Reliability and ruggedness in a sleek, slim design

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 small home appliances and robust enough for industrial applications. These products feature a reversible mating interface and receptacle 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 adapters, 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 board retention features, waterproof and splash proof options for better performance in rugged environments.
