The Micro USB is a popular and versatile I/O connector and is currently the smallest form factor available in the USB range, almost 40% smaller than a USB Type C equivalent.
Micro USB connectors are made up of five contacts, with its tiny form factor enabling manufacturers to produce slimmer and more compact devices. Rated to 10,000 mating cycles as standard, it is a very attractive proposition when considering USB due to a great mix of price and performance.View all Micro USB Products
