Orange Pi Zero Pin16,18(PA19,PA18) high at boot

Recommended Posts



When my orange pi zero is booted,  Pin16,18(PA19,PA18)  seems to record high value(3.3v)

I want the pins to stay low.


In the dtb file, PA18 and PA19 are assigned to i2c1 and i2s0. 

But in the /boot/armbianEnv.txt file those overlays are not enabled.



Can someone please help me how to keep ping 16 and 18 low at t he boot time?

Thank You.

After some more digging, I found out that this happens because of hardware.

This is due to the Orange Pi Zero board's pull up resistors attached to the specified pins.

After removing the pull-up resistors, Pin16,18(PA19,PA18) did not record high value at the bootup.
