Molex USB Type-C Cable Assemblies

Molex USB Type-C Cable Assemblies offer greater PCB savings while enabling high-frequency mating in data, consumer, and other I/O applications. These Type-C connectors feature maximum data throughput of 10Gbps and a current-carrying capacity of 5A. The 5A current rating reduces battery charging time by 64% compared to the micro-USB 2.0 current rating of 1.8A. These connectors and cable assemblies are also available in mid- and top-mount versions. Applications for Molex USB Type-C Cable Assemblies include data and computing, telecommunications, networking, consumer, automotive, and industrial.


  • Support for 5A of power in plug and receptacles reduces battery-charging time
  • Mid-plate connector "tongue" design in the receptacle ensures high reliability
  • High-temperature Nylon insert-mold receptacle housing increases connector strength
  • Availability of cable options meets USB 2.0 and USB 3.1 speeds
  • Single-piece metal shell on the cable plug provides easy identification
  • Mylar between plug housing and shell prevents potential electrical shorting during mating
  • High normal force terminal design on the plug stabilizes electrical performance
