Global Connector Technology – New ultra low-profile vertical micro-USB connector


GCT has launched the USB3160, a low-profile micro-USB vertical receptacle.

The new surface-mount connector has a profile of just 5.2mm, making it suitable for use in new generations of compact and portable devices that require a USB 2.0 port.

The USB3160 also features a high charge-current rating of 2.8A. Some 1A higher than that of conventional micro-USB connectors, this current capability enables the USB3160 to be used in products that support fast charging.
