USB Shield electrical ground

Postby Jtrenalone » Thu Dec 25, 2014 4:08 am

Hello All,
I note on the schematic that the trace between the USB shield and the electrical ground should be cut, but I do not see this in the build instructions.

Should this trace be cut?
Thanks,
Joel

Hi Joel,
No, do not cut it. The schematic is only saying cut it if you want to disconnect the USB shield from electrical ground. I have not seen any posts about cutting the trace. If you are experiencing a ground loop or such, then cutting it may be a solution.
