GCT has developed a pin header for USB thru hole footprint. The footprint matches the standard USB2.0 A type, full size standard.
A customer has designed their PCB for USB and during the final phases of the design wanted to have the USB connector mounted in the outer panel of the equipment. This simple pin header for USB thru hole footprint allows users to switch to a panel mount USB interface, via a simple wire assembly, without the need for a main PCB change or an additional PCB to support the panel mount USB socket.
GCT can offer the appropriate USB cable assembly with a panel mount, cable mounted USB A receptacle.
As this is hot of press we haven’t uploaded this to our website yet , so please contact GCT for more details.
Edit 29th Jan 2016: Also take a look at the GCT overmolded cable assembly pages, where you may request custom USB cable assemblies.
