Bright Pi v1 Device Not Detected

Mon Oct 10, 2016 12:26 am

Just picked up a Bright Pi v1 (http://www.pi-supply.com/product/bright ... pberry-pi/) to go with my Pi Noir camera but after setting everything up, i2cdetect isn't showing many memory addresses in use. I'm fairly certain everything is soldered correctly but not sure what else could be wrong. Anyone have any ideas?

Model: Rasberry Pi 3 board
OS: Rasbian
Kernel: Linux 4.4.11-v7+

# cat /etc/modules
# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
#
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.
i2c-dev
bcm2835-v4l2

# grep i2c /boot/config.txt
dtparam=i2c_arm=on

# ls /dev/*i2c*
/dev/i2c-1

# ls /dev/*spi*
/dev/spidev0.0 /dev/spidev0.1

Can you show a picture of how you have soldered it?

And also, can you please show a picture of how you have connected it up to the Pi?

It is not being recognised on the I2C bus so hat implies either a dodgy driver chip or a bad connection.
