Introducing the CX series next generation USB Type-C™ compliant interface connector from HIROSE

HIROSE, a world-class leader in the design and manufacture of innovative connector solutions, has developed USB Type-C receptacles and plugs as a standard high-speed transmission interface solution for consumer, industrial machinery and automotive applications.

The CX series is a USB 3.1 Gen2 connector and 10Gbps high-speed transmission can be achieved that transfers data twice as fast compared to a conventional 5Gbps USB 3.0 connector.

The receptacle features a hybrid design and utilizes both surface-mount and through-hole soldering to improve mounting accuracy and minimise 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 can be simply inserted in any direction as 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.

The connectors are suitable for a wide range of applications such as control systems, drones, medical devices, smart meters, point-of-sale equipment, imaging equipment and many other small portable devices.
