For tournaments, large numbers of serial tournament e-Boards can be connected together to the computer using conventional cables or the wireless DGT Caïssa System. For use at home, club or school, the USB and Bluetooth e-Boards were developed to connect a single plug-and-play e-Board to the computer via USB cable or wireless using Bluetooth.
