The following USB Type C connector has lead lengths of 1.6 mm: https://adam-tech.com/downloader.php?p=USB-C31-S-RA-CS1A-BK-SS-TR.pdf

What's a good PCB thickness for this connector? Also, why are there so few USB Type C connectors made for 1.6 mm thick PCBs?

    \$\begingroup\$ It must be obvious that PCB should be less than 1.6mm thick, although it is possible to solder the through-hole pins on a 1.6mm PCB. Typical PCB with Type-C connectors are 1.2 - 0.8mm thick. \$\endgroup\$ – Ale..chenski Aug 17 at 2:47
