Iris Carrier Board V2.0B
We plan the following changes but will issue an official PCN with all details once we manufactured prototypes and did a complete validation:
  • Resolve USB_C_DET backfeeding issue: Change R115 from 560R to 10k and R116 from 1k to 10k
  • Resolve RS232 transceiver backfeeding issue: Change TI SN65C3243 with TI MAX3243IDBR
  • Resolve USB power switching backfeeding: Change R156 with R157
The version change from V2.0A to V2.0B includes bug-fixes only, we don't expect any impact on customers as there is no change in form-fit-function.
