USB3.0 compact dual-port jack for future-proof designs
To future proof USB designs, Taiwanese electromechanical component designer Suyin has developed a compact USB3.0 jack to support the high speeds of the new protocol and be backwards compatible with the existing USB2.0 plugs.
The compact USB-3.0/type-A dual-port 020051MR018S500ZR jack (with two layers of 9 contacts) fully complies with all physical and technical requirements for USB 3.0. The standard version features gold plating in the contact area and dpecial features include the low contact resistance of 20 mΩ (typical), the high insulation resistance of 1000 MΩ (initial) and the excellent durability of 5,000 mating cycles. The stacked dual-port USB-3.0 jack is provided in a right-angled design for through-hole mounting. A single-jack version for USB 3.0 is currently in the design stage.
Dimensions: 19.83 x 15.0 x 15.77 (L x W x H in mm overall)
Founded in 1981, Suyin is headquartered in Taipeh/Taiwan and employs over 11,000 people around the world in six production plants in Taiwan and China (Dongguang and Changshu) and in nine branch offices (China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, USA, Europe, Israel). With a turnover of US$205m in 2007, the company is among the top ten in its industry in the Asian/Pacific region.
