GCT expands its ionex® range of charging-centric USB Type-C connectors with all new 6-pin versions, making adoption even more accessible for designs.
ionex® offers breakthrough USB Type-C connectors for charging applications. USB4125 & USB4130 are the latest additions to the range and feature a 6-contact configuration, making them GCTs most cost-effective solution to date with a Type-C interface. The USB4130 is also a first-to-market vertical product, one of many USB innovations that GCT has introduced to the market.
GCT’s vision is to create opportunities for engineers to use Type-C format connectors in cost-conscious product designs where previously, pricing was prohibitive compared to Micro USB.
USB4125 & USB4130 are horizontal and vertical mount connectors respectively, fully reversible and compatible with all USB Type-C cables, and are ideal for customers looking to adopt the most current USB Type-C interface but only require charging functionality.
Featuring 6 SMT contacts and rated at 3A, both parts feature four through-hole shell stakes and are supplied in T+R packaging.
“We are embarking on an exciting new frontier with ionex Type-C, developing connectors that have a sole purpose of delivering power only,” comments Paul Hulatt, GCT Product Manager. “Combined with all the benefits of the Type-C interface, USB4125 and USB4130 achieve industry leading price-points, making it an easy choice over Micro USB for future charge only designs.”
The USB4125 and USB4130 are available through GCT’s global distribution network for immediate shipping.
