UPS PIco HV3.0 documentation not on github: “03_0x38_W_UPS PIco HV3.0.pdf”

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/10/17

I ordered a UPS PIco HV3.0 A Stack 450 Plus and it arrived without any documentation on how to solder the parts together.

So I tried searching for them: https://www.google.com/search?q=UPS+PIco+HV3.0+A+Stack+450+Plus+installation+instructions which turned mostly github based URLs.

I learned there is a bit on github:

But despite code and documentation being there, no installation instructions on how to solder the stuff together.

Luckily, they responded quickly to my tweet So I got my “UPS PIco HV3.0 A Stack 450 Plus” @ModMyPi but no assembly instructions. Where do all the non-soldered parts go when using RPi3? and a quick respons thread revealing I needed 03_0x38_W_UPS PIco HV3.0.pdf which – TADAAAA – is on Google drive and on the forums at [WayBackUPS PIco Firmware Update & Troubleshooting : Technical Support

So despite github providing an excellent platform for discussion and storing documentation, something archaic like a forum is used to store data in a disorganised way.

Too bad, as the document itself is 100+ page of invaluable documentation.

So in case of future bit-rot, here are the links:
