The Molex Micro-USB Connectors allow designers to push the limits with sleeker designs and greater portability with its 0.65mm pitch, enabling a 50% reduction in connector volume over the Mini-USB. The Micro-USB supports the current USB On-The-Go (OTG) supplement and provides total mobile interconnectivity by enabling portable devices to communicate directly with each other without the need for a host computer.

Molex has developed several series with a selection of Type 'B', Type 'AB', top-mount, bottom-mount, and mid-mount versions, as well as USB 'A' to Micro-USB 'B' cable assemblies. The Molex Micro-USB Connectors include a lead-in feature in the connector housing for blind-mating of receptacle to plug. The connector body has a unique laser-welded metal shield design that reinforces mechanical seam strength, while preventing damage to the plug or receptacle due to perpendicular or horizontal (wrenching) stress. Other key features of the Micro-USB include high durability of over 10,000 insertion cycles; and a passive latching mechanism that provides higher extraction forces without sacrificing the USB’s ease-of-use when synchronizing and charging portable devices. The Molex Micro-USB Connectors are ideal for all mobile and portable devices, computer peripherals, and accessories such as vehicle battery chargers.
