The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced revision 2.0 of their boards.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced revision 2.0 of their boards. The team behind the Pi explains in a post on its website that the second revision won’t feature anything major such as a new processor or more memory, but will instead incorporate several changes based on the feedback the team has received since the original device was launched. The foundation states that revision 2.0 devices would be “filtering out over the next month as the last stocks of the revision 1.0 at each distributor and in each geography are exhausted”.Revision 2.0 of the Raspberry Pi will feature a small change to the GPIO pin out to add ARM JTAG support and to present a different I2C peripheral from that which is used on the camera interface. We also get a reset circuit, which can be used by fitting an appropriate header to P6, as the team has not fitted the header in the standard build. Shorting P6 pin 1 to P6 pin 2 will cause the BCM2835 to reset.Click here for full story
