HIROSE'S MID-MOUNT USB TYPE-C CONNECTOR SAVES PCB SPACE
DOWNERS GROVE, ILLINOIS -- Hirose, a leader in the design and manufacture of innovative connector solutions, has developed a mid-mount USB 3.1 Type-C connector with an efficient design that offers a compact footprint to save valuable PCB space. Featuring a depth of only 8.35mm, the shorter design creates additional PCB space for optimizing antenna design and allows for larger batteries capacity.
By comparison, conventional Type-C connectors are significantly longer, up to 9.4mm, which consumes valuable PCB real estate. The CX70 Series USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-C compliant interface connector supports 5Gbps for high-speed applications.
The Hirose hybrid CX70 Series simplifies retrofit and repair operations by utilizing both SMT and through hole soldering. The hybrid design also facilitates automated optical inspection and eases reworking of the solder terminal joints with a visible lead design. As a USB 3.1 Type-C connector, it features a symmetrical mating design that allows for reversible plug insertion.
"The USB Type-C interface offers customers a universal connector that is capable of twice the throughput of USB 3.0 with far more power," said Rick van Weezel, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for Hirose Electric USA. "The small foot print and hybrid mounting design make the CX70 Series an ideal choice for a wide range of consumer, portable and other devices that can utilize the USB 3.1 capabilities for speed and power."
The mid-mount, 24-position CX70 Series USB 3.1 has a rating of 5 amps for a total of 100 watts of power.
