GCT has expanded its range of ionex USB-C connectors for charging-only applications with a lower cost version.
The USB4125 and USB4130 are the latest additions to the range and feature a 6-contact configuration, making them GCT's most cost-effective solution to date with a USB Type-C interface. The USB4130 is also a first-to-market vertical product.
GCT’s aim is to create opportunities for engineers to use Type-C format connectors in cost-conscious product designs where previously, pricing was prohibitive compared to Micro USB.
The USB4125 and USB4130 are horizontal and vertical mount connectors respectively, fully reversible and compatible with all USB Type-C cables, and are ideal for customers looking to adopt the most current USB-C interface but only require charging functionality.
The connectors have 6 SMT contacts and are rated at 3A, and both parts feature four through-hole shell stakes and are supplied in tape and reel packaging.
“We are embarking on an exciting new frontier with ionex Type-C, developing connectors that have a sole purpose of delivering power only,” said Paul Hulatt, GCT Product Manager. “Combined with all the benefits of the Type-C interface, USB4125 and USB4130 achieve industry leading price-points, making it an easy choice over Micro USB for future charge only designs.”
The USB4125 and USB4130 are available through GCT’s global distribution network, including Digi-Key Electronics for immediate shipping.
