November 10, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Mouser Electronics has USB Type-C connectors from Amphenol Commercial Products. These connectors are tailored toward emerging product designs, fully compliant with USB Type-C specifications, and designed to meet future USB performance needs.

Amphenol Commercial USB Type-C plugs and receptacles are small enough to fit in smartphone, tablet, and other mobile device designs, yet also meet the substantial performance requirements of laptops. They offer reversible plug and cable directions and support scalable power charging with extended 5A current ranges plus USB Power Delivery Specification. The connectors also meet USB 3.1 protocols, giving them high throughput speeds up to 10 Gbps plus backward-compatibility with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0. Both plugs and sockets feature copper alloy contacts and a nickel-plated stainless steel shell.
