What you need to know about the new USB standard Type-C
If you think about, whether you’re in the office or at home, you may find around at least several devices equipped with a Universal Serial Bus (USB). Overall, about three billion USB ports are delivered each year and it’s certainly the most successful type of peripheral connection.
Today, however, USB is already behind the new standard Thunderbolt as both speed and ease of use. But things may change with the new USB standard Type-C, which was presented during this year’s event CES 2015. USB standard “type C” will unify fully USB connector and charging and data transmitting cables will have the same connectors for input and output, replacing older models A and B type.
USB Type-C can be associated with any kind of devices of different brands, including computers, telephones and devices for data storage. Here is 3 things that need to know about the new USB standard Type-C.
1. Easier can turn it on
No more fiddling to make sure the cable is plugged in the right way, because “Type-C” can not be inserted incorrectly, as it is symmetrical and there is no “upper and lower” side.
2. The transfer of data and the possibility of power have been greatly improved
USB C will be a faster data transfer – 10 Gbps, which is twice the transfer speed of USB 3.0 (5 Gbps) and more power, which means that the speed and power of hard drives, phones and other devices will become faster. They even can get even thinner hulls, as the height of the “Type-C” is much smaller. Type-C ports are measuring only 8.4 mm by 2.6 mm.
3. USB Type-C will support video 5K resolution
Thanks to the new DisplayPort Alternate Mode, the upcoming USB Type-C connectors can be connected not only with smartphones and tablets, but also laptops, monitors, computers and other gadgets, such as DisplayPort signals transmitted at a speed of 8.1Gbps. In parallel, the new connector will carry SuperSpeed USB information with 10Gbps and can play video with 5K resolution of 5120 x 2880 pixels.http://szlifestyle.com/sz/2015/03/13/what-you-need-to-know-about-the-new-usb-standard-type-c/https://i1.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/sz_USB-type-C-plug-interface.jpg?fit=600%2C316https://i1.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/sz_USB-type-C-plug-interface.jpg?resize=150%2C150TECH NEWSTechnologyIf you think about, whether you're in the office or at home, you may find around at least several devices equipped with a Universal Serial Bus (USB).
