Tyco Electronics Corp. said that its Micro-USB connector is smaller than conventional Mini-USB connectors and enables portable device makers of mobile phones, MP3 players, GPS navigation systems, digital cameras and digital video cameras to further miniaturize their products

The Micro-USB connector meets the USB Implementers Forum specification finalized in January 2007, which supports the current USB On-The-Go supplement allowing communication between portable devices without going through a host.

Tyco said the Micro-USB interconnect product includes a unique design which exceeds the standard durability specification, and features a latch mechanism to protect against accidental plug removal. It provides a minimum extraction force of 8N and 10,000 mating cycles. The connector is RoHS-compliant.

Receptacle profiles on the circuit board are as small as 2.4mm. Receptacles and cable assemblies that support USB On-The-Go are also available.
