JAE Electronics Introduces USB Type-C Connector Family

IRVINE, CA -- JAE, 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, including:
•Small form – The ultra-compact DX07 is marginally larger than micro USB 2.0 connectors used in today's phones
•High speed data transmission – At 10 Gbps, the USB 3.1 Type-C™ connector is one the fastest small form connectors available
•Power – Up to 100W
•Reversible design – 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.

"We were one of the first interconnect companies invited by the USB-IF to participate in the development of the USB Type-C™ connector," said Glenn Griffin, Vice President, JAE Electronics. "Our people know first-hand the enhanced capabilities of this new standard and we are excited to be among the first to offer a full line of these components."

Additional features of the USB Type-C™ connector embodied in the JAE DX07 family include:
•Friction lock equipped - Friction lock housed inside of connector is not visible or exposed to the environment presenting a much cleaner looking plug/cable connector.
•EMI Reduction – Special ground spring contacts connecting the plug and receptacle shells substantially reduce EMI levels.
•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.

According to USB-IF, 2016 shipments of USB 3.0 and 3.1-enabled devices will hit 2.1 billion units, up from 684 million units in 2014. Strategy Analytics estimates that Type-C™ connectors will be featured on 12% of mobile handsets by 2016.
