  • X: crystal oscillator (used for clocks)

P.4 LPDDR3 FPGA178

Note: The title of this schematic page should be changed from "LPDDR3 FPGA178" to "LPDDR3 FBGA178", because the RAM chip is a 178-pin fine pitch ball grid array (FBGA), not a field-programmable gate array (FPGA).

DU1:

  • Artmem ATL3A1632H12A 2GB 800MHz LPDDR3-1600 SDRAM, FBGA-178 11.0x11.5x0.93 mm

  • Note: RAM will be clocked slower, since the Allwinner A64 only supports up to 3GB DDR3-1333 (666.5MHz) and doesn’t specify the top supported LPDDR3 speed.

P.5 CPU

U1:

  • Allwinner A64 1.2Ghz 4x Cortex-A53, 64-bit, superscalar, 32KB instruction & 32KB data L1 cache per core, 512KB L2 shared cache, ARM Mali-400 MP2 (Utgard) GPU, HDMI 1.4 (up to 4K@30), USB 2.0 with OTG, MIPI CSI, 4 channels in/out, 24-bit, 8-48 KHz audio, video encode: H.264 1080p@60, video decode: H.265 4K@30, H.265 1080p@120, H.264, MPEG1/2/4 / VP8 / AVS / AVS+ 1080p@60, FBGA-396 15x15 mm

  • Will Semiconductor WPM1481 single P-channel, -12V, -5.5A, power MOSFET

J600:

  • BA5924211-R battery connector

  • Note: Picture shows this part as having 8 pins, but the schematic shows 6 pins. One page says that it is made by LateralPressure, but another says it is made by ROHM.

L606:

  • IND_252010 2.2uH-2A inductor

  • Note: Maybe this is the TDK VLS252010HBU.

U601:

  • Note 1: The schematic says the package is BGA-169, but the Kimtigo documentation says it is FBGA-153.

  • Note 2: The A64 only supports up to eMMC 5.0.

  • Note 3: The schematic lists the part as KM110SS0016GxA-DDD00WT, but these photos show that its variant, the KM111SS0016GxA-DDD00WT, is being used in the 16GB PinePhone.

P.10 CAMERA

J1000:

  • T03-1025-FG01 27-pin connector to the rear camera.

  • Note: The schematic says "GC2035-200W", which is a mistake because the rear camera is the OmniVision OV6540.

J1001:

  • T03-1025-FG01 27-pin connector to the front camera.

  • Note: The schematic says "GC2035-200W", which is a mistake because the rear camera is the GalaxyCore GC2145, not the GalaxyCore GC2035.

U1200:

  • STmicroelectronics LIS3MDL ultra-low-power three-axis magnetometer, LGA-12 2.0x2.0x1.0 mm datasheet

  • Note: The LIS3MDL is currently unavailable, so it has been replaced in the PinePhone Beta Edition with the Voltafield AF8133L e-Compass, which is unlisted on the Voltafield web site, but the AF8133J is listed. Presumably U1200 will be unpopulated and U1203 will be populated in the Beta Edition, since they appear to be alternatives.

U1201:

U1202:

  • TDK InvenSense MPU6050 six-axis, low-power MEMS gyroscope and accelerometer, QFN-24 4x4x0.9 mm datasheet

U1203:

  • or Voltafield Technology Corp. (VTC) AF8133J 3-axis electronic compass with proprietary anisotropic magneto resistive (AMR) technology, 8-pin WLCSP 1.2x1.2x0.5 mm

  • Note: These parts appear to be alternatives to be used if the LIS3MDL is unavailable, so U1203 was probably unpopulated in BraveHeart and the Community Editions, but will be populated in the Beta Edition.

U1204:

  • Bosch Sensortek BMI120 3-axis gyroscope and accelerometer, LGA-14 2.5x3.0x0.83 mm

  • Note: Listed as "NC/BMI120", where "NC" probably means "not connected", so there may be circuits in the PCB for the part, but it is not placed on the board. This is probably an alternative to the TDK InvenSense MPU6050, in case it isn’t available or costs too much.

Q1200:

  • Toshiba SSM3K35MFV field-effect transistor, silicon N-channel MOS type

D1200:

  • Torex XBS104S14 Schottky barrier diode, 1A, 40V, SOD-123A package

J1201:

  • 2-pin connector to a motor, 1x1.8 mm

  • Note: Presumably this is a vibration motor.

P.13 DIGITAL VIDEO

J1300:

  • Note 1: The schematic lists this part as "ANX7688S", but it is unclear what the "S" at the end stands for.

  • Note 2: xnux.eu provides more info on the ANX7688, including flashing the firmware.

  • 18 parts for the PinePhone USB-C port are labeled as T_xxx_ in the schematic with the image of transistors, but it is possible that these are resistors and capacitors.

† There are 26 U/DU_xxx_ listed in the PinePhone schematic, but the two extra are for an alternative magnetometer (U1200 / U1203) and an alternative gyroscope and accelerometer (U1202 / U1204) which are unpopulated.
