Lift up the bottom piece and thread the M3 nuts onto the bolts.

Step 3: Insert Buttons into Clips

*NOTE: Some A13-OLinuXino Boards were manufactured with larger buttons than the one that we used for the case design. If your board has larger buttons, use the shorter acrylic buttons included in your hardware pack.

Insert 5 of the buttons into the clip as shown in the image below.

Grab the 2 IDE side pieces, 2 buttons and the 2 close end clips.

Insert the 2 close ended clips into the IDE side pieces and slid the buttons into them as shown in the images below.

Step 4: Start Assembling the Case

Take the top piece and set it out as shown below.

IMG_3217 ready

Insert the buttons upside down with the clip facing outward.

Step 5: Attach the IDE Sides

Place the IDE Sides on as shown making sure to get the buttons into the holes in the top piece.

You should now be able to pick up the assembly like so:

Be sure to not put too much pressure on the top pieces as it could cause the IDE sides to pull out of the snaps.

Step 6: Install the Bottom

Install the bottom piece into the slots on the VGA/ SD Card/ Audio In-Out side. It is best to do this at a slight angle so that the 5 acrylic buttons don't run into the sides of the buttons on the PCB.

Step 7: Install USB side

Put the USB side on and snap in the clips.

Step 8: ENJOY!

Congratulations! You now have a fully assembled enclosure for your A13-OLinuXino Board that should look something like this:

    0Actually, efficiency is more imrotpant than power, but in mobile computing, power is also efficiency.To quote from my article:While it’s almost universally agreed that power efficiency is a priority for these processors, many criticize the amount of processing power these new chips are bringing to mobile devices, and ask why so much performance is necessary. Whether or not mobile applications actually need this much power is not really the concern however; improved processing and graphics performance with little to no additional increase in energy needs will allow future phones to actually be much more efficient in terms of power. This is because ultimately, power efficiency relies in a big part on the ability of the hardware in the phone to complete a task quickly and return to an idle state where it consumes very little power. This “burst” processing, while consuming fairly high amounts of power for very short periods of time, tends to be more economical than prolonged, slower processing. So as long as ARM chipset manufacturers can continue to crank up the performance while keeping power requirements low, there’s nothing but gains to be had.
