Help on Hoda touch screen with Mini 9 with WWAN - 12-02-2009, 04:47 AM
I'm planning to get the touch screen from MDD, but most of the guides here assume that the WWAN space is not used. My Mini 9 came with the 5530 wireless broadband card (which I use all the time, so throwing it away is not an option). I'm currently looking at this thread, but truth be told I am not adept to hardware modifications such as rewiring and sanding off unnecessary parts. Is there some other space I can place the hub, or even an option of getting the touchscreen without the hub (which I assume will take much less space)?

the hub can fit in two places that aren't the WWAN:
where the bluetooth module lives or under the bottom plastic in the are where the backup battery is
check these two threads and you'll see the placements
More Space! (Relocating the touchscreen hub)

if you don't want to get that far into it. you could mount the hub/TS controller board in an external pod, like I placed my usb devices. you WILL need the small board for TS control, and the combined board that MDD sells, by HODA, is very small already.

one other comment is that the hub/TS board in the bluetooth area does get a little warm in that spot. there isn't a lot of air movement on the top side of the motherboard.
