High Speed USB Type C Plugs and Sockets

August 11, 2015

An advanced series of USB Type C Plugs and Sockets for maximizing data transfer speed and minimizing PCB footprints are now available from Keystone Electronics Corp.

USB-C technology is the latest development in connectivity to offer advantages of smaller size and increased durability which means it's small enough to work for even the smallest peripheral devices. With Type-C USB cables, both ends will be the same, allowing for reversible plug orientation worry free plugging in (upside down).

The new Keystone USB-C plugs and sockets  feature the smallest footprint of all USB interconnects and offers significant reduction in PCB real estate for a variety of electronic devices.

Keystone’s new USB-C interconnects support the USB 3.1 standard with top speed of 10Gbps and power output of up to  20V(100W) and 3Amp.  The standard allows for bi-directional power which makes these new plugs and sockets ideal for future high tech devices as a data and charging port without the need for a separate power adapter.

For circuit board mounting applications,  request the latest USB-C receptacle, (Cat. No 953).   Which features a unique hybrid mounting configuration that maximizes the efficiency of SMT contacts with the strong and durable solder connections to a circuit board of Thru Hole mounted devices

When building standard or custom cable assemblies requiring USB-C technology, our new Type C Plug Kit (Cat. No. 954) is the ideal product to use.  The plug kit is supplied unassembled with a metal housing which provides superior strain relief.

Both Plug and socket are available from stock through Keystone’s global distribution network.
