Add the Swiss-made YHUBSHL1 YoctoHub-Shield extension board when you need to connect more Yoctopuce modules than allowed on our network hubs. Connected on the network hub with a picoflex ribbon cable (included), it will allow you to connect 4 additional Yoctopuce modules to the network. The shield is powered directly through the picoflex ribbon cable so there is no need for a separate power supply.
The Yoctopuce modules may be connected to this shield using USB-OTG-MicroB-MicroB-20 cables, or using the more compact 1.27-1.27-11 cables (which require soldering). The devices can even be mounted directly on the shield (two on each side), and can be connected using Board2Board-127 connectors.
Warning: although the 4 downstream ports hosting Yoctopuce devices use USB micro-B connectors, the YoctoHub Shield use a specific protocol simpler than USB to talk to the devices. Therefore, a regular (non-Yoctopuce) device cannot be driven or even powered using the YoctoHub Shield. A regular USB hub (such as the Micro USB-Hub) can also not be used on the downstream ports. However, if you need even more downstream ports for Yoctopuce devices, you can daisy-chain multiple YoctoHub Shield.
USB cables and enclosure to be ordered separately.
