MiSTer Sidecar USB Case

Postby NegSol » Sun Jul 29, 2018 5:42 pm

MiSTer Sidecar USB case add-on usable with MiSTer USB Hub v1.1 daughter board

Sidecar will work with MiSTer - Case Universal v5.2.

Slowly iterating the design. Sorry for taking so long. :shrug:

Today I did my first physical testing of the add-on case.

Not quite there yet ...

so close.. USB cut-outs are too small and have to be slightly enlarged in the next version. Also the panel bracket idea is not yet working. Maybe needs another re-design. I will keep you updated. :angel:

Edit: It is released now:

I did some minor tweaks and now everything fits perfectly. Tolerance are tight but it even works without additional screws. I will leave the screw holes is anyway, just in case it develops slip over time.

Expect the files in the next days... :mrgreen:

I released the 3D models. I also made a video showing you how to put it together. I currently only use four screws for the pcb mounting.

It also works for all models of the big universal cases (v5.2 and v1.2). XS cases are not supported though.

Off topic but I couldn't help but notice the tape over the power light of one of your switches. It's one of those ridiculously strong LEDs right? I wonder why there's so many devices with those...

Yes – it is an inexpensive hdmi switch and the brightness of those LEDs are too much. I did forget it was there until you mentioned it :)
