I'm facing problem, with ch341 uart chip. ch341 works normally at startup for about 120seconds. After that it disconnects. I'm attaching dmesg bellow.

What it could be a problem? Tried with different healthy cables, connects to Windows PC without any problem...

  • I didn't have problems with a CH340 based converter. Since they are cheap, I would just test a different model, or perhaps your unit is just faulty.

Check the voltage on your Raspberry Pi. This happens to me when there is a power outage and the Pi is sustained on its miniature UPS. I would also look for lines such as:

[142765.198823] Under-voltage detected! (0x00050005)

It could be that the power supply you are using to power your raspberry pi, is not powerful enough.

  • It was bad PCB tracks and also bad solder connection.
