For Global Connector Technology’s (GCT) North American customers, we have stock of Raspberry Pi USB connector at our channel partner Newark. This is the dual USB2.0 A type connector used on the Raspberry Pi. Link to Newark website.
This connector allows space saving as two USB A interfaces stack on top of each other. It’s rated for use from -40°C to 85°C with a mating cycle rate of 1,500 cable insertions.
See more information on USB1035-GF-P-0-B-B on the GCT website. Including drawing, product specification, 3D models & links to distribution stock.
Planar PCB connection when the PCB spacing is greater than 50mm is a challenge using traditional, economical elevated pin headers and sockets as the length of the pins can cause distortion either during the product manufacturing process or in the final assembly process.
An alternative option is to utilize a low cost PCB in place of the elevated pin header.
The picture shows an example from GCT’s 2.00mm pitch board to board connector range. Receptacle connectors are mounted on both horizontal PCBs. BF100 on the uppermost PCB and a BF120 on the lower PCB.
On the vertical PCB the uppermost connector is a BF060 with the lower part being a custom shrouded version.
This arrangement can be made using parts from GCT’s 1.00, 1.27, 2.00 & 2.54mm pitch ranges.
