By nature, the system also brings a number of terminals. So the user can choose when connecting a display, for example, between HDMI, Display Port and VGA. Here one must, however, be limited to the integrated graphics units of CPUs, there simply is no space for an additional graphics card is present.

Furthermore, USB ports of versions 2.0, 3.0 and 3.1 are available as well as jacks for audio signals.

There are 5 USB ports including one USB 3.0 on the side of the unit next to the MicroSD card reader as well as a 3.5mm audio jack. The only thing missing is built in wireless LAN connectivity. While a Mini PCIe port is available to integrate the card of your choice, we feel it should have been built in.

Its connectors and serial port suggest that Giada i58B is great for use in PLCs or in digital signage. While the Core i5 5200U is an ultra low voltage processor with only 15 watt TDP, the heat is nonetheless dissipated by a fan.

To do this, the designer had to remove the doors from the original PCB of Raspberry because the motherboard does not have available ports on one side and thus he had to rewire all contacts to get them to get up to the bracket which also eliminated the Ethernet LAN because RaspPi Kiiboard only uses Wi-Fi. He was also kind enough to upload a video explaining this grueling process.

The key on the keyboard have a retro look which makes it look very unique. It clearly takes us back to the golden era of the Commodore VIC20, C64 or Amiga.
