Certain integration scenarios require custom enclosures, such as when additional devices need to be installed in the same enclosure as the computer. To support these use cases, SolidRun has developed the deck-of-cards concept. SoM, NIO, SX, and PM are rigidly held together with fasteners, independent of the Bedrock enclosure.
The deck provides a primary cooling stage for most devices, notably including a copper heat plate on the CPU. The deck is attached to the custom enclosure with only 3 screws. The fastening ensures thermal coupling with the CPU, RAM, NVMe, and FETs. The DC input connector is on wires and can be routed within the enclosure.
