If wifi and BT are disabled, then they are not using any power or radiating any RF
Code: Select all
Looking at the CYW43438 and CYW43455 datasheets it seems you cannot have "no power consumption" without cutting the power rails and/or removing the circuitry.
Yes. And that is harder to get right than one might first think. Just for fun I was playing with this idea a few months ago.If you want to stop any (very) minor RF leakage from HDMI etc... then you'll have to put it in a shielded box.
Are you sure? How did you measure it? Unless your home is free of any modern electronic devices and miles away from anywhere I find it unlikely that it is "e-smog" free.The reason is simply to reduce e-smog as far as possible, and up to now I managed to avoid any in my home network.
The use of word "e-smog" should tell you where this is heading...
It will still be radiating, just not at wireless frequencies.
The easiest way to reduce radiation is to remove the network, remove the raspberries, remove the power cables, remove your phone, remove your internet connection, seal everything in aluminium foil and do the same at every neighbour around you. Or migrate to another planet where there will be a different radiation problem.
Eh? Does that mean we all have to be "Bogus!" in our excellent adventures while things are afoot at the Circle-K?
or "just be excellent to each other " Dude!
Then you're doing a premature optimization when you buy into any nonsense about "e-smog". Visible light is also electromagnetic radiation, and it is several orders of magnitude more energetic than radio waves. If you wanted to be "reasonable" about it, the first thing you should be looking to do is eliminate any LEDs that are on your RPi.
Electric power lines (including the ones in your residence) emit more radiation that the Pi does.
I don't know where you're shopping, but all my sources show the Pi2Bv1.2, Pi3B, and Pi3B+ at the same price...$35.
That is false, cell phone radiation has been shown conclusively in thousands of tests over decades to not cause any harm to human beings (as physics predicted BTW). There has been no uptick in any of the predicted physiological problems during the past 40 years of ever increasing cell phone use, only psychological problems. All of the claimed harms are based on severely flawed studies by people who are classified as pseudo-scientists and quacks.
Even if true, one doesn't spend lots of time holding a Pi up to the side of ones head. Since electromagnetic radiation falls off as an inverse square of the distance, even a few inches will make a significant difference.cab1 wrote: ↑Wed Mar 28, 2018 3:04 pmDidnt want to start discussion about e-smog, but for example cell phone radiation has been proven to have negative effects on the human body after decades of ignoring the critics. Thus, at least if it is easy, it *is* reasonable to avoid as much radiation as possible, even if it appears to be superfluous in some years (btw harmlessness can never be proven).
