===Model B Revision 2.0===
 +
Based on a new PCB layout that includes previous build fixes from ECN0001 such us removal of the poly-fuses in series with the +5V power for USB devices, and other fixes reported by the community such as the erroneous connection of the LAN9512 VDD18CORE pins to the +1V8 power plane, addition of the 8-pin P5 header (non-populated) for extra GPIO pins, addition to the 2-pin P6 header (non-populated) for a RESET button, and other changes and improvements reported in more detail <ref name="REV2.0">[http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/1929 Upcoming Board Revision]</ref>.
 +
 
 +
===ECN0001===
 +
ECN0001 is the request to not fit D14 and replace F1 and F2 with 0 ohm.
 +
====D14 Removal====
 +
D14 can interfere with some CEC devices if the Pi is left plugged in and unpowered.  The benefits of having it are minimal so it was removed.<ref name="D14">[http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=16365 New Pi missing D14]</ref>
 +
 
 +
====F1 & F2 Replacement/Removal====
 +
F1 & F2 can cause problems with some USB devices which draw high current.  In particular due to the recovery characteristics of the Poly-fuses, it can take a while to recover their low resistance state afterwards, adding additional problems for other devices (lower voltage on the USB bus).

Model B Revision 2.0

Based on a new PCB layout that includes previous build fixes from ECN0001 such us removal of the poly-fuses in series with the +5V power for USB devices, and other fixes reported by the community such as the erroneous connection of the LAN9512 VDD18CORE pins to the +1V8 power plane, addition of the 8-pin P5 header (non-populated) for extra GPIO pins, addition to the 2-pin P6 header (non-populated) for a RESET button, and other changes and improvements reported in more detail [1].

ECN0001

ECN0001 is the request to not fit D14 and replace F1 and F2 with 0 ohm.

D14 Removal

D14 can interfere with some CEC devices if the Pi is left plugged in and unpowered. The benefits of having it are minimal so it was removed.[2]

F1 & F2 Replacement/Removal

F1 & F2 can cause problems with some USB devices which draw high current. In particular due to the recovery characteristics of the Poly-fuses, it can take a while to recover their low resistance state afterwards, adding additional problems for other devices (lower voltage on the USB bus).
