Longer OTG cable for Realsense ?

Espressobot New Member Posts: 1
We're using an UP board for our robot. It's the RDK version that comes wit the Realsense R200.
I need to keep the UP board in the base of the chassis w/ the other electronics because we have a chain conveyor that takes up about 90% of the volume of the robot so clearances are pretty tight. I also need to put the R200 on the top of the robot, near the front for fiducial tracking & object recognition, about a meter or so away from where the UP board itself is.

Has anybody found a longer USB 3 cable that will plug into the OTG port and that the UP will recognize as USB 3 ?
I've tried a couple USB A->OTG adapters from Amazon and our local PC parts store and they haven't worked.

    Hi EB,

    Unfortunately most of the usb 3.0 cable that you find out there are not great quality and the micro connector on the board is quite sensible.
    I would suggest to use the micro to micro USB3.0 cable that you can find on the UP shop that has been used in our testing with SSD and RealSense camera reliably.
