Detailed Assembly Steps

Take out the RasPad, then flip it over to remove the back cover.


Below is an image of the internal structure of the RasPad.


Avoid pressing on the two speakers during assembly.


Connect the Ethernet port of the Raspberry Pi and the Main Board.


Connect the Raspberry Pi’s USB 3.0 port to the RasPad Main Board with the included USB cable.


Connect the two Micro-HDMI cables.


Cable A is slightly longer than Cable B.


Connect the USB-C cable.


Plug the FFC cable into the Micro SD card board.


Insert the Micro SD card board into the Raspberry Pi’s Micro SD card slot.


Insert the other end of the FFC cable into the RasPad button board.


Fix the Raspberry Pi with 4 M2.5x4 screws.


Attach the three heat-sinks to the Raspberry Pi, and insert the Accel SHIM module for the RasPad’s auto-rotate function.


To use the GPIO pins of the Raspberry Pi, connect a 40-pin GPIO ribbon cable to the Raspberry Pi, and route the ribbon cable out the top of the case.


Attach the fan onto the back cover with four PWA1.7X9 screws.


The logo faces out towards the exterior vent.


Connect the fan to the Main Board.


Attach the back cover with five M2.5x4 screws.


Do not force the back cover in place. If the enclosure is hard to connect, or the screw-holes do not line up correctly, please check that there are no internal components interfering with the fit before trying to reattach the back cover.
