Firstly, tks for your effort on BPI SW development, secondly tks for clear explanation to point out root cause on THS setting. I'll deliver this issue to our SW RD who may need time to fix it. If our RD can't conquer it, pls DO help us, we really need SW experts to join and discuss with us to improve BPI performance.
Currently, our SW RDs are busy doing devices SW development such as camera, WIFI and BT etc. can work fine, that's why we released Armbian image for developers who can test camera, WIFI and BT functions then. If devices SW are not ready, thus customers will think that HW has problems to return goods, we'll get lots of complaints and trouble, except we need to do validation and certification, above devices SW must be ready before summit samples to Labs.
As to Orange Pi who adopts different components with ours, we won't on board components without ROHS and UL certified, BPI not only insist better components quality but also follow HH manufacturing stations to keep quality and stability, each BPI board must work fine before delivery. We'll evaluate voltage regulator based on better quality and certified before we use it.
Hope above conditions, you can understand our situation, I'll appreciate it very much! As our BPI belongs to open source, we need all of you to join and give us good advice. We also expect all developers will love to use BPI and enjoy development.
