It is my understanding that, retrograde though it be, USB Mini is something of a de facto cable standard in the MX keyboard world, especially when it comes to custom cables.
I’m working on a design that will have a USB Mini port on it and I’m trying to figure out how large to make the hole that accommodates the connector end on the cable. I know these are oftentimes made as custom parts that have shrink-wrap on the ends as a kind of hand-made custom strain-relief bushing, so I can’t necessarily just follow the USB spec. Can anybody provide me with any guidance on how big I should make my port hole such that it can accommodate the largest (plausible) USB Mini cable end size?
On the Heavy-6, I used 12.2mm x 9mm. I haven’t heard any complaints about people with cables not fitting, but then again I figure most people there are probably just using the stock FC660C cable, so it may not be representative.
Thanks for any help/insight!
