Since then, I’ve been given a 256 Mb Rev 2 model B by George Dowds of ThePiZone (thank you George) and I bought myself a red B+ from AliExpress. So now there are 12 Pi in the family photo, I thought it was worth a reshoot. If you fancy a closer look, you can click the below image for a higher resolution version. I set myself the impossible task of trying to light them so the writing could be read on the chips of all 12 in one shot. I got most of them though (and all in one shot, no cheating).
Last time, Andrew Scheller asked me if I could add the revision information to the photo. So this time I’ve done it. That’s what the numbers “0002” etc. are. They’re found by typing…
…at the command line. And yes I had to do it for all 12.
You can see that my red, Chinese B+ has the same revision number 0010 as the SONY B+ models. I think it’s supposed to be different. But one of the things I’ve learnt, since getting into hardware, is that, quite often, things aren’t as they are supposed to be.
Other than that, there were no surprises in the revision numbers.
Someone also commented last time that it would be nice to see the compute module on its own without the baseboard – and it made it easier for me to fit them all in – so I did that too, this time.
