How OTG cables work
Last Updated 2 years ago

Question: How do OTG cables work if they aren't standard USB cable?

answer: OTG is exactly a standard USB cable, except an additional pin is connected via a resistor. This resistor tells a phone, which is normally in "device mode" pretending to be a USB disk to switch into host mode, where it acts like a computer and can (for example) drive USB connected DAC's.
