I have a board that is vertical to the ground, I need to provide a USB interface to the external world, due to the orientation, this needs to be vertical to the board. (i.e. think of my board standing up and USB connector protruding from the board). I looked around and it seems there are no micro B connectors that would stick out from a board, which made me think that probably the best practice is something else.
I am assuming best practice is to make a tiny board, assemble the connector to this board and connect USB via cable to the mother board. I like to get opinions from the crowd:
How did you deal with this problem?
When I am carrying USB signals from my board to a connector elsewhere, any precaution I need to take?
