Beaglebone black USB port and USB hub

by iPat16 on Wed Aug 31, 2016 11:57 am

Hello,

I would like to know if it's possible to connect a USB hub to the Beaglebone black's USB port to use more than one USB devices. Example: I would like to connect a Wifi adapter, keyboard, mouse, etc.

I saw on their website that it is possible to use a USB hub to connect the Wifi adapter because the ground causes interference with the Wifi. But they didn't say anything about using more than one USB device on the USB hub.

Thanks for your help!

Yeah, you can use multiple devices with a USB hub connected to the BeagleBone Black.

I use this hub with my BBB and recommend it:
USB 2.0 Powered Hub - 7 Ports with 5V 2A Power Supply
