GCT offer connectors for the following USB versions:
- USB2.0 is suitable to 480 Mbps, with 4 contacts in Full Size, 5 or 10 contacts in Mini and 5 contacts in Micro.
- USB3.0 is suitable to 5 Gbps, with 9 contacts in Full Size and 10 contacts in Micro.
USB Connector Style
Defines connector body style, from largest, Full Size, down thru Mini and Micro.
- USB2.0 is available in Micro, Mini and Full Size.
- USB3.0 is available in Micro and Full Size only.
Male Plugs mate with Female receptacles. When mated the body of the plug is enveloped by the female USB socket.
For Full Size types, mated connectors are held in place by sprung tangs on the female shell which latch into two cavities on the male shell.
Micro types have the opposite arrangement with tangs on the male shell and cavity on female shells, this is a key reason why USB Micro receptacles are suitable for ten thousand mating cycles.
Full size types are available in both A & B, A is the ‘in-line’ rectangular type, B the square.
Micro receptacles are available in B & A/B. B types accept USB B cable plugs and A/B types accept USB A or B cable plugs. A/B is normally used in On The Go (OTG) applications. Click here

Termination method of soldering connector onto PCB. Through hole (TH) or surface mount (SMT).
PCB Mount Position
Horizontal connectors only
Bottom and top mount defines which side of the PCB the connector is placed. Note – Standard PCB mounting - Micro types mounted on the underside (bottom), mini and full size types on top. GCT also offer non-standard ‘reverse’ mount types. The USB symbol on mating cables is designed to always face upwards, regardless of PCB mount position. Click here
for more information.
Mid mount types can be either bottom or top PCB mount and are placed within a cut-out on the PCB, these would normally be used in low profile applications where height above PCB is critical.
Position of the connector mating face relative to the PCB. Vertical (straight) is 90° to the PCB, horizontal (right angle) is 180° to the PCB. Upright/flag types have the connector mounted on its side.
Plastic locating pegs to hold the connector in place during solder process and may provide extra strength post soldering. Also known as plastic post.
This defines whether the USB connector has metal shell stakes, and if so what type. Shell stakes are used to hold the connector in place during reflow solder process and provide extra strength post soldering. They also provide grounding.
Mating Face Lead In
Defines whether the connectors mating face includes a lead-in which helps guide mating connectors into place. For applications where customers prefer the connector not to have a lead-in, we offer ‘without mating face’ for flush fitting.
‘With and without mating face lead in’ defines a drawing with an optional lead in.
Micro USB Connectors
Micro USB connectors are available in horizontal and vertical orientations, with surface mount and through hole mount types. PCB mount positions available in this range are top mount, mid bottom mount and bottom mount.
Micro USB connectors have the options of pegs and outer, inner or through hole shell stakes.
All µUSB connectors have 5 pins and are packed in tape and reel packaging.
GCT micro USB connector's plastic housing material is LCP, contact terminal material is copper alloy and metallic shell in stainless steel. µUSB current ratings are 1A and have an operating temperatures ranging between -55°C to +85°C.
Product specifications and technical drawings are offered on all parts. 3D PDF's and Iges (3D models) are available at GCT.
All Micro USB connectors are RoHS compliant.
