Introduction HIROSE’s USB Type-C “Plug Harness Products" (CX60-24S-1000-C)
The CX60-24S-1000-C is a USB Type-C plug harness product with excellent softness and durability against bending. In addition to ease of handling, it supports high-speed transmission at 10 Gbps, it is necessary to bend even among devices such as the inside of a robot arm, and this design is ideal for areas where high-speed transmission is required.
|- Relatively expensive
- The cable is soft.
- The cable is resists characteristic
degradation caused by bending.
- The coaxial cable has a rigid shield design.
It has high frequency,
low attenuation and high stability.
|- A coaxial cable is used for
the super-speed line.
- Coaxial characteristic impedance is 45Ω
- 4 sets of coaxial cable pairs (8 cables)
- A collection of pairs of rigid cables.
- The cable characteristics
degrade when bended.
- Electric properties have low stability
due to the design.
- The twin-core twisted pair design
stabilizes the internal skew.
|- STP used for the super-speed line.
- STP's characteristic impedance is 90Ω
- STP 4-cable configuration
About USB Type-C
USB Type-C is a new connector standard of "USB 3.1" formulated by USB standard organization "USB Implementers Forum".
This compact sized USB connector is similar to the micro USB that is now widely used for smart phones and other various applications. It features reversible insertion, speeds up to 10Gbps transmission. Quick charge is possible by applying USB Power Delivery (PD).

Features 1: Reversible mating without concern for orientation
The symmetrical design eliminates concern for backward insertion. You simply insert the plug in either directions.
*Hirose's CX series has a superior in "click feel" when mating and is designed to prevent incomplete mating.
Features 2: High speed data transmission / Video output
USB Type-C can transfer the data twice as fast compared to the conventional USB 3.0 (5Gbps), 10Gbps (Max.)
Also, if alternate mode is applied, it becomes possible to meet various video transmission standards such as MHL and Display Port.
Features 3: Large capacity power supply which enables quick charge
Applicable to USB Power Delivery, it can handle up to 100W (20V / 5A). This makes it possible to use not only for smart phones but also for tablet, notebook PC and other displays.
Features 4: It can be used for both host and device sides
Using a conventional USB connector, the Series A connector is always connected to the host. The Series B connector is always connected to the device. The Type-C connector can be used at both host side and device side.
Using a conventional USB system, the USB B connector, comes in many forms including the standard USB-B, the mini-B, and the Micro-B. Each of these standards requires a different cable. The Type-C connector, it is a single standard that can connect to all devices with only one USB cable.
Features 5: Only one cable is required
The Type-C connector is able to perform all functions such as data transmission, video output and charging described above at the same time. With a Type-C cable, data transmission is set by USB, video output by display port, charging by power adapter ...All you need is only one cable!
