- 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.
USB C Connectors
GCT's range of USB 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 too 100watts and an ergonomic, flappable design which allows cables to be plugged in either orientation this little connector is a game changer. The USB C connector design also supports HMDi, 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 C connectors, tested to withstand temperature rise in Power Delivery applications. Watch out for low grade products on the market.
Horizontal USB 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.
