USB Type-C Connector

A true game changer

Our USB Type-C connectors provide one solution to deliver data up to 10 gigabits per second (Gbps), power up to 100 watts, and audio/video input in a single connection. The small form factor features a flippable assembly that is adaptable to current USB type, and a reversible interface for easy, reliable mating.

As the next-generation solution for current and future USB applications, our USB Type-C connectors are designed to an industry standard that provides a sleek, slim design small enough for handheld devices and robust enough for industrial applications. The USB Type-C connector features a reversible mating interface; the receptacle is designed to accept a plug in any direction, enabling easy, reliable mating. This connector supports a variety of different protocols, and with the use of adaptors, it is backwards compatible to HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort, and other types of connections from the single USB Type-C port. We provide a distinctive electromagnetic interference (EMI) design on the back of the receptacle shell to help eliminate unwanted EMI leakage, as well as enhanced retention features and splash proof options for better performance in rugged environments.
