USB DIY Connector Shell - Type Micro-B Plug - Pinouts

by jrguzik on Fri Jun 07, 2013 12:51 pm

Does the new USB DIY Connector Shell - Type Micro-B Plug have solder tabs for all 5 pins or just the power and data pins?
The picture for the connector shell appears to show 5 solder tabs, but without a datasheet I can't be sure.

Also will the "mini B (coming soon)" have all 5 pins as well?

I purchased a MintyBoost (love it) and would like to use it to charge my Garmin 500 while on long bicycle rides. Unfortunately the Garmin 500 requires a resistor between the ID pin and ground. A mini-USB connector with all 5 pins broken out, plus a MintyBoost would solve my problems.

Are there tech sheets for these Connector Shells? I looked around, but didn't find any. The alternative would be to ohm out an existing cable to figure out which solder tabs are for which signals.

This page shows the various USB pinouts

The wiki page provided shows the final USB pinouts, but I don't see the solder pin to final USB pin relationship. From what I see of the pictures on the Adafruite website, there are 2 internal solder pins on one side & 3 on the other. If no tech sheets, I can ohm it out as stated prior.

Thank you.

Yes, you'll have to ohm it out.

Frankly, I think 'you'll have to ohm it out' is a shitty response. Where is the data sheet?

Meanwhile, I found this on another forum.
