Orange Pi Zero Plus2 H5 hardware oddity in VDD_CPUX power circuit

Recommended Posts

 

I soldered one of those on my board and it worked, but had some problems with 5v pins not giving enough voltage - but it boot up with no problems (I did the patching of armbian like it was presented in the first posts, by compiling it, etc.)

After I removed the mosfet the 5v pins were working as they should.

I'll check the output on the pins now. What voltage did you read?

 

Edit: just checked my board and all 5v pins are outputting at 5.09V and the 3.3 pins are at 3.34V so mine seems fine. What mosfet did you buy?

I have a Orange PI Zero Plus and I install ARMBIAN 4.19 system,

How can I  use board-h5-orangepi-zero-plus-add-regulator.patch to update the system?

Sorry, I'm a newcomer. Can this patch board-h5-orangepi-zero-plus-add-regulator.patch run directly in the system? Or do I have to compile the 4.19 kernel file first? Can you tell me more detailed steps?

Unfortunately I don't have a Zero Plus so I can't really speak to specifics regarding it, but if you are running the 4.19.y kernel then you shouldn't have to do anything in this regard - it should work properly by default...?

Zero Plus CPU working at 1.3Ghz now,

I have been unable to normal use it before ,because the MOS pin is not soldered well (the solder has a fault).

 

I upgrade system to 4.19,and set '/boot/armbianEnv.txt'  add 'gpio-regulator-1.3v cpu-clock-1.3GHz-1.3v'

Hi @JamesX, excellent - glad to hear this!  :)

FYI: Ordered my Orange Pi Zero Plus 2 H5 (Set 4) on January 10th, 2019 from Seller "Shenzen Xunlog Software". Received it last week.

Q5 is still unpopulated. PCB still says "Version 1.0". There's also a sticker on it.

Ok I decided to give a second try with the new  armbian - I re-soldered a mosfet in that place and is not working, I've got this when checking cpufreq-info (I added the overlay line in armbianEnv.txt and the cpufrequtils max frequency):

 

  cpufreq stats: 120 MHz:0.00%, 240 MHz:44.43%, 480 MHz:0.63%, 648 MHz:0.98%, 816 MHz:0.92%, 960 MHz:0.43%, 1.01 GHz:52.60%  (94)

 

I have 1.1v on 1V2C pad, with a fresh image  Armbian_5.75_Orangepizeroplus2-h5_Ubuntu_bionic_next_4.19.20.img

First I thought it may be a solder error, or a damaged component . But I tried with an old image  Armbian_5.34.171121_Orangepizeroplus2-h5_Ubuntu_xenial_next_4.13.14.img and I've got 1.3v on 1V2C pad, so I guess is a software problem?

 

LATER EDIT:

ok just found out that the overlay name was changed for some reason from cpu-clock-1.3GHz in cpu-clock-1.3GHz-1.3v - now it seems to work (hope will help future modders)

Hi @km1kze, yes - that's correct.  I made the overlay change as with the newer kernel and board support there are a number of boards that provide implicit support for 1.3v regulators, and as such this overlay explicitly should be used with 1.3v regulators.  Similarly, I could make a 1.4v overclock overlay (e.g., for the NEO Core2) that would support 1.4GHz - I just haven't gotten around to doing this yet.  In any case, I'm glad to hear that this is working for you now!

@5kft Thank you for making this possible!

Thanks @km1kze :)  However I would like to thank the Armbian team for their awesome work in providing a great platform for supporting all of these boards...it is simply amazing!  :thumbup:

 

BTW, I just looked and now I recall why I didn't create a 1.4v/1.4GHz overlay - it's essentially included by default in the mainline now.  The default maximum clockspeed for 1.4v-capable boards (out of the box) is 1.368GHz.  My Core2 boards clock just fine to 1.400GHz at 1.4v, but I figured that it isn't worth introducing another overlay for such a small difference.
