Dual RAM plus fan with no IO Board

Unread post by Toshyboy »

Hi, quick question.

Is it possible to have dual ram and also connect the fan on the DE10 board?

I do not have the additional IO board. With single RAM, the fan connects to a 2 pin slot on the nano board. With dual ram, that slot is taken with the other ram stick.

Is there a solution other than getting the IO board?

These two work just fine:

I'm sure some other sellers have them too.

Ah, I see what you mean about the power connection. Scratch that, then

You could take power for the fan from the Arduino header on the DE10-Nano as opposed to the GPIO ports.

Hi, thank you for the suggestion.

I think would require a bit of soldering as there are no pins currently in the Arduino Header. I have also tried connecting the fan to the ADC Header 2x5 slots and no fan power. The LTC 2x7 Header, the fan connector doesnt fit so not able to test.

Its looking like it isnt possible without IO board?

What are you going to do with the dual RAM?

Sega Saturn Testing for now. Jaguar down the line maybe. Not essential. I just had a spare stick and was trying to make use of it really.

The Arduino connectors are just female rather than male pins. You don't need to solder, just use a dupont lead to connect the fan.
