Question about Installing SODIMM memory on ZCU104 board

Jump to solution

Hi,

I have recently purchased a ZCU104 evaluation board and have been planning to install a SODIMM memory on it since it is not provided by the vendor and it has an empty slot. The issue is that the memory slot is covered by a holey metal cage ( I guess for soft errors!) and I do not know how to remove this metal cage without damaging the board. I was wondering if there is a correct method to remove this metal cage or I just have to loosen up the pins that hold it in place and remove it.\

 

Thanks.

Hello @shayanmo

Yes opening that metal cage is the only option for you.

Even though from top view it looks like you can't remove it; with little force it should be possible. 

Brute force surely will help...!!!

Thank you
