Keywords:USB 3.0? Hi-Speed? 5Gbit/s signalling rate? PCB retention?

Interconnect manufacturer Mill-Max has expanded its USB family to include four new USB 3.0 connectors. The connectors provide 10 times faster data transfer rate over high-speed USB with a 5Gbit/s signalling rate.

SuperSpeed USB is a Sync-N-Go technology that minimises user wait time and provides optimised power efficiency. Mill-Max is offering both standard size and micro USB 3.0 connectors. USB 3.0 is fully backwards compatible with USB 2.0. The standard style is available in Type A and Type B configurations for through-hole mounting. The connectors are fully shielded, have plug retention tabs and kinked locating legs for secure PCB retention. Both connectors have 9 pins. P/N 896-46-009-90-300000 is the Type A and is packaged 100 parts per tray. P/N 897-46-009-90-300000 is the type B and is packaged 80 parts per tray.

Micro USB 3.0 connectors offer more options when smaller solutions are necessary. They are smaller and lighter than existing USB connectors for portable and handheld devices. They feature 10 pins and 0.66mm pitch, thereby, reducing the board space required for mounting.

The 897-10-010-00-300002 is a vertical mount version and is packaged on tape & reel: 900 parts per reel. The 897-10-010-40-300002 is the horizontal surface mount option and is packaged 1,500 parts per reel.
