JAE Electronics debuts USB Type-C connectors

JAE Electronics, a global manufacturer and marketer of connectors, debuts full line of USB Type-C connectors. Based on the USB 3.1 specification that defines the next generation of USB connectors, the JAE DX07 offers all the features this new standard has become known for.

It has a small form in which the ultra-compact DX07 is marginally larger than micro USB 2.0 connectors used in today's phones. At 10Gb/s, the USB 3.1 Type-C connector is one the fastest small form connectors available, stated the company. It operates up to 100W and has a reversible design where users can connect in either direction.

Ultimately the USB Type-C connector will truly be universal. For example, today's bigger devices use standard USB connectors; smaller devices use micro USBs. Ultimately, all devices will use USB Type-C connectors, JAE indicated.

Additional features of the USB Type-C connector embodied in the JAE DX07 family include: friction lock housed inside of connector that is not visible or exposed to the environment presenting a much cleaner looking plug/cable connector; special ground spring contacts connecting the plug and receptacle shells substantially reduce EMI levels; and supports power delivery (3A/5A). Most legacy connectors require some modification to facilitate power delivery. But Type-C connectors transmit higher current without modifications because Type-C connectors divide power over several contacts.

Future developments for the USB Type-C connector include adding the capability to support alternate modes of information. Ultimately, the goal is that a single Type-C USB port enables all connections.
