FAQ for what is OTG, working for, how to use, and questions you meet or unknown on applications of USB OTG Cable.

1. What is OTG?

USB On-The-Go, often abbreviated to USB OTG or just OTG, is a specification first used in late 2001 that allows USB devices, such as digital audio players or mobile phones, to act as a host, allowing other USB devices, such as USB flash drives, digital cameras, mice, or keyboards, to be attached to them. Use of USB On-The-Go allows those devices to switch back and forth between the roles of host and client. For instance, a mobile phone may read from removable media as the host device, but present itself as a USB Mass Storage Device when connected to a host computer.
