Heilind is now stocking Hirose’s CX Series USB Type-C connectors, designed for high-speed transmission and enhanced usability.

Heilind Electronics, a leading global distributor of electronic components and authorized distributor for Hirose, is now stocking the manufacturer’s CX Series USB Type-C connectors. The next-generation CX Series conforms to USB Type-C (3.1 Gen 2) -- the new protocol for data connectivity in the consumer, industrial machinery and automobile markets.

Featuring quick charging and a 10 Gbps high-speed transmission, USB Type-C connectors can transfer data twice as fast as conventional USB 3.0 (5 Gbps) connectors. Furthermore, alternate modes enable the accommodation of video transmission standards such as MHL and DisplayPort.

Another key feature of the new connectors is simplified mating. The reversible form factor eliminates the possibility of backward insertion, while a clear tactile click prevents incomplete mating. The slim overmold design of the plugs further enhances usability.

RoHS-compliant and halogen-free, CX Series connectors are available in both hybrid (mid-mount) and double-row SMT (top-mount) varieties.
