Male USB type A through-hole connector 48037-0001

#1 Post by jokkebk » 17 Jul 2013, 04:23

Most common through-hole USB type A male connector I've encountered (available even locally here in Finland, and of course from Mouser/Digikey/etc.) is this kind of through-hole version with footprint/part number 48037-0001:

DipTrace already has the SMD sibling of this (part 48037-2200) in the USB pattern library. Thanks to DipTrace's powerful features I can just change its SMD pads to through-hole ones, but I did spend an hour first, looking for the exact through-hole part with board edge markings in the library first, unable to believe such a common part could really be missing. It would be a great and simple addition to the USB library!

Best regards,

Joonas

PS. A bonus feature request: Find pattern using the amount of drill holes / pads as a filter, it's easy to count from the bottom of any component

Have a look at USB-2.5/2H4 in the CONN_IO library. It is a thru hole USB.

The connector names appear to contain:

H (horizontal), V (vertical), number of mtg holes and number of pins.

I think CONN_IO is on the schematic side, but PCB Layout has that part and a dozen other USB-2.5/2H4x variants in the USB side. All are missing the two small drill holes that appear in the SMD "1-134028-1" / "48037/2200" parts that match the small plastic extrusions in the connector. Also missing from those is the outline for board edge (the metal connector has a short notch in the base allowing for the connector to rest snugly on the board, but if the board edge goes too "far" from the connector, it goes beyond the notch and the connector will not fit properly, which would be inconvenient to fix on a ready-made board).

Furthermore, from the silk outline of the component in PCB side it appears USB-2.5/2H4 is for female connector, not the male one. The 48037/2200 SMD part has both the holes for plastic things and board outline, so it would be great (and reassuring) if there was a through-hole version with those features, too.
