The RPi USB Expansion & FT2232H Evaluation Module connects to a Raspberry-Pi computer via a single USB port, and expands the number of external USB ports to three; 2 via a dual USB connector and 1 via the DIL connector pins.
RPi HUB Module also provides a dual channel USB UART/245FIFO/SPI/I2C/JTAG/GPIO interface converter. Additionally, by utilising the FT2232H USB Hi-Speed dual-port bridge chip which handles all the USB signalling and protocols, the module can easily support up to two flexible interfacing ports. It is ideal for development purposes to quickly prove functionality of adding USB to a target design.
