Why is Brownout Detection disabled in the firmware

  • According to this you are using the sdkconfig of /examples/wifi/scan of the IDF.
    In this configuration file brown out detection is disabled.

    Why is it disabled? Won't this cause issues during startup or shutdown?

    I am asking because we had issues in the past with a different microcontroller where enabling BOD fixed a bug that scrambled the internal flash sometimes during startup.

  • I've queried our firmware team about this and the response was:

    The IDF had a bug there at the beginning, so we disabled it
    He is welcome to enable it and submit a pull request
