Abstract

The present invention relates to the symmetric A type usb receptacle which is easily connected with usb plug regardless of the relative orientation of the receptacle and plug. This is achieved by adding electrical contacts symmetrically and electronic sensor circuit which can detect the relative orientation of the receptacle and plug. The sensor circuit contains microcontroller and analog multiplexer to route the usb signal path. The present invention contains symmetric contact portion, sensor portion to detect which surface of the symmetric contact portion is connected to the usb plug, the control portion to route the usb signal path through the detected contacts.
