Cable Connections for Smart Boards

Difference between Serial Board and Smart Board Connection Material

The Smart Board  has a USB-C connection instead of the Serial connection found on the Serial Boards. The USB-C connection is found on the side of the Smart Board and is distinguished by its horizontally symmetrical "reversible" connector.

Therefore Smart Boards need to be connected into a tournament string with a "board-to-bus USB-C" cable or connected with a PC or laptop with a USB-C to USB cable. A separate cable for the connection between the board and the clock is also required.
