GCT are excited to offer a new range of USB3 Micro connectors in right angle PCB mount with A/B and B mating configurations, this complements GCT’s existing full size USB3.0 offering.
USB3 significantly increases date transmission speeds vs. USB2, allowing transmission of up to 4.8 Gbps, x10 faster than USB2, this step up allows seamless uncompressed transmission of high speed data, such as moving HD images.
USB3.0 allows for more power when required, Micro connectors have 10 contacts which allow an all signal option at 1.0A per pin, or a power/signal option with two pins rated at 1.8A and the remainder running at 0.5A, operating temperature is -30° to 85°C.
PCB sockets are backward compatible with Micro USB2, USB2 micro cables plug into USB3.0 micro receptacles using the ‘left hand’ cavity, note data transfer at lower USB2.0 rate.
GCT offers SMT micro versions in bottom mount (standard) with pure SMT or with thru hole stakes for strength. 30µ” gold plate is standard, allowing 10k mating cycles. A/B types have a reverse Superspeed diff. pair pin assignment which allows On-The-Go option.
