I have to replace a USB-C connector. After desoldering I found a rather uncommon footprint. Has anyone seen this footprint before and knows where to find a new connector of this type?

Thank you!

  • \$\begingroup\$ It's rather close to a reference design of the USB Type-C Specification -- see figure 3-6 on page 51. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ This is a classic "combo" footptint, part through-hole, partly surface mount. \$\endgroup\$ Oct 31, 2020 at 0:50

welcome at EE.SE
An example for such a connector can be found here: https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/assmann-wsw-components/AUSB1-DFN-PTR3/5810164 The footprint is just a practical combination of smd and tht to use the board-space in a more efficient way.

I wish you luck with whatever you want to achieve with this board :)

  • \$\begingroup\$ You can say "use the board in more efficient way", or better "to accomodate low-cost low-resolution cheaper PCB manufacturing". \$\endgroup\$ Oct 31, 2020 at 0:52
