Amphenol has been designing and manufacturing electrical and electronic connectors since the company’s inception in 1932. For nearly a century, we’ve been helping customers transmit power, data and signal in the harshest environments, from subsea applications to the outer reaches of space and everywhere in between. Our wide array of electrical and electronic connectors come in multiple form factors and are designed to meet the latest market needs including high power, high speeds, size and weight reduction, EMI shielding, hermeticity, high pressure and improved board retention. Amphenol also offers a broad portfolio of contact styles, termination types, mating styles, connector geometries and environmentally-friendly RoHS plating.
Amphenol USB 2.0 Connector was developed to integrate a variety of existing PC I/O ports into a single interface with hot-plugging and automatic configuration capabilities. It enables increased bandwidth to enhance serial I/O throughput for a wide range of peripherals. USB 2.0 connectors offer a stable signal data transmission up to 480Mb/s.
FCI Basics USB 2.0 connector delivers a data rate of up to 480Mb/s. The Universal Serial Bus interface is ideal for use in connecting removable storage devices into automotive multimedia systems but extends its functionality across a variety of domains in consumer, datacom, and industrial applications.
The Lite version of 16pin USB 2.0 Type C connectors come with, top and middle mount options. These connectors can deliver a speed performance of 480Mb/s, with a current rating of 5A, and power rating up to 100W. It is ideal for consumer applications such as wearable devices, power banks, smart home devices, e-cigarettes, and especially for TWS (True Wireless Stereo) headphones.
FCI Basics USB 3.0 connector delivers a data rate of up to 5Gb/s thanks to the SuperSpeed transfer mode. As a third major revision of the USB standard, it is backward compatible with USB 2.0 devices and cables. USB 3.0 is available in vertical through hole, right angle through-hole, and upright through-hole positions.
SuperSpeed USB will deliver 10x the data transfer rate of Hi-Speed USB, as well as improved power efficiency. With 5Gb/s signally rate, SuperSpeed USB 3.1 has a Sync-N-Go technology that minimizes user wait time. No device polling and lower active and idle power requirements are other significant features of these connectors. SuperSpeed USB is backward compatible with USB 2.0.
FCI Basics USB 3.1 Gen 1 SuperSpeed connector delivers 10x the data transfer rate of Hi-Speed USB, as well as improved power efficiency. Standard form-factor plug and receptacle performs up to 5Gbps and has "Sync-N-Go" technology that minimizes user wait-time. SuperSpeed USB is backward compatible with USB 2.0.
COMPLIANT TO USB 3.1 SPECIFICATIONS; IDEAL FOR SERVER APPLICATIONS
Amphenol USB 3.1 Gen 2 Connector operates with full-duplex signaling over two differential pairs, improving host-directed simultaneous bidirectional communication. It supports scalable power delivery up to 100W and performance speed up to 10Gb/s.
FCI Basics USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type C connector delivers 2x the data transfer rate of SuperSpeed USB, as well as offers highly improved power efficiency. The next-generation form factor provides a multifunction single cable solution for data, power, audio, and video. Standard form-factor plug and receptacle performs up to 10Gb/s and power delivery up to 100W.
The Amphenol Socapex USB3 Amplifier extends USB3 connections up to 11 meters, offering exceptional reach, versatile compatibility, and tailored length options for applications in C5ISR, battlefield communications, and naval environments. With enhanced EMI protection, IP68 sealing, and robust durability, it ensures reliable performance in challenging conditions.
The Amphenol Socapex USB3CFTV connector provides a durable solution for data transmission in challenging environments, offering reversible connectors, bi-directional power capabilities, MIL-DTL-38999 series III type, IP68 rating, and resistance to shock, vibration, and extreme temperatures—making it ideal for military, aerospace, and industrial applications.
Amphenol SOCAPEX reinforced USB memory keys are available in different capacities: 32, 64, 128 & 256Gb, and more. They can only be used with our Amphenol Socapex USB3FTV or USBFTV receptacles for data storage in harsh environments. The USB3.2 Gen1 max transfer rate is 5 Gb/s.
USB 4 connectors compatible with Thunderbolt 4 interface combines power charging, tunneling USB, PCIe® data transfer, and DP video and audio capability in a single Type C connector. With a power rating of up to 100W, these connectors have a high-speed data transmission rate of up to 40Gb/s.
With Amphenol SOCAPEX USBF TV & USB3F TV, connectors, users can insert a standard USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 cordset into a metallic plug that protects it from shock, dust, and fluids. The range is for Atex Zone 2 environments. It's based on MIL-DTL-38999 series III with a threaded locking mechanism. The connectors are sealed against fluids and dust (IP68).
Amphenol LTW's waterproof USB connectors are IP67 / IP68 rated and designed with standard Type A/B interfaces in various product configurations -- plastic/metal, screw/bayonet locking, receptacle, receptacle with cables, overmolded cable, and field-installable demands for industrial applications.
Amphenol offers customized USB type C receptacles, whether in USB2.0 or USB3.0 version, in surface or mid-mount SMT version. Amphenol has also developed its own standard “strong” type, which enables high soldering adhesion to the PCB, suitable for harsh environments or high cable pulling force requirements. Waterproof versions have been designed as well.
USB Type C connectors are expected to be widely used as a next-generation interface. They support a variety of protocols such as USB2.0/3.0/3.1 and meet Superspeed communication 10Gb/s, 5A, and 20V power supply. The usability of the USB 3.1 Type C connector is enhanced also by its low profile and reversible product design. It is ideal for emerging product designs.
