Hirose Electric


Hirose has introduced the CX series of surface-mount and through-hole USB Type-C™ connectors which offer a compact footprint to save board space.

The new CX series connector, which conforms to the specifications of the USB 3.1 Gen 2 standard, supports the 10Gbits/s transmission rate, enabling data transfers twice as fast as those of a conventional 5Gbits/s USB 3.0 connector. A high-current variant, the CX90M-16P, operates at the USB 2.0 data rate of 480Mbits/s, and is intended for use in fast battery chargers.

The receptacles feature a hybrid design and use both surface-mount and through-hole soldering to improve mounting accuracy and to minimize the board mounting space needed. The design also facilitates automated optical inspection, and eases reworking of the solder terminal joints with a visible lead design. The slim plug is reversible, and the user-friendly receptacle features a symmetrical mating face to prevent incorrect insertion. A tactile click can be felt when mating the connectors to ensure correct engagement and prevent incomplete mating.
