse, mostly for cosmetic reasons, but I now see it may or may not work because the low end resistance might be a bit too small, so I may also go with just a 1 ohm resistor And this is why.

Re: USB Port Current Boost (solved)

I found that bridging the polyfuses with 0-Ohm links (copperwire), makes the Pi reboot when hotplug'in a Edimax wifi adapter, wich means it won't install anymore with MrEngman's brilliant script. I replaced the copperwire with 1-Ohm resistors, and all works well. So the hotplugg'in coused a powersur...

Re: USB Port Current Boost (solved)

Why make this so complex? Any zero-ohm resistor that fits on the 1812 shape of F1 & F2 could replace the PI's F1 & F2 polyfuses, or you could simply a piece of wire on place, or even across the existing polyfuse. If you don't want to solder you can temporarily use a crocodile clip to short the fuse...
