GCT has launched a vertically mounted USB USB Type-C connector that can reduce the size of handheld scanners, wearable technology and docking stations.
The USB4151 has a high level of integrity when mounted considering its small PCB footprint as the connector is reinforced with five shell stakes in addition to two locating pegs. This is a critical requirement when designing equipment for charging and docking applications. Competing products in the market today often have a large insulator base for stability, which comes at the expense of a larger footprint.
The new connector has all the features of the USB Type-C 3.1, including data speeds up to 10Gbps, 5.0A current rating and a reversible form factor. When paired with GCT’s USB4070 Vertical Type-C receptacle, both connectors create a complete solution for equipment using a docking configuration, such as handheld scanners, wearable technology and docking stations.
