What is the USB C interface, USB-C knowledge popularization

The full name of USB-C is USB Type-C interface, which is an interface specification consisting of Type-C plug and Type-C socket. The highlight lies in a slimmer design, faster transmission speed (up to 10Gbps), stronger power transmission (up to 100W), and the USB-C interface also supports double-sided insertion, which can be plugged in on both sides, compared to USB2 .0/USB3.0 is more advanced. Among various mobile devices and personal computers, USB-C has become the most promising data interface. In 2017, Intel announced that it would completely waive the technical license fee for the Thunderbolt compatible USB-C interface. This means that the cost of the USB-C interface will drop.

USB-C interface features

1. Ultra-thin

The old USB port is 14mm * 6.5mm long, while the USB-C is only 8.4mm * 2.6mm.

2. Regardless of pros and cons

Like the Lightning interface, there will be no problems regardless of whether it is plugged in or reversed. It is claimed to withstand 10,000 repeated plugs and unplugs.

3. Fast transmission speed

The maximum transfer rate of the USB-C port is 10Gb per second, which is much faster than USB3.0.

4. Two-way transmission

Unlike the old USB port, the power can only be transmitted in one direction. The power transmission of the USB-C port is bidirectional, which means it can have two transmission power modes.

5. Strong power supply capability

The standard specification cable equipped with Type-C connector can pass 3A current, and it also supports “USB PD” that exceeds the existing USB power supply capacity, and can provide a maximum of 100W of power.

6. Backward compatibility

USB-C can be compatible with the old USB standard, but users need to purchase an additional adapter to complete the compatibility

USB-C is endowed with better media attributes, faster transmission speed, and better compatibility with charging. The new generation of USB-C has a faster transmission speed, stronger power transmission, smaller interface size, and supports two-way transmission with stronger compatibility.
