How to connect
1) There are two jumper caps in the screws pack. ①Because this case has a power control switch, you need to disable the AUTO ON function firstly. Please insert one jumper cap into the “AUTO ON” position of the J40 pin to disable the AUTO ON function. ②Another Jumper cap is used to toggle the power supply between Micro USB and DC Jack. Insert this jump cap in "J48" Pin to disable Micro USB PWR to power (enable the DC 5V 4A jack PWR). The power control switch should be insert into “ON” pin at J40. And the blue and white cable of power control switch need to be insert in “3.3V” and “GND” pin at J41.
2) The reset switch should be insert in “RST” pin at J40. Please refer to the photo3 at the back.
3) A camera bracket is added for raspberry pi official camera, can fix the camera on the top or side of the case, adjust the camera position as your requirement. Please refer to the photo1 at the back.
About cooling fan
The case is reserve 22mm high fan installation height , it is recommend to use Noctua NF-A4x20 5V PWM fan, we prepair 4 pcs PM2.5*22 screws and 4 pcs M2.5 nuts and 4 pcs gaskets to install this fan. You need to use the ABS tweezers when you install this fan. Please see the video.
About camera bracket(NEW)
We provide a new camera bracket to setup the camera although you can also mount the camera on the rear panel of the case. Since we don't know the camera you are using, so this bracket hole is only compatible with the size of the Raspberry Pi official camera. You can also choose the installation location of your camera bracket.

Q:How to assemble this case?
A: Please read the following picture or refer to wiki: raspberrypiwiki.com/N100
Q: Is it supported to install a fan?
A: Support for fan installation, 22mm high fan installation height reserved
Q: How do I use a jumper?
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.
Q: Why was the MICRO SD card slot cancelled?
A: N100-V9 is compatible with both A02 and B01 versions now. We must increase the distance between the JETSON NANO motherboard and the front panel of the case to install the switch. We found that even if we kept the TF card slot, we couldn’t insert the TF card by hand or plastic tweezers, so we have to cancel this card slot; We hope that the official NVIDIA will adjust the position of J50 in subsequent versions.

Q: How to choose the right power supply?
A: JETSON NANO supports two kinds of interface power supply: Micro USB power adapter and DC Jack power adapter; You can choose different power adapter by controlling the jumper of J48; We strongly recommend that you use DC Jack PSU, because DC Jack can provides greater current input than Micro USB.
