USB Mini-B connector breakout board, bottom view with dimensions.

This board breaks out the VBUS, GND, D-, D+ and ID pins of a USB Mini-B connector. The VBUS and GND pins can be used to power your project from USB, while the D- and D+ pins give you access to the USB’s differential data signal. Each of these pins, along with the ID pin, are broken out into a 1×5 row of 0.1"-spaced pins on the board. The included 1×5 straight male header can be soldered to these pins to allow the board to be used with perfboards, solderless breadboards, and 0.1" connectors.

This tiny unit measures only 0.52" × 0.85" (0.55" × 0.85" including its USB mini-B connector) and has four 0.086" diameter mounting holes for #2 or M2 screws.

We also carry a USB Micro-B connector breakout board, and we have two power muxes that double as USB Micro-B breakout boards: the FPF1320 carrier and the TPS2113A carrier. These latter two power multiplexers make it easy to have a device that can be powered from both USB and an external supply.
