Description
The WR703N Expander is a compact PCB providing a 4 port USB hub and dual FTDI serial ports, with additional GPIO.  It is perfect for use with the small TP-Link WR703N Linux based wireless router, or with almost any computer with USB (e.g. PC, Raspberry Pi, BBB, etc).  The USB hub makes it easy to add a USB flash drive to expand the routers internal flash storage, and provide connection of additional USB devices (webcam, keyboard, sound, co-processor, etc), while the serial ports and GPIO allow versatile connectivity to other devices.
 
It was designed by Kean Electronics in conjunction with Robots & Dinosaurs for control and automation projects, and has been used in various designs such as robotics, smart LED lighting control, and wireless sharing of quadcopter webcams.
 
 
Features
  • Compact size - designed to piggy back above WR703N router PCB
  • Uplink USB port can be via mini-B, or 4 pin header to connect to WR703N
  • 3 available USB ports with alternate connection options (4 pin header or USB A female)
  • 2 FTDI virtual COM (serial) ports – using common 6 pin FTDI pinout (with RTS/CTS)
  • Selectable 3.3V or 5V I/O voltages for Port A and Port B
  • 8 GPIO (part of Port A) – see GPIO pinout below
  • EEPROM for use with FTDI FT_PROG configuration utility
  • Incorporates FTDI MPSSE functions – allows SPI/I2C/JTAG emulation (e.g. see FTDI App Note AP_135)
  • Can be powered from WR703N, or supply power to WR703N (short R113 on router)
  • Works with most operating systems (FTDI driver required)
  • Open source hardware design
  • Info on OpenWRT and the WR703N available at http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/tp-link/tl-wr703n and http://www.madox.net/blog/projects/tp-link-tl-wr703n/

Does the "Ink"Color Bag have silver tone hardware? (Chain)? It is hard to tell in photo

I bought the black one and the chain is gold color. Not sure of the ink bag.

You need a WiFi Internet connection, and a smartphone or tablet for the Echo App. That's it. It is easy to set up, but it may take you a while to figure out all of the little things that the Echo App can do.

BEWARE this is NOT STEREO and it is NOT MONO. This is only one channel. You will not hear part's of songs (recorded in stereo) that are only played through the left channel. Kinda ridiculous. Still it is a decent sounding speaker.

★★★★★ Great bag
Purchased this for my 23 year old daughter in the butterscotch color. Great versatile color. She loves the size -- perfect for day or going out at night. Chain can be double to shorten for nighttime and left long to wear as a crossbody during the day.
