Hi,

what are the exact dimensions or what is the name of the internal USB 2.0 ports (internal headers)? I need a cable to which puts out to 2xUSB-A (like http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B005Y81RNC this one but this one is too big).

Thanks for joining the community.

I understand you are looking for USB port information; however, I need more details about your motherboard model.

I will need the model number of the NUC or desktop model number; this is located underneath the NUC or near memory slots of the board.

Identify the NUC model:

Board model information:

I'm simply looking for a USB 2.0 cable (D54250WYB has internal headers 2xUSB 2.0, but not a typical USB port), see the link I posted -- the one I posted is too big, NUC uses a bit smaller adapter but I don't know what the name is.

4xUSB 3.0 are not enough, so I want to use the other "Two USB 2.0 ports (internal headers)". This is how such an adapter looks like (see also first post..):

Unfortunately this adapter is a bit 1-2mm too big :\ Where can I buy a version which is for NUC?

Thanks for coming back to the community.

I regret to inform you that Intel does not provide cables or adapters for this USB header. You will need to look for dual custom USB cable.

You may want to try at this URL:

I think I found what is needed: Additionally to the above cable a USB 2mm to 2,54mm adapter cable is needed.

USB internal header has same standard size for 2.0 mm pitch header, I would recommend contacting http://www.usb.org/home USB.org - Welcome for information about header dimension.

This may be helpful,

Looking at the spec sheet for the 8-pin internal USB 2.0 Header, it is defined as a 1.25mm single row device.

If you go to the Intel Technical Product Specs - http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-034051.htm Intel® NUC — Technical Specifications

And look up your specs for the NUC model that you have, it will tell you what exactly you will need.

If I look at the spec for the NUC5i5RYH (which is what I have) - it gives me the following link: -

- http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24565/eng/NUC5i5RYB_NUC5i3RYB_TechProdSpec02.pdf http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24565/eng/NUC5i5RYB_NUC5i3RYB_TechProdSpec02.pdf

Page 41 has definitions for the header: -

2.2.3.1 Signal Tables for the Connectors and Headers

Table 14. Dual-Port Internal USB 2.0 Header (1.25 mm pitch)

Pin Signal Name Pin Signal Name

1 +5 V DC 2 Data (negative) A

3 Data (positive) A 4 Ground

5 Ground 6 Data (positive) B

7 Data (negative) B 8 +5 V DC NOTE

The connector used is Molex part number 53398-0871, 1.25 mm pitch PicoBlade* header, surface mount, vertical, lead-free, 8 circuits.

A visual inspection of the NUC5i5RYH shows this to be true.

The only one place that I can find that seems to have this magical item is in the UK called pcpartsandcables - see: -

- http://www.pcpartsandcables.com/support/usbcables/intelnucusbcables.php pcpartsandcables Intel NUC USB 2.0 cables

They also have different transition cables if that's your thing.

This cable was only added to their catalogue on Thursday 09 April, 2015

Intel describe their usb headers here

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-034812.htm Intel® NUC Boards and Kits — Onboard USB Header Information

if you have the NUC5xxxxx then you need a white 1.25mm pitch 10pin usb header.

Lookup this part number (google bing or yahoo)

PN# INTL-2XUSB-P8

Hope this helps.

Hi NUCHaswelli5User,

Onietiu thank you for your comments.

It is possible to use an External USB 3.0 hub. The list gives some examples.
