I can confirm that USB-C cables do not appear to work when used like that.
What do you mean 'small market'? There have to be at least 3 individuals here in the US alone desperate for such a solution. Considering design and tooling should be able to produce such an item for as little as $200-$300 per. lol
Sure, that would probably work, assuming you made the correct connections, but I've got as even easier and less risky solution...supersjimmie wrote: ↑Thu Nov 14, 2019 9:30 amInstead of having to modify the rPI4 board, would it be possible to add the 5.1k resistor inbetween a male/female usb-c connector?
That way we can have just a small converter-cable with the resistor instead of the risk of ruining the rpi4 board.
Power adapter USB-C -> diy USB-C [male] -> diy cable with resistor -> USB-C [female] -> RPi4
No, but it will be cheaper.
Already been answered. Was there some other answer you were looking for?
@imperf3kt - Despite your experience, I decided to buy a pair of USB-C socket to micro-USB plug adaptors and tried one with my microUSB socket to usb-C adaptor. I chose these Arktek one's from Amazon (https://www.amazon.co.uk/ARKTEK-female- ... B071W8WQBD)
Just about exactly 6 months.W. H. Heydt wrote: ↑Tue Aug 27, 2019 7:18 pmThe flaw is minor, so there's no hurry. I doubt the change will result is a Rev. 2 of the PCB. More likely to be 1.1 or 1.2, or even 1.0.1. I do not, personally, expect to see a revised board for about 6 months. Could be sooner, could be longer. It all depends on whether or not any other board corrections are found that need to be done and how urgent they are.
