USB 3.0 cable assembliesGTK provides a comprehensive range of USB 3.0 cable assemblies. The blue overmoulded cable assemblies are available in a variety of configurations including: A to A, A to B and A to Micro B styles. These assemblies are both PC and MAC compatible and enable data transfer speeds of up to 4.8Gbps. As well as these standard assemblies, GTK is able to incorporate the USB 3.0 technology into its custom cable assemblies, offering different connector ends and inter-series assemblies.

USB 3.0 technology, often referred to as “SuperSpeed USB” offers a ten-fold increase in data speeds over the previous USB 2.0 specification. It also has increased power output & efficiency which enables it to support modern devices which are increasingly power- hungry, and increases the battery life of portable devices. The USB connector has become the de facto standard connector for many product applications, including PCs, peripherals, consumer electronics and mobile platforms & the increase in its performance allows it to meet the requirements of the next generation products/technologies.

Tom Hennessey, business manager for cable assemblies said, “USB 2.0 is still currently the dominant technology, but we are seeing a steady increase in the demand for USB 3.0 technology as more equipment manufacturers launch devices that utilise USB 3.0 technology and consumers want to operate these devices at their maximum speed. In addition to our standard cable assembly range, we are able to offer custom options for those customers who need this. We can supply cables to specific lengths and include company logos and colours as required.”
