USB made simpler and more secure with magnetic connectors

RS Components has the solution for easier and safer USB connectivity in tight spaces or where the potential for unintended disconnection risks damaging equipment. Rosenberger magnetic self-locating connectors are now in stock, in USB Type-A, Type-B, Micro-B and Mini-B form factors.

The full range, comprising connector plugs, sockets, and cable assemblies, allows users to go magnetic at either end of any connection. The advantages include zero-force mating and extended cycle life, self-location with accurate alignment even in locations that are difficult to reach or hard to see, and wrench-free tear-away that protects equipment against damage in the event of unintended disconnection. Magnetic USB connections are also waterproof and UV resistant.

The connectors feature built-in misconnect prevention, and have reliable, corrosion-resistant gold-plated contacts. The contacts are also easy to clean, ensuring outstanding long-term performance even in challenging environments.

Rosenberger magnetic connectors are suitable for all USB2.0 applications, and include a USB-A male to female adapter, Micro-B adapters, and male/female USB-A to Micro-B cable assemblies in one-metre lengths and white or black colour options. A 1.5-metre USB-A male to magnetic circular 5-pin male cable assembly, and compatible magnetic circular 5-pin connector accessories are also available.

CPU choice for display based systems
Behind every display based system is the CPU which acts as the brain of the entire module creating the data that is presented as well as driving the I/O peripherals, display and touchscreen. There are many factors to consider when choosing the right CPU for your project, including whether you pick a complete Single Board Computer (SBC) or a stripped back core module (COM).
