Dave Jones of the EEVblog has a great video that goes into detail about what happens when you flash a Raspberry Pi 2 with a xenon camera flash. What seems like a mysterious force that locks up the board is actually a well-known and famous phenomenon, the photoelectric effect. Check out Dave’s video for a deeper explanation of the photoelectric effect and how it can impact the circuitry of the Pi 2.
