Case/Enclosure for Cluster?

Postby jhyland » Tue Sep 03, 2013 8:05 am

So I just purchased the Parallella Cluster kit, which contains 4 Parallella boards.

Has anyone found a conventional way to create some enclosure for more than just 1 of these?

Also, does anyone know the exact dimensions of the board, as far as where the mounting holes are that can be used to stack the boards?

I found this: http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/sick-o ... Path=55_60 and was hoping I could order a few of those, but id need to know the exact distances and sizes of the mounting holes on the parallella board that are used to stack them in this picture: http://www.parallella.org/wp-content/up ... 24x768.jpg

I think this one should fit, can anyone tell me for sure? http://www.parallella.org/wp-content/up ... 24x768.jpg

Heres some more info..

The board is exactly 90mmx56mm

And per the FAQ:
Mounting holes
3.2mm mounting holes in four corners, 4mm from center of hole to edge of PCB. These will fit 3mm (M3) screws and standoffs.

We recommend minimum 6mm keepout around mounting hole to leave room for the standoffs. Traces routed here might be damaged by case mounting hardware.

Our Eagle footprint includes a 3mm radius 41 tRestrict and 42 bRestrict with its center on each 4 holes, and additional corner keepouts.

I received the cases parts from the seedstudio and the build is overall OK from 2 cases parts. The holes are slightly different so I put some some rubber bands for holding the case though. That is only for single Parallella board. For 4 boards, I think you need some drilling works for matching the case holes to the PCB holes.
