Agreed. I also designed a breakout board (rpi_serial
) and I didn't know of the pullups on the raspberry pi. So there are spots on the board for the pullups but only the very, very first board that had to be sent out before the pullups on the RPI were know has had these installed. I hope they have been removed by the owner by now.
The board continues to have the pullup resistor pads installed. Possibly in the future the raspberry won't have them anymore (*), so you might want to install them here.
(*) Which would be good for those who want to use the pins as a general purpose IO pin.
