Production Problems Hit The Raspberry Pi



It seems that after all the excitement at the launch of the coolest little computer around, the Raspberry Pi, which some buyers will have to wait just a little bit longer for their Raspberry Pi to be delivered. The problem is that the device has the wrong networking jack installed, which means although the computer will work fine the user will not be able to connect to the internet.



According to the firms Community manager Liz Upton, she said in a post on the company’s blog;


“where we’d specified jacks with integrated magnetics in the BOM and schematics, the factory soldered in non-magnetic jacks. No magnetics means no network connection. We’ve known about this for four days now, but we haven’t been able to tell you about it because it meant we had to do some further tests to make sure that nothing else was affected.”


Well we have waited this long, so whats whats another a couple of days, weeks, surely not months, going to matter?
