What is USB Type-C ?

USB-C is the emerging industry-standard connector for transmitting both data and power. The USB-C connector was developed by the USB Implementers Forum, the group of companies that has developed, certified, and shepherded the USB standard. It counts more than 700 companies in its membership, including Apple, Dell, HP, Intel, Microsoft, and Samsung.

USB-C is set to replace the USB interfaces we’ve used since the mid-1990s.

5 advantages of USB-C

  • It’s small. The new port is half the width and one-third the height of a standard USB connector and only slightly larger than Apple’s Lightning or the micro-USB connectors.
  • It’s reversible. Unlike older USB cable, it doesn’t matter which side is up with a Type-C plug; you can insert it either way.
  • It’s fast. Type-C ports can transfer data using the zippy speeds of the latest version of the USB protocol — up to 10 gigabits per second.
  • It’s powerful. The new connector can provide up to 100 watts of power, enough to power a laptop.
  • It’s flexible. Via adapters, users will be able to connect older devices to Type-C ports, even devices that use non-USB technologies, like DisplayPort, VGA and Ethernet
