One can never have enough socks, or USB ports. Add some more USB capability to your Raspberry Pi Zero, or any other single-board computer with the Zero4U!
This is a 4-port USB 2.0 hub, almost identical to this one, but without the ferrite bead, standoffs or pogo pins. This might be a preferable format if you want to mount it on the bottom or side-by-side or with another HAT below it. It’s also great as-is as a small USB hub.
Since this version does not have the pogo pins, we recommend using the onboard mini-USB port to the up-stream USB port, which will provide power and data. Or, you can solder to the test pads or use the JST XH2.54 connector on board as the power input port.
The blue onboard LED is the power indicator, and will light up when power is connected. Each USB port uses a dedicated white LED as a transaction indicator, and a dedicated electrolytic capacitor to help stabilize the output voltage.
Note: This is just the USB hub board. If you need one with standoffs, spacers, and pogo pins, take a look here!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
