CUI Devices develops USB Type C receptacle

CUI Devices’ Interconnect Group has introduced a USB Type C connector designed for power only applications.

The UJC-HP-3-SMT-TR is a 6-pin USB Type C receptacle that can deliver up to 60W of power with a 3A rated current and 20Vdc rated voltage. By removing the data transfer pins it is, according to the company, a more cost-effective solution for designs where charging or power is the sole function.

Housed in a surface mount package, the UJC-HP-3-SMT-TR is also compatible with any standard USB Type C plug, taking the accessibility and simplified design integration of the universal and widely adopted Type C connection and applying it to power only applications.

This USB Type C connector further offers reflow solder compatibility, a -40 to 80°C operating temperature range, and high reliability up to 10,000 mating cycles.
