- 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 (also known as USB3.1 Gen 1 or USB Superspeed) is suitable to 5 Gbps, with 9 contacts in Full Size and 10 contacts in Micro.
- USB3.1 (also known as USB3.1 Gen 2 or USB Superspeed+) is suitable to 10 Gbps, with 9 contacts in Full Size, 10 contacts in Micro and 24 contacts in type C.
- USB2.0 is available in Micro, Mini and Full Size.
- USB3.0 is available in Micro and Full Size only.
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.
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 for more information.
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.
2x4 and 2x9 options define dual receptacles (stacked connector).
*GCT offer a special Mini with 10 contacts.
‘With and without mating face lead in’ defines a drawing with an optional lead in.
Micro USB Connectors
GCT offer a wide range of Micro USB connectors complying with USB2.0 standards. Connectors are available in horizontal and vertical orientations and surface mount and through hole mount types.
For horizontal printed circuit board mount applications GCT offer top, mid bottom and bottom mount. Bottom mount is the accepted standard, these configurations allow designers to consider a variety of different design options. See more information on mount types here.
There are a variety of different hardware options, pure surface mount without any stakes or pegs is perfect for designs where the printed circuit board cannot be drilled or routed. There are options for plastic locating pegs and metal shell stakes provide strength and stability, these are available in a variety of different styles.
Micro USB connectors have five contacts, the insulator housing material is LCP, contact terminal material is copper alloy and stainless steel shell. Current ratings are 1.0 amp per circuit for signal pins and 1.8 amps for power pins.. Operating temperatures are between -55°C to +85°C. All connectors are packed in tape and reel packaging. Please check product specifications for more information.
Product specifications, technical drawings and 3D models are available for instant download on all parts.
All Micro USB connectors are fully RoHS and Reach compliant.
