What I need to order

Aster Carrier Board can be ordered along with Colibri System on Modules.

Do I need anything else in addition?

Since Aster can be USB powered, the simplest setup possible requires only:

  • Cables: USB Micro-AB to Type-A (receptacle), Jumper Wire to short-circuit JP1.

Powering through USB will limit the total amount of power available. We recommend using an external power supply when using a lot of power for e.g. display or other peripherals, since this setup isn't USB compliant.

Warning: Do not short-circuit the jumper JP1 if you are using an external power supply: it will cause the external supply and the USB supply to be shorted.

Where do I order

All the products can be ordered online at Toradex Webshop
