Hirose CX series USB type-C connectors
Hirose developed USB type-C receptacles and plugs as a standard high-speed transmission interface solution
Hirose developed USB type-C receptacles and plugs as a standard high-speed transmission interface solution for consumer, industrial machinery and automotive applications.
The CX series is a USB 3.1 gen. 2 connector and 10Gbps high-speed transmission can be achieved that transfers data twice as fast compared to a conventional 5Gbps USB 3.0 connector.
The receptacle feature a hybrid design and utilises both surface-mount and through-hole soldering to improve mounting accuracy and minimise the board mounting space needed. The design also facilitates automated optical inspection and eases reworking of the solder terminal joints with a visible lead design.
The slim plug is reversible and can be simply inserted in any direction as the user-friendly receptacle features a symmetrical mating face to prevent incorrect insertion.
A tactile click can be felt when mating the connectors to ensure correct engagement and prevent incomplete mating.
