The CSB502SSD Shield plugs into the Raspberry PI 2 GPIO connector together with converts the Raspberry PI 2 USB Host Port into a 1TB mSATA SSD Drive together with Wireless Access Point thank yous to Soft-AP back upwards (the shield literary transforms the Raspberry PI 2's 802.11b/g/n WiFi module into a WiFi access signal for your WiFi devices to connect to the Internet).
The shield equally good increases the 1.2A USB stock ability of the Raspberry Pi 2 to 1.5A at 5V (dual USB 2.0 mounted on the board). The ability to the Raspberry Pi 2 is fed through the shield together with so in that place is no ask for an additional ability root attached to the Pi 2 (the ability provide is broad input 5V @ 10A, which powers all peripherals equally good equally the Raspberry PI 2).
The CSB502SSD shield interacts alongside the Raspberry PI via a 40-Pin GPIO connector equally well
equally 1 USB host port; hence the shield volition piece of employment alongside whatever Raspberry PI that has the 40-pin GPIO connector such equally the Raspberry Pi B+ together with Raspberry Pi A+.
