Solutions for Wearables
With our connectors, antennas, and sensors, TE can help clear the way for innovative consumer experiences.
Let's create something wearable, together! The engineering of wearable devices presents challenges in miniaturization and multifunctionality, rugged design, and sensor integration. This is where we come in. Our components are already part of well-known wristbands, watches, and smartwear, but with our wide range of products we can enable you to build the wearable you’ve been imagining. We can help you to find solutions to fit the most performance into the ever-smaller, more rugged, and more beautifully designed devices. Our miniaturized components offer high-speed computing that runs on low power through the harshest environments and across industries. TE technology offers reliable multifunctionality in applications for healthcare, fitness, navigation, and more.
The trends in the emerging wearables market are characterized by two words: fast charging and speed. We feature a new product that provides high performance in both categories through a single connector. Our new high speed multi I/O connector supports USB 2.0, USB 3.0, USB power delivery at 3A, and even MHL / MyDP video in one connector.
Micro USB Connectors
Our micro USB connectors combine high speed data capabilities and a charging function in one connector.
USB 3.0 Connectors
Our USB 3.0 connector meets all 3.0 standards of the USB Implementers Forum. It supports 5Gbps data rate for fast syncing on the go, a 10x performance increase over USB 2.0.
USB Type-C Connectors
USB Type-C is the new standard plug or receptacle providing a multi-function, single cable solution for USB, power, and audio/video.
HDMI/USB (2/0/3.0) Port Protection - PolySwitch
PolySwitch devices deliver needed USB port (nano/micro/miniSMDC) overcurrent protection. Tested using strict protocols and compliant to production standards, our PolySwitch PPTC products help provide safety and increase product value.
HDMI/USB (2/0/3.0) Port Protection - ESD
Our ESD line of devices help protect I/O ports on HDMI 1.3, portable video players, LCD and plasma TVs, USB 2.0, digital visual interface (DVI), and antenna switches. ESD devices shunt electrostatic discharge away from sensitive circuitry in cellular phones and other portable devices.
USB (2.0/3.0) Port Protection - PolyZen
PolyZen hybrid devices offer resettable protection against multi-watt fault events while eliminating the need for multi-watt heat sinks.
For a Better Life
Wearable technology is offering personal metrics and insight for a better life.
Micro USB Receptacles
Our micro USB connectors are well known for their reliability, robustness and the system’s versatility in meeting all USB applications.
USB 3.0 Connector Solutions (English)
Learn about TE's new, full line of USB 3.0 connectors, which are backwards compatible, transfer data 10 times faster than USB 2.0, and support a data transfer rate of up to five gigabits per second.
