VU7plus, C4 and HDMI link board

Post by Sebas_Ledesma »

Hi:

We are using the VU7-Plus and VU7a-Plus with the Odroid C2 in a product.
We are connecting them with the HDMI link board as show in labelled 'E':

This allows to save space and ensure a more firmly attach.

Now we are moving to the Odroid C4 and as the Odroid C4 has a different placement for the HDMI connector we want to know if it will be an updated HDMI Link to use the C4 with the VU7a Plus.


Thanks in advance,
Sebas

I was wondering the same thing. For me, on the C4, to get the VU7A working I had to plug in the included HDMI cable then I needed to plugin both the USB(C4) to microUSB(VU7A) and microUSB(C4) to the top right microUSB(VU7A). The regular USB cable seems to have provided power while the micro to micro cable allows the touchscreen to work. Certainly it's going to be difficult to put a tablet together with all those cables hanging out. :-(

Odroid:

Can you provide us with the CAD file of the VU7a+/VU7a display?
We are evaluating making our own HDMI link but we will like to have the exact mechanical dimensions.
The wiki of VU7a+ dont include the HDMI position in the 'dimensions section':
https://wiki.odroid.com/accessory/displ ... /vu7a_plus

Also, do you have a recommended provider for the HDMI connector?

Thanks in advance.

The Vu7/Vu5 series were developed by a third party company, we don't have any CAD file on our hands.
But we will try to give you a useful data file soon.

Thanks for the gerber files. Our mechanical guy is working with them.

Odroid: where we can buy those components? So we can make our own link-board (for HDMI and OTG).

Thanks in advance.

Do anybody have a ready design for this two link board (HDMI + Micro USB) between Odroid C4 and VU7A+ ?
If yes then I would greatly appreciate it if you could at least attach the production files (gerber + drill).
If not or not granted to publish them, then I have to design both, but I hope somebody did it before.. ;)

Thnx in advance.

Give us a couple of days to make a decision if we can build the adapter boards or not.
