Hirose have enjoyed great success with the Micro USB 2.0 type connector range, however rapid advances in technology has emerged and the requirement for better performing connectors with superior high speed transmission capacity has now arisen. Due to this demand Hirose has drawn from their pioneering design expertise to introduce the new highly developed super speed ZX360 USB 3.0 connector. ZX360 connectors are designed with super speed in mind. The data transmission speed has been increased to an incredible 5 Gbps allowing much faster, seamless data transfer rates and enables uncompressed transmission of High Definition moving pictures.
The range consists of a Type-B receptacle and plug and a Type-AB receptacle and Type-A plug are being planned. The structure of the connector is in two joined sections, the first section features a USB 2.0 interface to allow for a power charge connection and the other is the USB 3.0 for super speed transmission. The innovative style of the plug allows the cable to be soldered internally to a small printed circuit board (not supplied) instead of directly on to the contacts to reduce the mechanical stress applied to the contacts. More power is delivered by ZX360 allowing the current capacity to be increased to 900 mA. Durability is not compromised in any way and 10,000 mating cycles can be achieved. Backward mating compatibility with USB 2.0 is guaranteed.
ZX360 is particularly suited for small handheld applications such as medical equipment, measuring equipment, MP3 players, notebooks etc. For more information please contact us.
