Reliable Universal Connectors
TE's connector system accommodates the two deferentially driven data wires that provide bi-directional, simultaneous signals for full speed (12Mbps) or low speed (1.5Mbps) used in universal series bus (USB) systems. Designed for outside-of-box, user-friendly applications, the TE system consists of a single, four-position board-mount receptacle and mating cable mount overmolded plug. Board-mount receptacles are available in standard, Type B, stacked, and side-by-side configurations, adding to the system’s versatility to meet the needs of many USB applications.
