Introduction

  • The J6 expansion header on the PandaBoard allows for the addition of two USB host ports.
  • The pinouts for the USB host ports match that of a standard PC USB host expansion connector.


Materials

These are the materials you will need in addition to your Pandaboard.

The Red (VCC) wire will connect to J6 Pin 1 (USB Port 3) or 2 (USB Port 4)

The White (D-) wire will connect to J6 Pin 3 (USB Port 3) or 4 (USB Port 4)

The Green (D+) wire will connect to J6 Pin 5 (USB Port 3) or 6 (USB Port 4)

The Black (Gnd) wire will connect to J6 Pin 7 (USB Port 3) or 8 (USB Port 4)

The fifth pin (shield) is not connected.

Earlier versions of the Pandaboard had connections for the shield, but they were dropped in favour of some additional GPIOs.
