In addition to B Type connectors, Samtec also carries a full line of A Type and mini USB interfaces and standard (USBC Series) and custom cable assemblies.

Samtec’s full line of I/O interfaces includes D-Subs, Mod Jacks, Firewire and USB, and Mini-DINs. In addition, Samtec has a large variety of Panel-to-Panel systems for High Speed and Rugged I/O applications.
