GCT Launches ionex® USB Type-C Charging Range

ionex USB4110 USB Type-C Charging Connector

To make USB Type-C more accessible for electronic designs, GCT has launched a new range of charge centric connectors.

The GCT ionex® range provides the fast charging capabilities of USB Type-C at a cost effective price point. For applications where charging is the primary function for a USB connection, the ionex® range truly makes Type-C a real option over other popular USB types.

Following the success of GCT’s USB4085 horizontal through-hole Type-C receptacle launched last year, the new USB4110 surface mount variant joins the ionex® product line up and is expected to be more popular since it’s the prevalent mount type for USB. The ionex® range achieves its competitive price point by simplifying it’s engineering. Modifications made to the connectors PIN structure by removing the SuperSpeed differential pair contacts creates a 16-pin variant of USB Type-C, providing ionex® connectors all the required charge capabilities of Type-C with USB 2.0 functionality.

Micro USB remains a popular USB choice for charging applications primarily for it’s a low cost, small footprint and the fact it’s a well-established and widely used connector to fulfil this task. But with new technology demanding quicker charge times and better ergonomics, USB Type-C is the ideal alternative. “There is a clear desire from the engineers to adopt the latest version of USB for new designs but costs still remain a key barrier.” states Eren Ozkan, EMEA Project Manager for GCT . “By engineering Type-C connectors to meet the requirements for charging focused products, we have been able to reduce the costs for our customers making it a compelling alternative over Micro USB for these applications.”
