Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have looked at, read, re-read, and been attempting to get EScribe/data connection using a generic USB breakout board.

My understanding: 

From breakout board to DNA60:

VCC to pin 15 via 10K ohm resistor  

Data + to pin 14

Data - to pin 13

@ChunkyButt200 can you please help?

No connection. I’ve tried this several times on/off for a looooong time. 

Help is very-much appreciated in advance. 

And yes, USB cable is data capable.

@greenj22 Are you going to leave that permanently soldered? I notice a BB on your bench, and my connections are always removable cuz I just couldn't figure how to mount the board

Hi Wayneo,

I have sorted out USB install in BB’s, but it is a fair amount of modding. I just wanted to try using different USB or taps that I could install with less modifications.

Spector - Thanks so much! I think I figured it out and you are 100% right! I was expecting to get a connection without power going to the board, just as you would with the stock USB. So I connected the ground and a battery and I’m good to go!! Finally! Thanks for your input.

I know this is an older post but I'm planning to put a USB port on my SXK DNA60 BB.  Would you happen to have any advice or guidance on getting a USB board to fit in there?  I have an Evolv 1A charge board and know how to wire it just need a little info on milling out the box and physical placement of the board.  Not sure I would ever use the USB to charge but would like to have it for Escribe.  Thanks!
