Micro-USB Connectors

Micro-USB connectors from Molex represent 50% volume reduction over Mini-USB connectors

Micro-USB ConnectorsWith a 50% reduction in connector volume over the Mini-USB connector, Molex's Micro-USB connector features the smallest footprint of all USB interconnects and offers significant reduction in PCB real estate for a host of portable devices. Micro-USB replaces a majority of Mini-USB plugs and receptacles currently in use. The specification of the Micro-USB supports the current USB On-The-Go (OTG) supplement and provides total mobile interconnectivity by enabling portable devices to communicate directly with each other without the need for a host computer.   Micro-USB Datasheet

Molex has developed seven series of Micro-USB Type B and Type AB receptacles in a selection of top-, bottom- and mid-mount versions, and a new series of USB A to Micro-USB B cable assemblies. These connectors include a lead-in feature in the connector housing for blind mating of receptacle to plug. The connector body has a unique laser-welded metal shield design that reinforces mechanical seam strength while preventing damage to the plug or receptacle due to perpendicular or horizontal (wrenching) stress. Other key features of the product include high durability of over 10,000 insertion cycles and a passive latching mechanism that provides higher extraction forces without sacrificing the USB's ease of use when synchronizing and charging portable devices.
