Beagleboard standoff specificatons

Hello.

Before using my beagleboard, I wish to protect the bottom side of the
PCB by mounting standoffs.

Are there any mechanical specifications that the standoff kit must
conform to for mounting on the board?

I did not find this in Sec:5.18 of the Rev B5 reference manual.

Best regards,
SS

There are no specific specifications as the components on the back are very small and not that many. A quarter inch should be sufficient for a standoff.

I use quarter inch nylon standoffs in my acrylic cases.
Anything thinner would require trimming of a few tabs off connectors.

I used an ordinary, (#5?) standoff I found in my junk box. :slight_smile:

Mine were aluminum, but if you are really concerned then use nylon ones.
Initially I was worried about mechanical clearance with some components near the
holes, but Gerald did us right--- if you are careful during tightening, there is
plenty of room.
