Assemble ODroid XU4 Board Stack
These instructions show how to assemble a stack of Odroid XU4 boards for your PicoCluster.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you encounter any difficulties.
Step 1 – Prepare the Boards
Open the packages as shown. The XU4 comes with it's own heat sink and cooling fan.
Step 2 – Assemble the Board Stack
Start with the 1/2" F/F standoffs on the bottom and the 1" M/F standoffs on the top as shown. Once screwed together, then tighten slightly. The standoffs only need to be snug, not wrenched tight together.
Continue to add boards to the stack using the 1" M/F standoffs as shown.
There is no PDU for the XU4 as it uses a 5V power supply directly. An acrylic top plate is used on the top of the of the board stack for stability.
Power cables are not attached at this stage because there is no PDU. Power will be attached during the Cube assembly stage.
Next Steps – Assemble Your Cube
Move on the the assembly instructions for your particular cluster cube. The Pico 10 requires 2 board stacks and the Pico 20 requires 4 board stacks.
