Vertical micro USB receptacle meets demand for compact devices 

Claimed to have one of the of the lowest profiles available in the market at 5.20mm height above PCB, the USB3160, low profile SMT Micro USB vertical receptacle, meets the demand for smaller and compact devices, says GCT.

The USB3160 has a high current rating for charging at 2.8A, which is 1.0A over standard products, says the company, making it suitable for fast charging application requirements.

 The receptacle is a claimed to be more reliable than its rivals due to the positioning of the shell stakes. The company’s engineers have identified that competing products have them very close to SMT pads, posing a greater risk of short circuiting. The USB3160 avoids this problem with shell stakes designed to allow for more space.

 Several variants of the connector are available, including three shell stake lengths at 0.70 1.20 and 1.70mm.
