Shorter UART connectors
« on: August 15, 2014, 11:41:41 am »
The pins on the board are ~7mm and the UART wire connectors are ~14mm.  This means you can't easily keep the wires connected and the cubieboard in its case.

I have looked on ebay, but have not found any wires with short, and probably fatter connectors.  Anyone know of any?

This was soo easy to fix with a pair of pliers.

Carefully bend the UART pins coming from the board.  Now, at an angle, the wires are low enough you can put the cover on the case.

Sheesh, was I over-thinking that one.
