External USB Data Connection Trouble - DNA60

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.

You need to apply power to the board before EScibe will see it. (4.20v to batt neg and batt pos pinouts ~ 10 and 9, respectively). You have the data part covered corretcly now you just need to wake the board up with some juice. Once the board is powered on, then connect the USB cable to EScribe.

@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.
