It’s the newest standard: the USB type C will be globally known as the connector USB-C and it takes part to the specification USB 3.0 and ended in August 2014 and was approved the 27th February 2015.
Of course, the question is how will affect this connector to our (technologic) lives and, of course, to our economy. This standard has many advantages Aimed at facilitating everything, making things faster and better.
Connect your cables with your eyes closed
The USB type C is different to the current USB cables or Micro-USB. Connector’s size is similar but its shape is different: it is reversible.
There won’t be just one way to connect these cables to USB-C ports, something really useful. The idea is, also, to transmit different types of signals: data, music, video and energy.
Faster, higher, stronger
Basically: it is a USB made for loads of 100W (20V and 5A), which is more than enough to charge your computer but also to charge, at the same times, some phones. The power flow can be “negotiated” so power supply can be changed anytime and there’s no need to change the cable direction, what it means, a phone could charge a tablet or viceversa.
Data rate is also interesting: 10Gbps, twice the speed of the current USB 3.0.
Is USB-C our future connector?
Enterprises such as SanDisk, LaCie or Apple already use this connector and if you ask for it, here in Customdrives® it is also made because we think USB-C is our future.
First of all, we will have a transitional period where everything will have to be adapted, a small price to pay to improve our life quality, don’t you think?
