USB type-C connectors are for smart devices
USB type-C connectors from Global Connector Technology (GCT) are designed for mobile and smart devices. The connectors are ready for next-generation applications delivering speeds up to 10Gbit/s for data transfer, audio and video connectivity, supporting HDMi, DisplayPort and VGA. The connector also supports USB Power Delivery standards of charging capability, with rapid charging up to 100W.
The reversible plug design allows the cable to be plugged upside down, making it a more user-friendly interface for consumers, says the company.
There are both horizontal and vertical USB type C receptacles. Horizontal receptacles are available in a hybrid of through hole and SMT, allowing superior co-planarity and facility for inspection after processing. Top mount, mid mount versions are available in short and long body types.
According to the company, its drawn metal shell design for horizontal parts provides superior EMI shielding compared to stamped sheet metal housings. The enhanced mechanical strength of the shell structure also makes the connectors suitable for the automotive, industrial, medical and instrumentation markets.
