Ethernet

To use the Ethernet port, a magjack and capacitor need to be connected.

This is currently available only as a DIY project using this OSH Park Shared Circuit Board. PJRC is planning to offer this as a DIY kit in the near future.

These parts are recommended to build the Ethernet connection.

1 Ethernet Magjack RB1-125BAG1A, Mouser 950-RB1-125BAG1A, Digikey 1278-1011-ND
2 Header, 3x2, 2mm pitch Digikey 1849-1000-ND
2 Socket, 3x2, 2mm pitch Amphenol FCI 89361-706LF, Digikey 609-3139-ND
1 Ribbon Cable, 3 to 6 inch Digikey HF06S-5-ND
1 Capacitor, 0.1uF, 805
1 Capacitor, 1uF, 805 probably not needed
1 Capacitor, 1nF, 805 optional, should be high voltage rated if used
1 Resistor, 1M optional
1 Circuit Board OSH Park Shared PCB

Memory Expansion

The bottom side of Teensy 4.1 has locations to solder 2 memory chips.

The smaller location is meant for a PSRAM chip. The larger location is intended for flash memory.

 

USB Host

Teensy 4.1's USB Host port allow you to connect USB devices, like keyboards and MIDI musical instruments. A 5 pin header and a USB Host cable are needed to be able to plug in a USB device.

USB hubs may be used if more than 1 device is needed. See the USBHost_t36 examples for details.
