Different options are planned

The options considered will be available depending on the initial funding of the project.

As funds become available, other options may be implemented.

The battery option

This option will allow you to make your Diskio Pi machine transportable. Battery packs are custom-made, and deliver a current of 7.4V. As the technology used is LiPo (lithium polymer), an internal electronic circuit is used to improve safety and prevent short circuits.

This option, consisting of 3 packs (6 LiPo cells), is delivered with a gauge card. This gauge will operate with a micro-switch button and activate an RGB (multicolored) LED that will change color according to the charge level of the cells. As this map has not yet been developed, the funding will also be used to study this map.

The capacity of each pack is 3500 mAh, so a total of 10500 mAh will be available to run the screen and a Raspberry Pi about 10 hours, or 8h30 hours in charge.

Battery life depending on the type of SBC board and use:

The cooling option

This option is still under development. It will take the form of a 25x25mm radiator, and a 5V or 12V fan. The advantage of the 12V, powered by 7.4V~9V will be to reduce the noise compared to the current 5V which is relatively noisy at high speed.

The sensor system is already in use, the sensor used has the reference KTY81/121 (Datasheet)

Cooler-fan-heatsink

Another solution (only Raspberry Pi 3) would be to choose a passive radiator, which uses a large area of the board without being too high. This product exists on eBay, it could also be distributed by Diskio Pi.

Passive cooler for Raspberry Pi 3

It is always possible to combine this cooler with a flat fan for optimum cooling. The cost would be higher, depending on the fan chosen. Other systems exist, free for the user to choose the lowest possible and most efficient solution !

L'option VESA

Vue logicielle de l'option VESA

Cette option sera une plaque métallique fabriquée sur mesure, compatible VESA 75.

Fixation: avec 5 vis sur la coque, dont 4 vis avec écrou.

Actuellement, elle n'a pas encore été prototypée. Des échantillons doivent être fabriqués pour tester la résistance du plastique et la tenue générale de l'ensemble.

L'option SATA

Toujours en prévision, cette option comprendra:

  • PCB convertisseur SATA vers USB 3.1
  • Coins caoutchouc
  • Plaque et vis de fermeture

L'option SATA

Les disques compatibles seront soit des HDD, soit des SSD. Il faudra néanmoins une consommation inférieure à 1A.

Les autres options

D'autres options sont prévues en fonction du développement du projet, comme de nouvelles cartes L.
