These chips come in a pack of 2.
A drop-in replacement for the VL805 USB controller chip on the Raspberry Pi 4. Once installed, it then bridges the PCI-Express bus to the USB 3.0 ports, and with the help of a PCIe riser board (not included), allows connecting PCIe expansion cards.
This "chip" is a PCB with copper pads in the same locations as a real VL805 QFN68 IC package, then traces connecting the PCIe pads to the USB pads that connect to the upper USB 3.0 port. RESET, WAKE and a few other signals are also connected to the lower USB 3.0 port.
I am not responsible for any damage to your Raspberry Pi during the installation or use of this mod. A hot air rework station is required for the removal of the VL805 chip and placement of this chip.
Because who doesn't want to add PCIe expansion cards to their Pi?
