GCT unveils cost-effective ionex USB Type C vertical receptacles

GCT’s USB4120, part of the ionex Type C range, is a new vertical mount connector with a very low profile at just 6.5mm high on the PCB.

The device is a new addition to the GCT USB line up and gives customers greater choice and flexibility in designs. Featuring a very low profile of 6.5mm on the PCB, the USB4120 has been designed to be a cost-effective vertical mount USB Type C featuring 16 pin configuration and USB 2.0 functionality.

Four through hole shell stakes and two PCB location posts provide the USB4120 with enhanced stability during processing and retention strength at end usage. The USB4120 is suitable for thinner, 0.8mm thick PCB’s adding further versatility.

The ionex range provides engineers with the option to choose type C over other USB variants where price has previously been a barrier.

GCT said that further developments for ionex products will be coming in 2021.
