Wiring up usb to back panel - V5

Morris Ford
 

I'm looking for wiring information for cabling from the raduino to a usb connector mounted on the back panel, ubitx V5. This is a 'cut the end off a cable and connect these wires it to the connector' type information.

If everyone would rather that I figure it out, I will understand.

Thanks in advance

Google for a mini-USB to panel adapter -- Instead of hacking a cable and connector to adapt the Arduino Nano's mini-USB jack to a panel jack to plug your computer into, you can use a ready-made cable.  On Amazon, there looks like mini, type B or type A panel mount options available for under $10. 

Or depending on which ends of the cable you want to hard-wire, you could chop up a cable and solder it to the Nano or the panel.

Thanks for responding David.
What I was thinking was to plug into the raduino with a mini and solder the other end to a panel mounted usb jack, There is a usb jack like that in the stuff that came with the rest of the ubitx stuff. I was hoping someone had done the same or similar and had the wiring layout.

Thanks

I put a 4 port USB hub inside my case and now have one USB connection for raduino/sound/serial  -- works great for FT8 etc

Hi Morris,

Just google for "usb connector pinout".  If you click on the images tab, you will see lots of helpful pictures to show how the wiring is done.

Thanks for that. I have that board and I was planning to use it for the usb sauce. The info you sent has details about the wiring that I had been looking for.

In the long term my planning has a usb hub integrated in the cabinet as was suggested in response to my post and a raspberry pi in cabinet and adding sdr capability to the ubitx.
