TE Connectivity's New Versatile Splashproof Micro USB Connector Ideal for Trendy Consumer Products


SHANGHAI, China - As consumer products get thinner and smaller, they become increasingly vulnerable to water and dust. For micro USB connectors, therefore, being able to support the devices with splashproof and dustproof features is no less important than being compatible in size and shape. TE Connectivity (TE) today launched a splashproof micro USB connector designed to seal gaps around the opening and inside of the connector shell. As a result, the new connector brings the best protection and optimizes user experience.

"ICs and components like microprocessors, speakers, LCD panels and PCBs in consumer products are becoming more and more delicate. Even a small drop of water or a small dust particle could impair an expensive device. For today's modern and multifunction products, micro USB connectors create one of the largest openings on the surface, even in the connector shell, there are some large gaps-all of which increase the risk of water or dust intrusion," said Egbert Stellinga, global product manager of I/O connectors at Consumer Devices, TE. "This versatile splashproof micro USB connector is TE's response to market demand and marks the next step in TE's state-of-the-art micro USB connector portfolio. It offers the possibility to protect mobile devices from being damaged by water or dust intrusion, and thus helps further protect our valuable mobile devices."

With a dimension of 8.2 x 5 x 3.8mm, TE's new splashproof micro USB connector is only slightly higher than its non-splash-proof counterparts, while the protection against water and dust may greatly reduce cost of maintenance or post-sale service. Completely sealed IP 54 phone can be designed using this connector with the rugged molded connector front that helps seal the connector against the device shell. The new splashproof micro USB accepts A and B type plugs, and supports normal USB and USB on the Go. Conforming to micro USB 2.0 specification, it also supports high-speed data and power transmission, while the SMD solder bracket provides additional strength from underneath the connector.
