USB Female Type C Connector

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.

Customer Comments

  • Would it be possible to have the mechanical drawings?

    • The Dimensional Drawing has been added to the Documents tab!

    • I also wanted to get a copy of the mechanical drawing, so I did some digging, and I think I found it, or at least it should be pretty close…

      I’m pretty sure is this guy, but I’d like to get a confirmation from Sparkun.
