Raspberry Pi 2 crashes through camera flashes




According to users, the new Raspberry Pi 2 suffer from photosensitivity. Thus ensuring camera flashes and possibly laser pointers make it crashes developers board. All other models do not seem to suffer from crashes by light.

The problems have been reported on the forum of raspberry. A number of users have confirmed to reproduce the crashes and also an engineer of Raspberry Pi confirmed the problems. From the posted experiences show that the Raspberry Pi 2 stops functioning once with light is shined. Include xenon camera flash ensure that crashes the sign. One user sets up the forum that directing a laser pointer on the mother plate also causes problems.

According to the makers of the raspberry-signs is probably the SMPS chip the culprit. This is necessary in order to adjust the voltage. Measurements show that flashes can ensure that the voltage fails briefly state the sign, which is probably responsible for the crashes. It is still unclear whether the makers are planning to fix the problems.

Last week the new Raspberry Pi 2 was announced . The sign should perform better than previous models. There is a quad-core Broadcom BCM2836-soc four ARMv7 Cortex-A7 cores and built a clock speed of 900MHz. The sign can be rotated include Windows 10.
