Error in MinnowBoardMax Platform Guide

New Contributor I

The MinnowBoard Max Platform guide can be found:

https://www-ssl.intel.com/content/www/us/en/embedded/products/bay-trail/atom-e3800-minnowboard-max-platform-guide.html Intel® Atom™ Processor E3800 Product Family MinnowBoard MAX: Platform Guide

Page 10 shows six-pin header J4 to be able to connect to a terminal.

The following text is wrong:

Pin 1 is on the right in Figure 3, furthest away from the SATA port.

It should be:

Pin 1 is on the left in Figure 3, closest to the SATA port.

Based on this error, also the picture (reference Figure 5) on page 12 should be updated.

The black wire (GND pin 1) should be assembled closest to the SATA connector.

For explanation, see below the actual screen dump of the layout of the board.

Hello Carlos,

Thank you for your reply.

The information of this third party is correct. For example see:

http://wiki.minnowboard.org/MinnowBoard_MAX_HW_Setup MinnowBoard MAX HW Setup - MinnowBoard Wiki

Only the Intel document as mentioned above, which is listed on an Intel website is wrong.

Best regards,
