Waterproof USB Type-C receptacle

24 November 2021 Interconnection

Hirose Electric has developed a new addition to the CX Series of USB Type-C connectors: the CX90BW-16P, a 16-position, top-mount receptacle supporting IPX4.

The USB Type-C connector, with a rotationally symmetrical design that can be inserted without worrying about contact direction, has become increasingly popular and is used in a variety of applications such as smartphones and tablets. As a result, specification requirements including waterproof performance, durability and demand for 16-pin variations are diversifying.


To meet these needs, Hirose has developed two types of Type-C receptacles. The CX90BW-16P is a top-mount receptacle; a connector soldered to the top side of the PCB. With a waterproof level of IPX4, it can be used safely even in environments with exposure to water splashing.

The CX90MW6-16P is a mid-mount type that is fit in a hole cut in the board. Since it does not take up space for mounting, it contributes to height reduction of equipment. In addition, the unique design of the internal parts enables high PCB retention force. Retention force can be further enhanced by screwing the connector to the board after mounting, using the screw holes in the shell. The high IPX8 waterproof performance provides resistance to environmental elements.

Both the CX90BW-16P and the CX90MW6-16P have a high heat resistance of 105°C and a high current capacity of 6 A for quick charging.
