In this first lesson, you will go through the process of unboxing your computer on module and carrier board and assembling the hardware.
A block diagram of the system setup and its connections is presented below for reference.

A headless setup is possible, though in the Quickstart Guide we will always assume that you have a recommended display attached to the carrier board. If you proceed without a display, skip the lessons that make use of it at your own discretion. As an option, you can follow the Torizon Documentation - just be aware you will not find a walkthrough as thorough as this guide.
Note: Carefully read this module's cover page clicking on "Module 1: Unboxing and Bring-up" on the left menu bar before starting this lesson.
Remove the Verdin Development Board and the Verdin Computer on Module from the blisters. Insert the computer on module into the X1 connector of the Carrier Board as tight as possible, with the module inclined ~30 to 45 degrees in relation to the carrier board.
Warning: Make sure that the module is well connected to the carrier board. The image below has some checkpoints highlighted.
Connect the Verdin DSI to HDMI Adapter to the board on the following slot:
After you connect the
adapter, the board will look like the following:
According to the Verdin Family Specification, the MIPI DSI and the HDMI interfaces are exposed on reserved pins, meaning that if they are available they will always be exposed on fixed, predefined pins, on the Verdin SODIMM edge connector.
Notice that it is not guaranteed that all Verdin SoMs will have either interface.
The MIPI DSI is the primary display interface, and the HDMI is the secondary display interface. Due to it, on this Quickstart Guide, we use HDMI through the DSI to HDMI adapter whenever MIPI DSI is available, regardless of native HDMI being present as well.
Note: Ethernet network must provide DHCP and Internet to the module.
Attention: Double check that your power supply is within the Verdin Development Board limits (7-27V) and that the polarity is not inverted. Also, make sure that the current capability of the power supply is enough, or the system may shut down unexpectedly. For evaluation purposes, a 12V 2A power supply is recommended.
Screw the Verdin Industrial Heatsink on top of the SoM, using the screws that come with it:
