Digi2 Pro / Raspberry Pi 4 1.5 incompatibilities

We have become aware that there is a new hardware version of the Raspberry Pi that began rolling around November/December 2021 which is not compatible with our Digi2 boards due to a hardware change on the new Pi revision 1.5 board.
Unfortunately this change was not announced in advance by the Pi Foundation, we did not become aware of this problem until February when we began receiving reports of difficulties from multiple customers. For some technical details on this, have a look at this blog post.

Although we have no control over the versioning of boards from Pi Foundation, we recognize the inconvenience this represents to our customers who were likewise not aware of this change. We fully intend to support you in this matter.
We ask as a first step, please see the link below for simple instructions for how to identify the Pi hardware version. Unfortunately neither on the box nor the board you can see the hardware revision. You have to boot Linux on your Pi to run a command:

Log in to your Raspberry Pi and run the following command:

cat /proc/device-tree/model

If it says “Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Rev 1.5”, the Digi2 Pro might not work as expected.

Update 4.5.2022: The updated Digi2 Pro board is now available in our shop.

Although this change has been entirely out of our control, we are grateful for your continued support of our product. Please contact your seller or us if you have any ongoing questions or concerns.
