What's On Board

 

How to Use

  1. Preparation:
    • SD card, card reader.
  2. Download the system:
  3. Format the SD card:
  4. Program the image:
  5. Start RPI5:
    • Insert the programmed SD card into the Raspberry Pi, and connect the 5V 5A Type-C adapter to boot.
  6. Connect peripherals:
    • Attach the on-screen mouse and keyboard to start your Raspberry Pi journey.

 

UART Login

The Raspberry Pi 5 features a dedicated UART connector for debugging, supporting a maximum baud rate of 921,600bps. It is configurable via EEPROM parameters, active at all times, and enables direct access to early boot and firmware information, as well as the Linux console after booting.

RTC (Real-time Clock)

 

Hardware

The RTC is powered by adding a backup battery using the J5 (BAT) connector. It works without a connection as long as the PI5 is powered on.

RTC Hardware

 

Software Debug

  • The default device is /dev/rtc0.
  • For time, type "date" in the command line. The RTC time updates after automatic network timing if the default RTC device is connected and working.

 

Hwclock Commands

  • sudo hwclock -w: System clock -> hardware clock (RTC)
  • sudo hwclock -s: Synchronize hardware clock (RTC) -> system clock
  • sudo hwclock --set --date="9/8/2023 16:45:05": Set hardware clock time (RTC)
  • sudo hwclock -r: View the hardware clock (RTC)
  • sudo hwclock --verbose: Display version information

 

Auto Wakeup

To support low-power mode for wake-up alerts:

sudo -E rpi-eeprom-config --edit
# Add the following two lines:
POWER_OFF_ON_HALT=1
WAKE_ON_GPIO=0
# Test the function with:
echo +600 | sudo tee /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm
sudo halt or sudo poweroff
# Will wake up and restart after 10 minutes

 

RTC Battery Charging

Check RTC battery support and maximum input voltage before adding commands:

sudo nano /boot/firmware/config.txt
# Add
dtparam=rtc_bbat_vchg=3000000
# 3000000 indicates the maximum voltage, charging to 3V will disable charging, and the voltage lower than 3V will start to trickle charging
