Raspberry Pi Thermal imaging Video

26 08 2013

Whilst working out why a friend’s Raspberry Pi kept crashing I noticed that the NIC/USB chip is in fact running quite hot. Using a thermal imaging camera I decided to take a set of  images  as the Pi booted XBMC. Figured it would be fun to  merge them into a video and put it here.

Thanks for your pictures. I believe they would have been clearer if you set the range so that the offsets don’t change on each picture.

Possibly slightly easier to check between frames but the default is to give the largest dynamic range between hottest and coldest on that frame as this isn’t movie mode but a bunch of frames. This mode also gives clearest colour differentiation in that frame of course!

Some time ago i read about a PCB bug that made the board suck power from the NIC 1.8V internal regulator.
I found the topic: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=5898&start=75
