You connect a cable that provides a USB Type A Female connector to one (or both) of the internal USB 2.0 headers on the BE NUC's board.

The locations of the two USB 2.0 headers is detailed in Figure 2 on Page 4 of the BE NUC's Technical Product Specification (TPS). The pin-out of these headers is detailed in Section 2.2.4.7 on Page 39 of this TPS.

I believe that such a compatible cable, produced by GORITE, is available from MicroSATACables. Here is link to the web page for this cable on their site: https://www.microsatacables.com/nuc-internal-usb-20-cable-with-usb-a-female-to-4-pin-connector-intl-... MicroSATACables.com: 3-Inch Internal https://www.microsatacables.com/nuc-internal-usb-20-cable-with-usb-a-female-to-4-pin-connector-intl-... NUC https://www.microsatacables.com/nuc-internal-usb-20-cable-with-usb-a-female-to-4-pin-connector-intl-... USB 2.0 Cable with USB A Female to 4-Pin Connector. MicroSATACables and GORITE are also vendors on Amazon and you can purchase this cable there as well: https://www.amazon.com/NUC-Internal-Cable-Female-Connector/dp/B01BJ0KL7Q Amazon.com: 3-Inch Internal NUC USB 2.0 Cable with USB A Female to 4 Pin Connector.

As I said, I believe that this cable is compatible. Unfortunately, I cannot find pin-out information on the MicroSATACables or GORITE sites to verify for-sure. I suggest that you ask MicroSATACables and/or GORITE for verification before purchasing.

Hope this helps,

I would add that MicroSATACables has a longer version of this cable that will allow you to bring the USB A Female connector(s) outside of the chassis. I found this cable only on the MicroSATACables web site; I didn't see it on Amazon.
