TE’s USB type-C connector: high immunity to EMI

The new USB type-C receptacle from TE Connectivity™ (TE) provides a solution which carries data at rates up to 10Gbits/s, power up to 100W and audio/video inputs, all in a single slim connection.

The USB type-C connector (part number 2129691-1) helps designers to meet the requirements of both current and future USB applications. Designed in conformity with the industry standard for USB connectors, it provides a slim profile which is small enough for handheld devices yet robust enough for industrial applications.

Featuring a reversible mating interface, the receptacle is designed to accept a plug in any direction, enabling easy, reliable mating. This connector supports a variety of protocols and, with the use of adapters, is backwards compatible to HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort and other types of connections from the single USB type-C port.

The receptacle offers very high levels of protection from EMI, and provides excellent retention capabilities for long-term durability The connector is rated for a maximum 5A
current on the power supply Bus pins, and 6.25A on the Ground pins. On Connection pins, it can carry up to 1.25A, and the Signal pins are rated for a minimum 0.25A.
