Hard wiring a B+

Fri Aug 22, 2014 1:30 pm

The problem is a micro USB connector sticks out way to far! Even a right angled one! Removing the outer casing of the USB connector leaves some very fragile wiring.

I want to hard wire a B+ board without bypassing protection.

I thought about wiring to PP3 and PP7 but really not sure??

No, PP7 is wired after the fuse!

Possibly you'd need to power via the GPIO header, but add your own "protection" ?

PP1 and PP2 are 5V from the micro_USB before the fuse!

Great, thanks, I'll try that as it seems the simplest way.
