USB Cable Assembly – Hideaway with molded pivot

This USB cable assembly is designed with an overmolded & wired pivot to snap into the customers housing this innovative USB cable assembly allows the whole assembly to be hidden in a cavity until needed.

Our customer came to us with the design brief, ‘we need to design a USB cable that can be packed away until required’.   We worked with in tandem with the customer and developed a plastic molded pivot which allows the cable to be hidden in a cavity until required, pretty neat!

One end of the cable assembly is a USB2.0 A type plug, the other a 4 pin 1.25mm pitch wire to board connector.

USB3.0 Slimline Mid-Reverse Connectors

GCT USB 3.0 Slimline Mid-Reverse mount

With the nature of electronic design ever changing to offer devices that are both smaller and slimmer it’s imperative that component manufacturers evolve connector technology in response. For this reason Global Connector Technology (GCT) has introduced a new range of USB3.0 mid reverse connectors that are ideal for inclusion in devices such as tablets, notepads and other hand held devices.

In low profile applications where height above and below the PCB is key, GCT offers mid bottom mount USB3.0 connectors. USB3.0 full size connectors are mounted as standard on the topside of the PCB. GCT’s innovative reverse connectors allow mounting on the bottom of the PCB, the connectors sits in a cut out on the printed circuit board thus minimising height. Receptacle insulators have perfect orientation to allow normal cable assembly plug mating with USB symbol facing upwards.

  • USB1115 with cutaway face is perfect for angled panels, with an ultraslim 5.4mm body height.
  • USB1110 is mounted below the PCB, while the bulk of the connector sits above the PCB. Both connectors are packed in tape and reel and are suitable for the demands of high temperature processes.
