January 25, 2016 - Mouser Electronics, Inc. is teaming up with Fairchild, Littelfuse, and Amphenol Commercial Products to present the building blocks of a USB Type-C™ solution. Delivering data rates up to 10Gbps and up to 100W of power with a reversible interface for easy and reliable mating, USB Type-C technology offers a multifunction, single-cable solution for audio/video, data, and power. From laptops and smartphones to flash drives and video systems, the list of practical applications is growing because Type-C technology provides both data and power to hosts and devices, and offers a universal power cable solution. Mouser stocks the components engineers need to incorporate this vanguard technology into new and existing designs.
The Fairchild USB Type-C portfolio is optimized for cost, footprint, and low-power use. The devices in the Fairchild portfolio consume 90 percent less power than the nearest competing solutions, in packages that are up to 43 percent smaller. The offerings include discrete, flexible solutions ranging from controllers to power switches and USB 3.1 SuperSpeed switches.
As USB devices deliver more speed and power with smaller chips, protection against electrical transients and overcurrent faults becomes more critical and complicated. Littelfuse USB 3.1 Type-C circuit protection devices provide overcurrent and electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection while maintaining USB 3.1 Type-C data integrity. The Littelfuse circuit protection offering includes both resettable polymeric positive temperature coefficient (PPTC) devices, which provide overcurrent protection for the enhanced-capability power bus, and diode arrays, which offer ultra-low ESD protection for the high-speed data line, helping to ensure signal integrity.
Amphenol Commercial USB 3.1 Type-C connectors are fully compliant with Type-C specifications and are tailored to future USB performance needs for the newest emerging products. These low-profile connectors are small enough to fit in smartphone, tablet, and other mobile device designs, yet also meet the substantial performance requirements of laptops. The connectors 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 10Gbps.
