Raspberry Pi Zero 4 Port USB Hub – Open Source PCB Design

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

  • Directly solderable to Pi Zero USB+PWR pads
  • Cutout for GPIO pin bottoms
  • Screw holes match Pi Zero
