How does USB cable work?

A USB cable consists of four wires that are used for transferring separately power and data. A USB cable allows for communication between devices in both directions.

What USB cable type describes?
USB cable types can be classified into several transfer speed groups:

• USB 3.1 – the most recent and the fastest available standard of USB
cables. It is capable to transfer up to 10Gbps. Please, bear in mind that USB 3.1 types are not compatible with USB 2.0 or older ports.

• USB 3.0 – these cables are able to work up to 5Gbps and are used in many modern devices that require multiple streams of data. USB 3.0 ports are fully backwards compatible which means USB 2.0 cables will be working with them. However, data transfer speed will be limited up to 2.0 standard.

• USB 2.0 – one of the most popular USB Cable standard that allows for a transfer speed of 480 Mbps. Most of the devices on the market are compatible with this standard.

What is OTG?

Usually, you would connect your peripheral device to a PC which would act as a host device. OTG is a standardized specification that allows a device such as a mobile phone or tablet to act as a host instead of a PC. The host device can then have other USB devices attached to it such as a digital camera or flash drive. The micro A plug connects to the host device and the micro-B plug connects to the peripheral device

What is a Micro USB Connector?

A Micro connector is a durable, miniaturised USB connector about half the thickness of a Mini USB. This connector was designed for connecting small, slimline mobile devices such as smartphones and digital cameras to a host PC such as a desktop, laptop or tablet. A fifth pin incorporated into this connector enables it to support On-The-Go technology when used on an OTG cable.

3.0 B male - 3.0 B and AB female

How does a USB Cable Work?

A USB cable allows digital data to be transferred from a peripheral device to a host PC or, in this case, another USB device. The Micro A USB connector is inserted into a Micro-AB USB port or receptacle on your mobile host device. The Type B connector is inserted into the peripheral mobile device.
