Alternative access to micro usb on Babel

Hi there,

I want to get access to the micro usb via the side pins so I can add direct wire connections to have a more robust connection (rather than the micro USB itself). This is because of limited space and high vibration requirements.

I have found the 4 out of 5 pins (VCC, D+, D-, GND) but can’t seem to find the ID pin.
Does it exist on the side pins?

The ID pin is not exposed via the castellated pads and it is not actually required to establish a USB connection.

Thank you Pavel!
Clear.
