PinePhone v1.1 - Braveheart
The PinePhone v1.1 "Braveheart" is a hardware revision of the PinePhone due to ship in January 2020.
This page contains resources which are exclusive to the 1.1 revision of the PinePhone. For other revisions, or for resources related to all PinePhone revisions, see PinePhone.
Changes from 1.0
Braveheart is slightly different from the 1.0 revision of the Pinephone. These differences should not require creating different images.
- Added CPU shielding and cover plate
- Swap PC3 to FLASH_EN and PD24 to FLASH_TRIGOUT, where previously they were reversed
- Add pulldown resistor on PD24 (FLASH_TRIGOUT) so the flash LED does not light on boot
- Connect WiFi enable to VD33
- Set the EG25G's PWRKEY on by default (see resistor R1526)
- Add R630 resistor location, populate with 0K by default. Allows adjusting to different battery thermistors in case this is not possible in software.
- Add voltage shift to Pogo pins I2C-CLK, I2C-DATA, and INT. The Pogo Pin specified voltage is 3.3v while the A64's I2C is 2.8V.
This section lists problems known on the 1.1 revision hardware, possibly because they carried over from the 1.0 revision.
Modem Ring Indicator placement is not ideal
The EG25G's Ring Indicator pin is currently routed to GPIO pin PB2.
Ring Indicator is a configurable signaling pin capable of notifying the modem's host of incoming messages or calls. This makes it important to read the status of the pin during (ARISC / Super Standby) sleep, since incoming calls or text messages must wake the device.
Using the PB bank of GPIO on the A64 requires VCC-IO to be switched on. The only bank that does not have this requirement is the PL bank, at least as far as we can tell. Using information from the (related) A83T's manual:
"In the super standby mode,GPIO B/C/D/E/F/G/H of VDD_SYS domain can hold a particular output state through GPIO pad hold function,but VCC power of GPIO can not be closed at this time"
Ideally, Ring Indicator would be routed to somewhere on the PL bank because it stays active even when VCC-IO is switched off. In the current form, VCC-IO must stay on in Super Standby to allow the use of the Ring Indicator. The power usage difference between VCC-IO off and on is currently unknown, however, since crust is not able to disable peripherals or clock trees.
Re-routing Ring Indicator would require a new Device Tree for the system, so different images may need to be created.
