USB cable assemblies join CUI’s Interconnect line-up

CUI’s Interconnect Group today has added cable assemblies to its existing connector and cable assembly products. The USB cable assemblies come with USB Type A, USB Type B, Micro B, Mini B, and USB Type C plugs and receptacles, along with DC power plugs, blunt cut, and stripped and tinned terminations. Joining CUI’s line of ac power cords, these USB cables comply to USB 2.0 and USB 3.1 Gen 1 standards, while offering a range of options and customisations to address a designer’s data transfer or power delivery needs.

Housed in either PVC or a TPE, halogen free jacket material, all USB cable models are shielded and come in black or white 1-metre lengths with a 24, 26, 28, or 32-wire gauge, depending on the series.

The USB cables carry nominal 20 VDC voltage ratings, 1 to 3 A current ratings and an operating temperature range from -20 to +80 degrees C. All models further comply with RoHS and the UL94V-0 flammability rating.

“The addition of USB cables to CUI’s Interconnect portfolio is a natural extension of our USB connectors line,” said David Carroll, director of product management at CUI. “This new product introduction furthers CUI’s pursuit to ease the component selection process for engineers by providing them with a complete interconnect solution, from cable to connector,” he added.

CUI’s USB cables are available now with prices starting at $1.25 per unit at 500 pieces through distribution.
