USB2.0 Hi-Speed specification compliant industry's smallest "ultra-small 5-pin connector" developed

We are pleased to announce the development and commencement of shipment of samples of an “ultra-small 5-pin connector."  Specifics are outlined below.


In recent years, there has been greater demand for higher signal transmission speeds as small equipments such as mobile phones and DSCs have been made more functional.  Subsequently, connectors for external connection are also required to be able to handle higher transmission speeds in a smaller configuration.


This new product is an interface connector of an ultra-small 5-pin design with USB2.0 Hi-Speed signal transmission capability.  Designed for a maximum transmission speed of 480M bps, this connector is highly recommended for connection of small equipment such as mobile phones, DSCs and portable music players to PCs and for rechargers.


The size of this connector is the smallest in the industry (37% reduction in footprint when compared to our previous Micro-USB connector) for better PWB area effectiveness and for further downsized equipment design.  Further, consideration is given to possible EMI problems by the employment of a fully shielded structure.
