USB Type-C: All You Need To Know
In this busy world no one have enough time to spent precious times for just copying data. Do you still use an older, larger USB connector.USB Type-C is just all about the speed .This is the gift from USB Implementers Forum which have spented a lot of time and after a hard work they reached to this beautiful result.Let us know all about the USB Type-C.
This collection of differently shaped connectors for different-size devices is coming to a close. USB Type-C is a new connector standard that’s very small. It’s about a third the size of an old USB Type-A plug. This is a single connector standard . Every device should be able to use. You’ll just need a single cable. Whether if you’re connecting an external hard drive to your laptop or charging your smartphone from a USB charger. That one tiny connector can be small. and fit into a mobile device. It will be the powerful port you use to connect all the peripherals to your laptop. The cable itself has USB Type-C connectors at the both ends .
Alternate Mode dedicates some of the physical wires in the USB Type-C cable for direct device.To host transmission of alternate data protocols. The four high-speed lanes, two sideband pins, and – for dock, detachable device and permanent cable applications only. Two USB 2.0 pins and one configuration pin can be used for Alternate Mode transmission. Apple’s USB-C Digital Multiport Adapter looks like a good example of this in action, offering an adapter that allows you to connect an HDMI or VGA output, larger USB Type-A connector, and smaller USB Type-C connector via a single port. The mess of USB, HDMI, Display Port, VGA, and power ports on typical laptops can be streamlined into a single type of port.
Hardware and OS support
Windows 10 is supporting USB 3.1 and USB Type-C. OS X is supporting USB 3.1 and USB Type-C. Android M will support USB Type-C for faster charging.
Among the first devices to accommodate a USB Type-C cable are the Nokia N1 tablet, Apple’s 2015 MacBook (which has only a single first-generation USB 3.1 port), and Google’s second Chromebook Pixel. The first smartphone that accommodates a USB Type-C cable is from a Chinese company LeTV.Recently, OnePlus 2, successor of OnePlus One mobile, announced USB Type-C in its specifications
USB Power Delivery
The USB Power Delivery specification ups this power delivery to 100 watts. It’s bi-directional, so a device can either send or receive power. And this power can be transferred at the same time the device is transmitting data across the connection. Apple’s new MacBook and Google’s new Chromebook Pixel both use their USB Type-C ports as their charging ports. This could spell the end of all those proprietary laptop charging cables. with everything charging via a standard USB connection. You could charge your laptop from one of those portable battery packs you charge your smartphones and other portable. devices from today. You could plug your laptop into an external display connected to a power cable.
USB Type-C and USB 3.1
USB 3.1 is a new USB standard. USB 3‘s theoretical bandwidth is 5 Gbps, while USB 3.1’s is 10 Gbps. That’s double the bandwidth, as fast as a first-generation Thunderbolt connector.
USB Type-C isn’t the same thing as USB 3.1. USB Type-C is just a connector shape, and the underlying technology could just be USB 2 or USB 3.0. In fact, Nokia’s N1 Android tablet uses a USB Type-C connector, but underneath it’s all USB 2.0 — not even USB 3.0. However, these technologies are closely related.
There is not only Apple but soon all the manufacturers will start using this standard. So what we have to do is wait for the compatibility for all the devices to receive the Speedzzzz.
