AE has developed and launched 16-position USB Type-C receptacles that have all contacts arranged into a single row of SMT terminals for easier PCB termination and routing compared to standard dual row receptacles. They will be made available to customers as part of the “DX07 Series” family of products, which also includes cable harnesses, receptacle connectors, and plug connectors.
The USB Type-C interface is widely used as a standard interface for portable devices such as PCs, smartphones, and gaming machines. In addition, the usage of USB Type-C is increasing for specialized power supply applications such as power adapters, power banks (mobile batteries), and as a replacement for the conventional standard USB 2.0 Type-A as well as standard and Type B connectors.
To cater to these needs, JAE has added a new variation of a USB Type-C receptacle with only 16-positions by eliminating the high-speed signaling pins (SuperSpeed pin) which are not required for USB 2.0 and power-supply only applications. This product achieves a shorter connector depth and improved solder repairability by using one row of SMT mounted terminals rather than 2 rows of SMT terminals required for standard 24 position receptacles. This contributes to downsizing of devices, and improves the ease of PCB design with less layers.
As a manufacturer who has taken part in the development and standardization of the USB Type-C specification, JAE will continuously work to expand product variations of receptacles, plugs, and cable harnesses in the DX07 Series.
