The Vertical USB-C Breakout is now available!
Hello everyone and welcome back to another Friday Product Post here at SparkFun Electronics. This week, we have a single new product for you. The SparkFun Vertical USB-C Breakout provides you with exactly what the the name says: a vertical USB-C connector that breaks out all of the connector pins! Let's take a closer look shall we?
With this SparkFun USB-C Breakout, you will be able to incorporate a vertical USB-C connector into your projects without needing to solder each tiny SMD pad. The vertical orientation of the USB-C connector also makes it convenient for panel mounts in projects. The board breaks out the USB-C connector's
SHLD pins into a 0.1" pitch header while providing up to a nominal 1.5A of power and up to 3A depending on the upstream device.
If the vertical connector isn't your style, don't worry; we still have out SparkFun Horizontal USB-C Breakout available, too!
That's it for this week. As always, we can't wait to see what you make! Shoot us a tweet @sparkfun, or let us know on Instagram, Facebook or LinkedIn. Please be safe out there, be kind to one another! We'll be back with more new products next week so make sure to check back then. Happy hacking!
