What is a micro USB connector?

A miniaturized version of the USB, the Micro interface was developed for connecting compact and mobile devices, such as smartphones, MP3, GPS, photo printers and digital cameras.

Micro USB’s are available in 3 different versions, which include Micro-A, Micro-B and Micro-B 3.0.

Micro USB type “A” and type “B” are the smallest USB connectors available. The USB 2.0 Micro-B can support the high-speed transfer rate up to 480 Mbps and up to 5 Gbps for 3.0 . This plug is the standard shape used on newer mobile devices and can fit into a USB 3.0 Micro-B receptacle. However, USB 3.0 Micro-B plugs (male) cannot fit into USB 2.0 Micro-B receptacles (female).
