Keystone Intros Micro-USB Interconnects
Micro-USB interconnects.
Astoria, NY — A new series of advanced Micro-USB plugs and sockets with up to 4.8Gbps data transfer speeds is now available from Keystone Electronics Corp. These sockets reduce PCB footprints and support On-the-Go (OTG) technology for mobile device connectivity without a host computer.

Designed for increased durability, the new USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 products can withstand greater than 10,000 mating cycles. Micro configurations provide the smallest PCB footprint of all USB interconnects, significantly reducing PCB real estate.

In addition, an unusual socket lead-in design enables blind-mating with the plug. Plugs and Sockets are manufactured with gold-plated contacts for reliability and low contact resistance.

Cat. No. 940TR is a surface mountable Micro-USB 2.0 Type B socket. It is available on tape-and-reel to simplify pick-and-place installation. Insulating material is UL94V-0 rated.

Cat. No. 955 is a thru-hole mountable Micro-USB, 3.0 Type B Socket that delivers data transfer speeds to 4.8Gbps. All USB 3.0 sockets are backward compatible with USB 2.0 plugs. They are suitable for use by numerous electronic devices such as digital cameras, mobile phones, flash drives and computer peripherals.

The company's Type B Micro-USB Plug kits, Cat. No. 941 for USB 2.0 applications and Cat. No. 957 for USB 3.0 applications, are well suited for creating custom cable assemblies. The kits are supplied with an unassembled metal housing with strain relief. Both plug and socket are available in stock from the company's global distribution network.
