That's a receptacle (female). I've found theses, but what I was asking about is a plug (male).
Most of these are the wrong gender... So if I further select gender to male of this parametric list I get 3 results:
* The first, a Kycon part. I don't know why it is marked as male in the online catalog... The description has "SCKT" (presumably meaning socket), and the data sheet clearly shows the female/receptacle/socket part, not the male/plug part. I should probably alert Mouser of the error.
* The second, an Adam Tech (never heard of these guys) part. Must be a brand new part on the market. Especially since mouser has them marked as new and 8wk factory lead time, and minimum qty of 1000. I should probably add to my spec the maximum "minimum order" should be like 5 or 10... Hmm, looking further, that part number doesn't even show in the catalog linked as the datasheet. Must be brand-spanking-new.
* The third, I'm sorry. I didn't specify clearly enough. I didn't say that I'm looking for a Type A
plug. But it's an obsolete part anyway.
Thanx for finding the second one though. I had actually given up hope a few months ago, and had the opportunity again to incorporate USB3 again (due to a pre-release board change due to another component's inventory issues). So, instead of searching and trying to find something I didn't expect to (much like slamming my self against a door, while not expecting the door to open), I asked here where I figured there is a broad scope of people who have collectively experienced the vast majority of what electronic components are out there. Now that I have a glimmer of hope of a crack showing in the availability door, I'm off to fling myself at it again.
