Do you really know USB-C?
Mar 27, 2018

The USB -c interface is called USB type-c, which belongs to the next generation interface of USB 3.0. Its advantages are thinner design, faster transmission speed (up to 10Gbps) and stronger power transmission (up to 100W).In addition, the usb-c interface also supports double-sided insertion, which is more advanced than USB2.0/USB3.0.

USB type-c interface features.


The old USB port is 14mm * 6.5mm, while the usb-c is only 8.8mm * 2.6mm.

1. No distinction between heads and tails.

Same as the Lightning interface, there is no problem with the plug-in check, claiming that it can withstand 10,000 plugs

3.Fast transmission

The maximum transmission rate of the usb-c port is 10Gb per second, much faster than USB3.0

4.Two-way transmission

Unlike the old USB port, the power can only be transmitted one way, and the power transmission of the usb-c port is two-way, which means that it can have two power transmission modes.

5.Strong power supply

A standard specification connector with a type-c connector can pass a triple-a current and also support a "USB PD" that exceeds the current USB power supply, providing maximum power of 100W.

6. Backward compatibility

The usb-c can be compatible with  older USB standard, but the user needs to buy an additional adapter to be compatible.


In simple terms, the new generation of usb-c is faster than USB, stronger power transmission, smaller interface size, and supports two-way transmission with greater compatibility.
