I’ve been having problems with the CHIP since I received the receiver kit. The CHIP ends up in a non bootable state after being powered on for a few days. So far I have experienced this 3 times. Removing the power for a few minutes does not enable the board to boot up. Only keeping the power removed for 60+ minutes and then repowering the board has allowed the board to boot up.
Also removing and reapplying the power or issuing reboot command to the CHIP will cause this boot issue if the board is warm.
—> CHIP gets somewhat faulty whe it’s warm?? Any input on this behaviour? This unreliability makes the whole thing not worth the effort for me.
The data is streaming in reliably with 4-6 dB of SNR from the 25E satellite with 1 or 2 uncorrectable packets/day. The antenna is on a window sill and the LNA+radio+CHIP are located under the window out of reach from direct sunlight. The power is supplied to the system by a quality 1.8A PSU, using a 3.4A PSU did not eliminate the hangs.
