Raspberry Pi ready for HiFiBerry development


The HiFiBerry will be an add-on sound card for the Raspberry Pi. While you can connect it by an external USB connection, it will also be possible to mount it directly on the Raspberry Pi board. To do this, you have to remove the USB port and the audio and the video output. With a desoldering station this is relatively easy to do. Of course, the Raspberry is working without these connectors.

Pinout of the USB header

rpi-usbheader2Ethernet connector is on the top right of the board. Now looking the USB pins are used as follows:

1: GND 3: DATA1 + 5: DATA1 – 7: +5V
2: GND 4: DATA2 + 6: DATA2 – 8: +5V
