That (big) button seems pretty cool!
Yup, that's what's on my Ultra board and in addition to full power/reset control, it's a nice indicator of HDD activity. Purchase that along with this fan (until Udoo starts shipping the fan add-ons) while you're at it:
hi can u tell me how u did this? i want to put the udo in a case and i would like to add a button becaue i cant use the button on the board if its inside the case
You can attach an external switch to the front panel header https://www.udoo.org/docs-x86/Hardware_Reference/Overview.html
Are you referring to the information on the upper right corner of page 22 of the schematic diagrams?
Is there a diagram of the female mating jack to header connector CN25 showing how the external power switch connects? That would be useful.
Is installing an external on/off button simply a matter of connecting an external momentary push-button between CN25 pins 5 and 6 paralleling SW2?
All the info can be found in the user manual (pdf) par 3.3.6 page 30.
Please, Udoo team @Laura , put the information of the pdf in the hardware reference part of the online documentation!!!
The User Manual does indeed provide the information:
So, it would appear from the User Manual, that an external momentary, normally-open push-button can be wired to header CN25 pins 5 & 7. This is useful for users of the KKSB Udoo X86 case as mentioned in this thread.
Thank you for your generous and kind assistance.
What do you think of usuing this power supply on ebay
Universal 12V 24-360W 2/5/10/20/30A Switching Power Supply Driver for LED Strip https://www.ebay.com/itm/222316447845?var=521160668449
5.5 X 2.1mm Barrel Power 12V Male DC Power Jack Adapter Plug https://www.ebay.com/itm/152782116388
Then I can add power for the Harddrive with the other connectors. this PS should have enough power for lots of stuff.
