Kycon USB 3.1 Type C Options

Morgan Hill, CA – Kycon has expanded their USB series by adding both a vertical mount and right angle USB 3.1 Type C female port connector with longer shield pins to their product line. Both connectors support up to a 10Gbps data rate, handling significantly faster data transfer than the standard USB 2.0 and 3.0 products. The vertical mounting option minimizes its board footprint to offer a design solution where space is a concern, and is backward compatible with USB 3.0 and 2.0 to offer maximum design versatility. The longer shield pins offer more stability for thicker printed circuit boards.
