Don't want to use USB, does an adapter exist?

Hello all,

 

I recently purchased a used ASUS MB168B portable USB monitor. I was considering using it as a permanent monitor for my system, but I didn't want to use up a USB port for it. (I'm aware this defeats the purpose of a portable monitor, just work with me here please.)

 

Now, this monitor is powered by a type B micro USB 3.0 to type A USB 3.0 port. (I don't think it's called 3.0 anymore, but you know, the weird micro usb with extra bit Samsung used for a while to standard USB 3.0 with the blue connector.)

 

Is there an adapter that goes from micro B 3.0 to something like HDMI (most likely with USB for power)? I found 1 cable that seems like it was made for an old Samsung Note phone to plug into a TV, but I didn't think that would work since the micro B was plugged into the source not the output.

You shouldn't have purchased the monitor, then. USB is USB: if the display's input is a USB-port, it'll require you to use USB. There is no adapter that can convert video-output into a USB-signal.
