Cliff Electronics has introduced a versatile USB-C male-female connecting cable which supports PD charging at 60W (20v/@3A), USB 3.1 (Gen 1) 5Gb/s data transfer speeds and can be employed as a video cable for 5k@60Hz video output (Thunderbolt 3) and audio transmission.

When used in a system equipped with Cliff FeedThrough connectors, both the XLR and SLIM versions, the cable can be utilised to connect to a monitor in the same way as existing HDMI and VGA FeedThrough connector versions. Cable lengths offered include 0.3m, 0.5m, 0.75m, 1, 1.5m and 2m.

John Hall, managing director of Cliff Electronics, comments: “USBC ports are now appearing on many new devices including monitors, laptops and flash drives, and 25% of new cars are predicted to have them by 2025. Major mobile phone manufacturers are now designing USBC connectors into their latest models enabling high-speed charging and a one-cable solution for charging.”

The new cables can be utilised with a wide range of Cliff USBC XLR and DualSLIMS footprint female to Male FeedThrough connectors, offered in metal or plastic and many assembly options.
