Adding another I/O (input/output) connector solution for slimmer mobile and wearable devices to its portfolio, TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity, today introduced one of the industry’s first high-speed multi I/O products to transfer USB 3.1 signals in a Micro USB 2.0 form factor. The new product addresses the growing demand for mobile devices to have more increased functionality, higher speed and larger screens that require high-power battery consumption.
“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,” fiber optic cleaning kit 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, fiber cleaning kit 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.” fiber optic tools The high-speed multi I/O connector receptacle is only 7.52mm wide, the same width as a standard Micro USB 2.0 receptacle, and comes with various pin position options such as 5+4 and 5+8 to meet the customer’s need for speed, video and power. The product provides several industry-defining, value-added features, ripley tools including higher speed from USB 3.0 (5Gbps) up to 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(R) (Mobile High-Definition Link) capability. The multi I/O receptacle also offers backward compatibility with standard Micro USB 2.0 plugs.
