Topic: A question about the two USB jacks. (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


I recently received my DUE :D and I have a couple micro USB cables on their way. I was just looking over the board and noticed that the USB slots are shaped just slightly different. The native port is rectangular and the programming port id "D" shaped. Will I need two different USB plugs?

Thanks for any replies,


The Native USB port on the Due uses a Micro-AB connector.  It was designed to work with both a standard USB Micro-B cable and a USB Micro-A cable.  The Native USB port can act as a USB host port.  To operate in Host mode, you will need to use a special USB Female-A to Micro-A OTG (On The Go) cable.  But for normal serial communications and programming all you need is the standard USB Micro-B cable for either USB port.
