USB-C is quickly becoming more and more prominent in the maker community because, let’s be honest, who likes trying three times to insert USB into a port? This is a 16-pin, female, USB Type C connector that is commonly found in smart phones, laptops, and other newer electronics. Each USB-C connector will require PTH soldering to secure it to your board and SMD soldering to connect each of the 16 control pins.
If you are looking for an easier way to hook up a USB-C connector to your project, we do offer a breakout with 0.1" spaced, breadboard friendly pins.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Competent - You will encounter surface mount components and basic SMD soldering techniques are required.
