'[EE] Usb b type socket on Eagle?'

I have a question about the usb b type socket. I found on Eagle and
on ExpressPCB similar devices, but it seems they are slightly
different. In Eagle, the 4 pins of the socket are arranged in a line,
whereas in ExpressPCB they are arranged in a square. Any ideas
why these diffrences.

Also, I looked in my components company, and it seems they have
2 different sockets:

Type B: Vertical PCB Mount - Single - 4 Pole
Type B: RA PCB Mount - Single - 4 Pole

The differences seems to be hinged on the terms "Verticl/RA"
Any ideas what these mean? what is "single - 4 pole"

RA = right angle, so the connector would come in parallel to the PCB.
This kind of connector is used on basically everything. With a
vertical connector, the USB plug would be perpendicular to the PCB.

Single refers to the fact that there's only one USB receptacle, and 4
pole = 4 pins.

The in line one is a USB A connector, or a Mini USB B connector, and the
square is a standard USB B connector.

Hi Randy, thanks for explaining about the socket. Now, my only question
is why the pins in eagle are in a line. Aren't the pins usually arranged
in a quare format, is this a US/Europe difference issue?

As Alan noted, the inline pins are for the A-type connector, and
square pins are for a B-type connector.

I'm not sure what library you're using for the connector, but the one
at ftp://ftp.cadsoft.de/eagle/userfiles/libraries/con-usb-2.lbr does
include several types of USB connector (that's the one I use)
