USB I/O sockets include vertical USB 3.1 variant

USB I/O sockets from Mill-Max now include the Vertical SMT SuperSpeed Universal Serial Bus 3.1, Type C. It is twice as fast as USB 3.0 (up to 10Gbit/s) with more efficient data transfer, higher through-put and improved I/O power efficiency, says the company. The receptacle joins the company’s USB 3.1 Top Mount and Mid-Mount style receptacles.

The addition has a full metal housing with enhanced EMI/RFI prevention. The type C connector style has no polarisation so cables, with type C plugs, may be connected regardless of orientation.

It is backward compatible with previous USB versions and provides optimised power efficiency to reduce drain on portable device batteries.
