One can never have enough socks, or USB ports. Add some more USB and Ethernet capability to your Raspberry Pi Zero or, really, any kind of tablet or computer with an OTG connector with this USB 2.0 and Ethernet Hub!
This handy combo-hub has 3 USB 2.0 ports, and a AX88772A Ethernet transceiver. This chipset is really common and can be used by any Linux, Mac or Windows computer. It’s particularly handy for the Raspberry Pi Zero which is tight on USB ports and has no Ethernet out. We did some basic tests and got 11+ MB/s transfer speeds on our Pi Zero. Note that Ethernet draws a lot of power and you’ll be looking at 280mA current draw when the hub is plugged in, even if the Ethernet itself isn’t being used.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
