Würth Elektronik is expanding its USB-C range with a 24-pin fully-configured horizontal receptacle for SMT assembly. The high-quality USB 3.1 Type-C connector features its high-rise design. It allows complete visual control of soldering thanks to its two rows each with twelve contacts. As a fully equipped Type-C connector, it is not only compatible with USB 3.2 Gen 1x2 signaling and USB Power Delivery standards, but can also be used for alternative and accessory modes. This includes transmitting analog signals via the (D+/D-) pins.

WR-COM USB 3.1 Type-C High-Rise SMT is designed for at least 10,000 mating cycles and operating temperatures from -40 to +120°C. Not only the pin contacts, but also the outer retaining pins of the shielding, are gold-plated in the contact zone to ensure the best possible connection to the PCB. The stable receptacle is suitable for all consumer and IT applications that are designed to exploit the options provided by the USB 3.2 Gen 1x2 standard in terms of data and power transfer. The latest member of the USB product family is now available from stock without a minimum order quantity, and developers can order free samples.
