I’m glad to see the update on the Dogwood batch.
I loved seeing the photos of new PCB, but they are too blurry for me to see the markings on the chips. From what I can identify, it doesn’t look like any of the big chips have changed in Dogwood.
Besides this with Chestnut we discovered that ST Micro, the manufacturer of the TESEO LIV3 GNSS multi constellation receiver we are using in the L5, silently changed the recommendations for the antenna input electronics design. Now in Dogwood we see that GNSS reception still wasn’t great so we went back to suppliers and the drawing board, applied some more changes and are now finally getting a fix!
Does this mean that the Librem 5 will use a different GNSS, or that Purism is keeping the TESEO LIV3, but changing the antenna and some other electrical components associated with the GNSS?
Can anyone identify what is the purpose of the red, black and yellow wires next to the ribbon cable and the black wire in the upper corner?
Is it easy to detach the ribbon cable that connects the daughter PCB with the USB-C connector? If it is easy to detach, then it will be much easier to replace if the USB-C connector gets broken.
