This is an awesome little microSD card USB reader. Your uSD card slides into the inside of the USB connector, then stick this into a USB port and the card's contents will pop up on your computer. Very sneaky - we love it! Great for pulling data logs off microSD media. This reader also includes an indicator LED which will light up if a microSD card is present. This device is completely plug-and-play, no drivers needed.
Why is microSD sometimes called 'uSD'? It's an engineering thing. Mu ('μ') is a Greek letter that is often used in engineering. In electrical engineering it is commonly used to shorten capacitor sizes, such as 10μF. This is pronounced '10 micro-Farad'. Using that same terminology, we can shorten microSD to μSD, but we're just too lazy to figure out how to type μ, so instead we use 'uSD'.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.
