Würth Elektronik expands USB C range with 24-pin, high-rise model 

Würth Elektronik has added a 24-pin fully-configured horizontal receptacle for SMT assembly to its USB-C range. The USB 3.1 Type-C connector allows complete visual control of soldering thanks to its two rows each with twelve contacts. 

The fully equipped WR-COM USB 3.1 Type-C High-Rise SMT is compatible with USB 3.2 Gen 1×2 signalling and USB Power Delivery standards, but can also be used for alternative and accessory modes, including transmitting analogue signals via the (D+/D-) pins.

The USB 3.1 Type-C connector is designed for at least 10,000 mating cycles and operating temperatures from -40 to +120 degrees C. The pin contacts and also the outer retaining pins of the shielding are gold-plated in the contact zone to ensure the best possible connection to the PCB. 

Würth Elektronik said the stable receptacle is suitable for all consumer and IT applications using the USB 3.2 Gen 1×2 standard in terms of data and power transfer. 

This latest member of the USB product family is now available from stock without a minimum order quantity. Developers can also order free samples.

Würth Elektronik offers a range of connectors, EMC filters, components for ESD over-voltage protection and AC/DC to DC/DC power conversion for USB 3.1. The products are recommended in the USB Type-C reference designs from leading IC manufacturers. Components for the development of USB interfaces include, for example, pulse-stable WE-MPSB SMD ferrites for hot-plugin, high-efficiency pressed power inductors (WE-MAPI) for Vbus filters, current-compensated data line filters (WE-CNSW HF) and the WE-TVS diode for ESD line protection. As a partner for developing USB solutions, Würth Elektronik provides application notes and reference designs.
