Of all people iFixit can get scarce devices before others. It is enough to remember that they issued gallery of dismantle of iPhone 5 still before the promptest Europeans managed to get it. That better feels a lack of hours of Pebble, after all they appeared in iFixit hands only at present — nearly two months later after the shipment beginning. We do not tell «the beginning of sales» as still at all all shareholders of the project on Kickstarter received the copies!
You wait the wonderful hours or is not present, probably it will be curious to you to find out that at them снутри …
«Kickstarter Edition». Sounds as a sentence. By the way, direct attention to information in the lower part of the back panel. Pebble maintain pressure to 5 atmospheres, i.e. in them it is possible to swim in the pool.
As it is possible to create in last 2 pictures, the case does not contain screws. Here the firm hot-water bottle of iOpener — the same also comes to the rescue that was used when dismantling iPad mini and iPad of the 4th generation.
For watertightness it is necessary to pay off: the forward part from within is missed the mark with such amount of glue that hours becomes unreal to open, without having damaged the screen. Ventured "repair" — say goodbye to the screen, here so.
Now though a certain use from the highest part of the monitor will be exclusive in case to illuminate it a small lamp.
Press a photo that as it is necessary to make out any of pixels:
Having unbent specifically a layer of «electronic paper», you will find light-emitting diodes for monitor illumination, also — a flat photoconductive matrix. Here everything works the same as in MacBook Pro, unless diodes only three.
Focuses with glue, as though, remained behind — the electric block is simply enclosed in a plastic frame with keys and fastenings for thongs.
And is not present — any amount of glue is and снутри. Namely, on glue the orange loop together with a photoconductive matrix "sits".
On a loop the weight a component is placed: all 4 buttons, all 3 light-emitting diodes, also aerial Blyutuz. Here it is possible to complain of impossibility of their substitution separately but who will want voobshchy to change something these hours if the screen all the same has to be offered?
Under a photoconductive matrix the top party of the motherboard and the battery hides.
As the screen on the basis of electric paper practically consumes nothing, the battery "holds" till 7 days. A battery voltage — 3,7 volts, capacity — 130 milliamper-hours.
The highest part of the motherboard:
• Reddish — the module Micron N25Q032A11ESE40F flash memory on 32 MB;
• Orange — the ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller frequency of 120 MHz, STMicroelectronics STM32F205RE;
• Yellow — the tryokhosny accelerometer STMicroelectronics LIS3DH.
On the silvery module Blyutuz costs Panasonic marking — «PAN1316» — but …
… but in fact "heart" of the module is the Texas Instruments CC2560A chip. It occurs in the TI catalog as not having support power effective Blyutuz 4.0. So after all, founders of Pebble mislead clients? In any way. On them to the words, the chip has an insertion from other controler, CC2564. Support Blyutuz 4.0 is, let even it is not activated in the Pebble operating system.
It was necessary practically nothing — to get (and is more exact, to squeeze out) buttons. To please the same watertightness under each of buttons rubber laying hides.
As with a view of to disassemble the device you it break, about substitution any of internal the component and speeches cannot be. Badly, for example, that it is impossible to change the battery. From 6 to 10 years of work — and everything, it "will simply exhaust". 6 years — not the best service life for not bad hours.
If to put 0 points from 10 on a scale of maintainability, iFixit decided not to appoint at all an assessment. It is good to them to be trained, then, you look, the next hours would manage be not to broken. But how here you will be trained when to get even one copy of Pebble it is very problematic?
