Snipe USB Cable


The Snipe has an odd cable which has a micro-usb male connector on both ends. A micro-usb connector has 5 pins. I picked up a few MicroUSB breakout boards to plug both ends of the cable in and check how things were connected with an ohm meter. There is the usual ground, +5V, Data+ and Data-. The Snipe cable also makes use of the 5th pin which is sense. The extra pin is connected to ground on both ends of the cable. It is an odd cable and I don't think anyone would sell one. The USB OTG cable is the closest, but it probably only has the sense pin connected to ground on one end of the cable. Not both ends of the cable.
