    I'm trying to find a USB2 hub IC which I can hand solder but I'm struggling to find one :(
    Due to the number of pins on these devices coupled with my soldering ability, I think I'm limited to SOIC or PLCC packages.

    Any suggestions?

    Hehe, I guess this is a tricky (impossible?) one.

    Other options would include locating a small enough pre-made bit of kit and taking it apart I guess, but that does limit my box to whatever shape PCB I can find. If someone knows of one around the size of a Raspberry PI (I've given the game away now!) then that's be great.

    Edit:
    Price is also important in this project.

    Nice one, thanks :)
    Not too many pins to do on the 32pin version :)
