Thermal Shot of Raspberry Pi







Watch this Fluke thermal camera image that Remy took from his running Raspberry Pi. Raspberry Pi has three main sources of heat: the voltage regulator, the USB/Ethernet controller and the Broadcom SoC. When the board is idle, these parts read 49.9°C, 48.7°C and 53°C, within the temperature ranges given in the datasheets for these components.

During a stress test where the ARM CPU was at 100% utilization, the Broadcom SoC reached almost 65° C while the Ethernet controller reached around 50°C.
