Reconnect with out physical removal

I am using digirig with direwolf on Linux Mint. Occasionally the digirig usb connection will disconnect. Right now I physically remove the usb cord and reinsert in. My computer will recognize the device and then I can restart direwolf.

Often I access the computer remotely and I am not there to disconnect and reconnect the cord. Is there a way to restart the usb connection without physically disconnecting the digirig and reconnecting it?


There is a /RESET signal that can be pulled to ground and that will reset USB hub and UART in Digirig. The alternative is to interrupt 5V power coming via USB. See the schematic at the end of this post: Digirig Mobile Rev 1.9 – digirig
