Molex USB Connectors Enable Sleeker Designs

The company's latest Micro-USB connectors promise higher design flexibility and compactness for portable mobile devices. Compared to the Mini-USB, the Micro-USB connectors offer a more compact footprint and a volumetric space reduction of more than 50%. The connectors are compliant with Micro-USB 1.0 specifications and support the USB On-the-Go (OTG) supplement. They are available as standard and mid-mount B receptacles with lead-in features for blind-mating capability. The receptacles have wide side solder tabs for secured PCB retention and top grounding fingers for mating. Additionally, the connectors feature a unique laser-welded shield design to ensure mechanical seam strength and rigidity of the connector body. To prevent miss mating with A-type plugs, the receptacles have a beveled B-style profile. Pricing starts at $0.30 each/100,000. MOLEX INC., Lisle, IL. (800) 786-6539.
