In line with my other projects I need to make a USB hub attachment for the Pi Zero.
Seeing as the community figured out that the Raspberry Pi Design team was clever enough to leave us D+ and D- test points at the bottom, I came up with this design above.
See those pads for D+, D-, gnd and 5v? Yip, the ide is that you can acually reflow this board onto the back of a Pi Zero!
Where’s the Gerbers? I haven’t uploaded the gerbers to Github yet, since I only finished the Eagle drawing a few mins ago. Eagles are off to DirtyPCBs.com, and once I tested the board, I’ll upload.
This is a 4 Port USB2.0 hub designed around the TI TUSB2046B
