I want to have my Jetson TK1 development board enclosed in a box without access to the on-board power button. Is there a way to override it and have a button on the chassis of the box? (Without having to (un)solder any components on the board!)
So this is the board, right?
The one labeled ‘Front Panel’
So just get a momentary switch and hook it up to this header (pins 6 and 8 specifically)
Thanks a lot! Here’s the result: My Jetson TK1 in a box with a tailored aluminum front panel and the power switch on top.
Hi Chung, that’s a nice box that you’ve made. I noticed you are using a small LCD display. Could you share what LCD display that is and how successful you were at using it. Thank you.
"Is there a way to override it and have a button on the chassis of the box? (Without having to (un)solder any components on the board!) "
Yes. In the DeviceTree, there is an entry for linking the power button GPIO to a power on/off.
Just change this DT definition to the one you are using for your button (it must be attached to the GPIO lines obviously).
The header near the serial console D-sub connector which has color coding is a front panel header you can use just like the similar header on a desktop motherboard, e.g., with a power and reset button and I think also drive activity.
