Overview

PiKVM (https://pikvm.org/) is a very powerful and Open Source Software which allows for a remote connection via your Raspberry Pi to turn on/off or restart your computer, configure the UEFI/BIOS, and even reinstall the OS using the Virtual CD-ROM or Flash Drive. You can use your remote keyboard and mouse or PiKVM can simulate a keyboard, mouse, and a monitor, which are then presented in a web browser as if you were working on a remote system directly. It's true hardware-level access with no dependency on any remote ports, protocols or services!


Geekworm PiKVM family products:

Model Compatible with Work with X630 Remark
PiKVM-A3 Raspberry Pi 4 Model B YES
PiKVM-A8 Raspberry Pi 4 Model B YES PCIe version, No external wire
PiKVM-A4 Raspberry Pi zero 2 W YES

PS: PiKVM-A3 is also compatible with Raspberry Pi 3 B+ / 3B, but since Pi3 without OTG interface, when PiKVM-A3 is used with Pi3, OTG analog keyboard and mouse cannot be used.

Can a HAT expander cable be used with this case i.e. is there enough clearance for the connector, and for ribbon cable to get out of lid?

It looks as if there is a slot / cut-out but can't be sure about size and position from photos.

Hi, The case does not support extended GPIO cables because there is not enough space for the X630-A3 to the top of the case.

Hi, I have a PiKVM-A4 Kit (Pi Zero 2W) and LOVE it

Would it be possible to share a 3D model of the assembled boards so I can more easily design a case for it? Or maybe you already have an STL of a case you could share?

Thanks!

What gives with the Yellow part of the OLED display?

Thought it was just the demo picture, but also shows up on video and was commented on by purchaser on Aliexpress.

Hi,

Yellow part: iface eth0

The display can show the temperature, IP address and other information of the Raspberry Pi

With regards to the yellow apsect of the display, my point was this looks like a fault as part of the bottom of the 'iface: eth0' text is in blue. So the question is - is there a fault with the OLED connectivity?

Hi,

It is normal, no malfunction, because there are two colors. We will be replacing only one color to solve this problem.

Does the X630 HDMI to CSI bridge has HDMI backpower workaround so it can be used with KVM switch?

Can I support audio ?

1/The X630-A3 has an IS2 Audio In interface, which requires additional wiring to connect.

2/But currently the PIKVM system does not support audio. It depends on the system you are using.

3/The X630-A4 does not support audio.

Obviously this is a DIY / opensource version and the latter are enterprise solutions, but how does this compare to IPMI (or for Dell, iDRAC, and HP, ILo or Lights-out)?

Is the X630-A3 fan a 3-pin PWM fan that supports changing fan speed?
