The less dongles and adapters hanging off the back, or side of a machine, and the more put into a riser, the better. Tidier. Neater.

Hey yeah I’m a big fan of more options! If those options are open source and free as in free speech *and* free beer then so much the better! There is also nothing wrong with trying to make money off a closed source product if that product is well put together, solves a problem, and adds value. This is good old fashioned business is all.

The 7bits adapters are really besides the point quite frankly. I’m not here to argue one over the other. I’m simply pointing out the fact that to beat them to the punch adding composite usb devices support to the new riser would be the killer app and by far the preferred option of any CD32 owner looking for wireless nirvana.

I am super excited for anything new and as awesome as the tf accelerators. I bought two already and am delighted they even exit so I’m most definitely on team terriblefire here.

composite usb devices support
Out of the box composite devices will not happen. Drivers for those devices are most likely non standard. Unless there is super popular device which is worth writing stm32 driver for I can't see support for all of them.
Other limitation is hubs on stm32. This device seems that it cannot enumerate devices beyond hub as it is looks like it is designed to communicate only 1-2-1.

I think my next iteration of the board will have the current USB + a MAX USB chip too. So we can evaluate both approaches.
