Making/Modifying a USB Hub Answered
I'm currently designing an accessory for my computer which will house 4 USB ports as a USB Hub. The issue i've got is I need to be able to contain the whole USB Hub in an area that is only 22mm deep and 170mm wide.
I've taken a cheap USB Hub apart to see what it was like and I have run into a few issues.
The main one is that the total depth of the PCB to the end of the USB Ports is 35mm, 13mm over the size I need.
The next issue is that I need room to place a screw between the USB Ports, 2 either side. These screws have a width of 3mm and a head size of 5mm. Putting a hole like that in the PCB would break and short the connections.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
