The USB Type-C receptacle from TE Connectivity (TE) is now in stock at Mouser Electronics. This new mid-mount connector provides data, power, and audio/video connectivity and transmission in a single solution. The receptacle is fully compliant with USB Type-C specifications and is designed to be small enough for handheld devices yet robust enough for industrial applications.

The connector features a reversible mating interface designed to accept a plug in any direction, enabling easy, reliable mating. The connector supports a variety of protocols and, with the use of adapters, is backwards-compatible to HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort and other types of connections from the single USB Type-C port.

It supports scalable power charging, delivering up to 100W at 20V, and meets USB 3.1 protocols, giving it high throughput speeds up to 10Gbps plus backward-compatibility with USB 3.1 Gen 1, Gen 2 and USB 2.0.

TE’s new USB Type-C connector features enhanced electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding on the receptacle shell to help eliminate unwanted EMI leakage and provide enhanced performance over similar legacy products.

It also offers additional connector board retention features compared to the industry standard footprint to provide enhanced reliability and ruggedness. The receptacle is suitable for a variety of applications, including factory automation, power chargers, medical devices, automotive infotainment systems, smartphones and tablets and wearable devices.
