Anyone successful with using a single USB-C connection for the BB60C? Theoretically, it will support the needed power and speed requirements with a single cable. I’m curious if a new adapter cable can be provided by Signal Hound to make this an option…

We have certainly talked about this. Right now, it seems that USB-C is not very widespread yet, but as it becomes more popular there may be an off-the-shelf solution, or we may decide a custom adapter cable makes sense.

We haven’t tried it, but there are several low cost USB 3.0 micro-B to USB C cables available. Dell sells one for like ~13 USD. If you wanted to try it, we would love to hear the results. The likely issue you will run into is that the USB C cable without additional development on our end, will not provide enough power to the BB60C. It would be interesting to know.
