Apple Lightning to USB camera adapter

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi!

 

Has anyone opened an Apple Lightning to USB camera adapter? Since it has capabilities that the standard usb cable doesn't have, I guess it must contain another chip in the female USB A end?

 

I recently bought an iFi Nano iDSD, and it works like a charm with the Touch 5G running iOS 7.1.2. I had an idea about breaking a Lightning to USB camera adapter open and unsolder the female USB A end from the chip and replacing it with a male USB B connector...

 

What do you guys think?

What capabilities do you think you can exploit?

 

More info of the lightning connector can be found here.

I'm assuming the idea here is to cut a cable out of the equation, and be able to plug one cable with a Lightning connector on one end, and the necessary USB host circuitry somewhere in the middle, and a USB-B connector on the other? If so... I look forward to watching your progress, I've been hoping someone would attempt this...

This is exactly what I was planning to do...

 

One wouldn't wanna mess up though, with Apple's bloody price on the CCK... 

 

Just made a custom OTG cable (Micro B - B) for my S4 to use with the iDSD, turned out pretty well:

 

 

I'll inform you guys here if I ever attempt anything with the CCK
