Our new vertical Micro USB plug is perfect for docking applications. Often Micro USB male plugs are cable mounted and supplied as part of a cable assembly, however USB3150 is vertical PCB mounted, which allows it to be used in charging or docking applications.
There are very few competitors products on the market, the Hirose ZX80-B-5S and ZX80-B-5SA are most prevalent in the market place, whilst great products they have a huge plastic base, are relatively high profile and expensive.
For a docking applications customers asked us to develop a version that while strong has a much smaller footprint and lower profile height. We delivered the USB3150, a thru hole micro USB male with a 7.13mm (.28″) profile and 7.35 x 2.80mm (.289″ x .110″) footprint. The mating contacts are 30µ” gold plated and has been tested to industry standards, including 10,000 mating cycle. Strength is achieved with six metal shell stakes, aided by two large plastic locating pegs.
There are two versions of USB3150 with different stake and lead lengths. This allows customers to most closely match the PCB thickness they are using: 0.75mm (.029″) and 1.30mm (.051″) stakes and leads.
