Overheating protection

Which Khadas SBC do you use?

VIM3 Basic

Which system do you use? Android, Ubuntu, OOWOW or others?


Which version of system do you use? Khadas official images, self built images, or others?


Please describe your issue below:

Does Khadas VIM3 have some overheat protection mechanism? I notice some temperature thresholds. Could you please explain how they work as passive, hot and critical?

Post a console log of your issue below:

@JJ1997 the overheat protection only works by throttling the cpu to the minimum clockspeed to slow down and use less power to make sure it doesn’t cross the trip point threshold, it starts throttling from 65c onwards, and heavily cuts back by 80c

Do you have any infomation on the mechanism for 90°C and 110°C ? Thanks a lot

At those trip points, the device will shutdown to prevent further damage.
