Can you advice what kind of button to use for us non-savvy users?

I'll want to have the buttons on hand when I receive the board.

That is correct.
I am sorry I can't read Chinese characters. Could we wire the switch around 4 feet away from the board than?

Shouldn't be any problem wiring the switch 4ft feet away Smile

Hi all,

I'm looking for the switch that tllim posted at this website:
http://sg.element14.com

I'm not electronics trained, so it's kind of hard finding it.
Can anyone advise what keyword I should be searching for?

The keyword is 'tact switch':

http://sg.element14.com/webapp/wcs/store...sults=true

More specifically, if you want a switch similar to the one suggested by tllim (and it doesn't have to be identical any momentary switch should do), you want one like this:

http://sg.element14.com/panasonic-electr...dp/2079512

Note that this is not an exact match, but it's quite similar.

Thank you for the information! Much much appreciated!
Tllim mentioned in another thread that they have ordered this switch, and if it arrives on time, it will be sent to backers together with their kit. So I guess I'll be holding back on this purchase.

I live in Canada but they can probably all be found at amazon.com or ebay

You could probably use a PC ATX on/off switch. You would need to solder the male connector to the board. I have been looking for one but no luck so far. It should work as long as it fits. Maybe the devs can point us in the right direction? Smile

You can plug this cable at the EXT connector for reste and power on functions, please check pin definition on wiki page. When we define the EXT connector pin layout, we have factor in such cable combination.

Hi Tllim,

After I replied to the previous message I found a thread on power through GPIO with a  pdf of the pine 64 pin assignment and I noticed this on page 3 where the ext connector layout is listed.  Based on the information in the pdf it looks like pin 5 is the pwr switch and the cables are two pin so I am assuming that pin 6 is the ground for this connection. I take it the reset switch would also share the same ground?

   

Thanks

hi all,

i also got the tiny mini-power/re-set switch in the box (suggestion to Pine64 mfg. folk if they read this: maybe put it in the box a bit more securely and tape up the small cardboard box better? - it came tumbling out when i opened the box, and could have easily been lost in the mailing from slipping out through the crack in the box, just my suggestion).

i'm womdering — 
  • are there instructions or a video anywhere on how to attach it?
  • must it be sodered? i've also seen pics where the prongs were gently bent to hold it to the board?
  • i've tried putting it on the board through the holes, with it touching the connections in the right places, without sodering or bending the prongs/legs, but it doesn't seem to work like that?
if any of you could please advise on the above, i would appreciate it.

best,

Best to just solder it, if you are sure you want the power/reset switch mounted on the board like that. Bending the legs into place will never provide the secure connection you'll get from soldering. Besides, soldering is fun!

If you are scared to solder direct to the board, for fear of messing something up, you can still gain the functionality of power and reset switches by using the EXT series of connections (Page 3 of this). 

Just buy some DuPont wires and solder a switch to those. That way you don't need to solder direct to the board.
