broken componant on Odroid - X

Unread post by jbates58 » Sun Mar 17, 2019 12:56 pm

hi all.

its been a long time since i hace been here. i am wanting to use my faithfull old Odroid - x for a small project here at home, however, i have noticed that there seems to be some corosion on what i think is the super cap on the CPU board. i will put up some photos, but im hoping that someone can tell me if it will work without it, ot if i can replace it with something to substitute it.

cheers

Jason

Carefully remove the super-capacitor with a good soldering iron.
There is no negative side effect other than the RTC backup feature.

Hi jbates58,

The super capacitors used in the ODROD-X board are not 100% the same, but can be purchased from the mouser on the link below the replacement XH414HG IV01E.

https://www.mouser.com/datasheet/2/360/ ... 202874.pdf

Good luck to you.

BR,
Ruppi
