Micro-USB Connector Boasts Tiny Footprint

Smaller than the conventional Mini-USB connector, the Micro-USB connector delivers the smallest footprint available in USB interconnects. It enables portable device makers to further miniaturize real estate in devices such as mobile phones, MP3 players and GPS navigation systems. The 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. The connector has a unique design that exceeds the standard durability specification, and also has a design feature that helps to prevent wire pinching. A latch mechanism helps prevent accidentally pulling out the plug. Other features include a minimum extraction force of 8N, after it’s rated 10,000 mating cycles, RoHS compliance, and receptacle profiles on the circuit board as small as 2.4 mm.
