IPC2 change in battery type

Post by tamir »

IPC2 RTC battery is changed from soldered rechargeable battery to non-rechargeable battery on wires connected by W2B connector to the SBC.

The goal of this engineering change is to improve reliability of CMOS retention and RTC time keeping. Non-rechargeable batteries are found to be more reliable than rechargeable ones, last in IPC2 for over 5 years under normal usage scenarios and are easy to replace.

The change applies to SBC serials staring from: 171009-xxxx (09.10.17)
