How to connect our PCB v2

First of all, please follow below instructions to make required modifications to your mainboard (click on your mainboard name near “+” to get additional details).

BeagleBoard
You should install headers J4 and J5 on BOTTOM side of BeagleBoard. You can add these headers as an option to any product in our web-shop.
BeagleBoard-xM
Modification is not required.
PandaBoard
You should install headers J1 and J4 on BOTTOM side of PandaBoard. Also, you should remove 28 resistors on top side (R40-R43, R45, R46, R48-R53, R64-R73, and R80-R85), and install 33 Ohm resistors R176-R203 on bottom side of mainboard. See pp.32-36 in PandaBoard System Reference Manual for details. You can add these headers and resistors as an option to any product in our web-shop.
PandaBoard-ES
You should install headers J1 and J4 on BOTTOM side of PandaBoard-ES. You can add these headers as an option to any product in our web-shop.

 

Our LVDS PCB is connected through two Parallel LCD Expansion Headers on the bottom side of mainboard. They are:

  • J4 and J5 for BeagleBoard
  • P11 and P13 for BeagleBoard-xM
  • J1 and J4 for PandaBoard
  • J1 and J4 for PandaBoard-ES

Connect LCD data and power connectors to LVDS PCB v2 like on drawing 1. Pin 1 is marked by white dot on data connector, and has rectangular shape on PCB. Power connector has key and can’t be inserted wrongly. Place PCB v2 to your mainboard. Please, pay attention that LCD and power connector on our PCB should be pointed toward center of motherboard (click drawing 2). You should get connection like on drawing 3 (BeagleBoard-xM is shown).
