GCT's range of USB Type-C connectors are designed for next generation high speed data delivery and charging applications. Supporting 10gbps of data transfer, with Power Delivery (USB PD) capability to 100 watts and an ergonomic, reversible design which allows cables to be plugged in either orientation, this little connector is a game changer. The USB Type-C connector design also supports HDMI, DisplayPort and VGA.
GCT's range of receptacles includes both vertical and horizontal versions. The horizontal versions come in mid mount or top mount options. Mid mount is chosen for very thin platform designs, such as tablets. Both horizontal types include a short or long body version, which allows a choice depending on application.
Horizontal receptacles are available in hybrid of thru hole and SMT, allowing superior co-planarity and facility for inspection after processing.
GCT use superior copper alloy contact material in all USB Type-C connectors, tested to withstand temperature rise in Power Delivery applications. Watch out for low grade products on the market.
Horizontal USB Type-C connectors have two layers of shell, inner and outer. GCT's drawn metal inner shell design provides superior electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding compared to stamped sheet metal housings. The drawn inner shell is seamless and protects where cut outs for shell stakes are made in the outer shell. The enhanced mechanical strength of the shell structure also makes GCT's USB Type-C connectors suitable for automotive, industrial, and medical & instrumentation markets.
