Global Connector Technology release thru hole B and A/B type Micro USB connectors with 2.3mm leads suitable for 1.6mm PCB thickness.
GCT's vertical USB range is now the broadest in the market, with numerous design options, including SMT and thru hole, variable lead and shell stake lengths and optional extra stability mounting types.
Vertical micro USB is chosen in designs where horizontal connectors don't meet customers design requirements. Examples of diverse applications are smartwatches, electronics bracelets, sports headgear, consumer electronics, wearable electronics, robotics and home automation.
The original range proved popular, however customer's using thicker PCB's found the 1.5mm shell stake and lead length too short for 1.6mm thick printed circuit boards. In response to this problem GCT developed USB3106 B type & USB3131 A/B type with 2.3mm leads and stakes, perfect for use in applications with thicker PCB's.
