To support the shrinking mobile devices and wearable devices, TE Connectivity (TE) has unveiled a new high-speed multiple I/O products to transfer USB 3.1 signals in a Micro USB 2.0 form factor.
“TE has engineered this new multi I/O connector to handle data up to 10Gbps for USB 3.1 super speed and 3A of power as standard — all this in a Micro USB 2.0-sized interface,” said Egbert Stellinga, product manager, TE Consumer Devices. “In addition to delivering high speed, the connector's small size, compatibility, durability and improved EMI performance present key advantages for use in small-size, battery-operated portable devices such as mobile phones, tablets, digital cameras, navigation devices, media players and wearable devices. This product allows our customers to run high-speed data, video and power charging through one single connector.”
The multiple I/O connecting receptacle measuring width of 7.52mm comes with various pin position options such as 5+4 and 5+8 to meet the customer’s need for speed, video and power.
This connector supports the speed of USB 3.1 (10Gbps), economical power delivery (rapid charging with a 3A battery charger at one-third the standard USB 2.0 charging time and 2A additional power over four optional additional pins), and external video display connectivity including Mobility DisplayPort (MyDP) and MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) capability. The multiple I/O receptacle also offers backward compatibility with standard Micro USB 2.0 plugs.
