The Dog House for BeagleBoard-xM is a sturdy, lightweight, powder-coated aluminum case for your BeagleBoard-xM. The Dog House by itself weighs just 4.5 ounces (127 grams). With the BeagleBoard-xM mounted, the package weighs less than 7 ounces. The case has a three-piece design including a lid, wrapper, and base plate.
Base The base is specially designed with built-in standoffs and 4-40 fasteners so your BeagleBoard-xM is perfectly aligned every time. It also makes assembling the enclosure simpler, and there's less hardware to handle. Two tabs on the base align with the lid, forming a tight fit that's secure and straight.
Mounting The built-in mounting feet let you screw or bolt the enclosure to almost anything in any orientation that suits your application — even upside down. You also can insert rubber feet (the type you often get with development boards) into the mounting feet of the Dog House so that you can set it on your desk and have a no-skid setup.
Finish The finished of the Dog House case for BeagleBoard-xM is a textured powder-coated aluminum that resists scratching and hides fingerprints. Because it is powder-coated, if you don't like black, you can paint over the powder coating and it will stick.
