GCT is satisfying increasing demand for compact designs. The company has launched a short body style USB A connector with a minimal PCB footprint of only 131mm2.


USB A is a versatile choice for a broad range of applications and the new USB1125 connector from the company is 25% smaller than full-size equivalents. Notwithstanding a shell depth of only 10mm there is no compromise on performance. It is rated to 5000 mating cycles while the standard is typically 1500 cycles for these connector types.






“The tried and tested USB-A connector is just as popular today as when it was launched over 20 years ago,” comments Paul Hulatt, GCT product manager. “Given how long USB-A has been in the market, we continue to innovate with distinctive features for this original USB form factor. In addition to the USB1125 with a shorter body length, we also have ultra-high mating cycle variants such as the USB1086, providing engineers with greater flexibility when it comes to USB connectivity options.”
