For Height Restrictive Applications New USB3.0 Mid Reverse Connectors are the Perfect Choice

Press release date: May 21, 2014

With the nature of electronic design ever changing to offer devices that are both smaller and slimmer it’s imperative that component manufacturers evolve connector technology in response.  For this reason Global Connector Technology (GCT) has introduced a new range of USB3.0 mid reverse connectors that are ideal for inclusion in devices such as tablets, notepads and other hand held devices.

In low profile applications where height above and below the PCB is key, GCT offers mid bottom mount USB3.0 connectors. USB3.0 full size connectors are mounted as standard on the topside of the PCB. GCT’s innovative reverse connectors allow mounting on the bottom of the PCB, the connectors sits in a cut out on the printed circuit board thus minimizing height. Receptacle insulators have perfect orientation to allow normal cable assembly plug mating with USB symbol facing upwards.

USB1115 with cutaway face is perfect for angled panels, with an ultra slim .212” body height.
USB1110 is mounted below the PCB, while the bulk of the connector sits above the PCB. Both connectors are packed in tape and reel and are suitable for the demands of high temperature processes.

To speed up design downloadable drawings, 3D models and specifications are available from the GCT website.  Parts are in stock in your local GCT office for next day sampling.
