The mid-mount connector provides data, power, and audio/video connectivity and transmission functions. The receptacle complies with USB Type-C specifications and is small enough for handheld devices yet robust enough for industrial applications, says the company. It features a reversible mating interface designed to accept a plug in any direction and 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 connector supports scalable power charging, delivering up to 100W at 20V, and meets USB 3.1 protocols, giving it high throughput speeds up to 10Gbit/s plus backward-compatibility with USB 3.1 Gen 1, Gen 2 and USB 2.0. It also features enhanced EMI shielding on the receptacle shell to help eliminate unwanted leakage and offers additional connector board retention features compared to the industry standard footprint. The receptacle can be used in factory automation, power chargers, medical devices, automotive infotainment systems, smartphones, tablets and wearable devices. http://www.mouser.com/new/teconnectors/te-connectivity-usb-type-c/ WEARTECHDESIGN.COM – Latest News/Advice on Technology for Wearable Devices Weartechdesign is unlike any other website currently serving the technology for wearable devices.
