Tyco Electronics released a new USB 3.0 connector, which has retained all the great features of previous generations of USB interconnects while improving upon them in the areas of performance and power management. This USB 3.0 connector meets all standards of USB-IF. It supports 5 Gbps data rate for a fast “sync-n-go”, offers a 10X performance increase over USB 2.0, which makes downloading HD movies faster. In addition, the USB 3.0 connector is backward compatible with USB 2.0 while offering optimized power efficiency by eliminating device polling and reducing active and idle power requirements. The connector allows for the unit load of 150 mA up to six unit loads (which is 900 mA, an 80 percent increase over USB 2.0 at a registered maximum of 500 mA). This means that USB 3.0 has up to 80 percent more power capacity based on the configuration of the device.
