does anybody have an actual datasheet of the chip (RTL8188CUS) on the wifi module (https://www.olimex.com/Products/Modules/RF/MOD-WIFI-RTL8188/)? I've been trying to google for it but apparently realtek plays their cards very close to their chest ;) The reason I'm interested is that the wifi chip gets very hot when the A13 is running. I measured 77 degrees celcius at 24 degrees ambient temperature. I used FLIR thermal camera for the measurement, and I can upload a picture from it somewhere if it's needed.



hello, I'm concerned about same thing

would be great to have an "official" opinion about normal operation temperature range

thanks in advance


Thank you JohnS, it seems that 70 degrees is a normal temperature for this appliance. Any way I think is hot, I've planned to put in a box, some precautions should be taken
