TE Connectivity – 2108877-1 and 21088831: Waterproof IP68 Micro USB 2.0 Connector

As consumer electronics get thinner and smaller, they become increasingly vulnerable to water and dust. Being able to support electronic devices with waterproof and dustproof components is just as important as footprint compatibility.

With this in mind, TE Connectivity (TE) introduces the Waterproof IP68 Micro USB Connector Type B. Designed to seal the connector perimeter, it helps prevent moisture and debris from penetrating inside the shell, supporting an improved user experience.

(Note: In addition to the connector, sealing is required in order to make the device waterproof. Please also see part 2108883-1)
