Molex’s USB 3.0 (also known as SuperSpeed) Type A connectors meet high- durability class requirements of 5,000 mating cycles and can now be ordered from TTI, a specialist distributor of passive, connector, electromechanical and discrete components. The devices are ideal for use in computer, consumer and car product applications.

The USB 3.0 connectors are halogen-free for environmental sustainability and support high, IR reflow temperatures of up to +255degC while maintaining solder mount compatibility. The connectors come in on-board style, top- or reverse-mount, upright and vertical orientations. Dual-stacked versions are available for additional mating requirements.

Molex also offers reverse, mid-mount style (or sink-type) receptacles with contact heights that range from 0.36mm up to 2.04mm for space-saving and low-profile height applications.
