2019 New NVIDIA Jetson Nano Metal Case Designed by Geekworm

What is NVIDIA Jetson Nano ?

NVIDIA Jetson Nano is an embedded system-on-module (SoM) and developer kit from the NVIDIA Jetson family, including an integrated 128-core Maxwell GPU, quad-core ARM A57 64-bit CPU, 4GB LPDDR4 memory, along with support for MIPI CSI-2 and PCIe Gen2 high-speed I/O.

NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit

Useful for deploying computer vision and deep learning, Jetson Nano runs Linux and provides 472 GFLOPS of FP16 compute performance with 5-10W of power consumption.

After spend a several month time design and development, Geekworm design and produce a metal case with power and reset control switch for this popular NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit. We see that at the current market there is no metal case, just acrylic case for the board. So we design a beautiful metal shell for the Jetson nano.

This is a metal enclosure specially designed for NVIDIA Jetson Nano, support to install power switch and reset switch, and reserve the GPIO hole and the installation space of the fan, and easily assemble it.

We do not prepare a cooling fan in the case, as we have tested so many fans, but won't meet the demand, if you need a cooling fan, you can refer to official recommend Noctua NF-A4x20 5V PWM fan. (We test this fan it is ok to use and a good choice.)This metal case is support to install a cooling fan, reserve 22mm high fan installation height, easy to install the official recommend fan.
The antenna hole is reserved to facilitate the arrangement of the external antenna. 

Also you can install an antenna on the case, but you need to buy an antenna yourself if you need to use it. You can also click the photo below to get one.

Q1:How to assemble this NVIDIA Jetson Nano case?
A: Please refer to the picture on our wiki:raspberrypiwiki.com/index.php/N100

Q2: Is it supported to install a cooling fan?
A: Yes, it is support for fan installation, 22mm high fan installation height is reserved. It is support  to install Noctua NF-A4x20 5V PWM fan. (We test this fan it is ok to use and a good choice.)

Q3: How do I use the jumper cap?
A: Because this case has a power switch, you need to disable the AUTO ON function first. Please insert the jumper cap into the AUTO ON position of the J40 pin to disable the AUTO ON function.(On the back of your board there is words " AUTO ON DIS")

We recommend that you read the introduction to the power supply in the official documentation before you assemble this case, thus you can understand deeply this case. Please refer to : developer.nvidia.com/embedded/learn/get-started-jetson-nano-devkit for NVIDIA Jetson Nano.
