The Difference Between USB 3.1 And USB Type-C
Apr 19, 2018

Speaking of the USB3.1 interface, I think many people will think that there is only one interface: USB 3.1 Type-C interface, it is not true, that's just one of them.

What is the difference between USB 3.1 and USB Type-C? Strictly speaking, USB 3.1 is a transmission standard. After the development of USB 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0, USB 3.1 has made great progress in all aspects. USB Type-C, exactly, is an interface standard. There are three USB 3.1 interface standards, USB Type A, USB Type B (Micro USB) and the latest USB Type-C. At present, the Type A interface is mainly used as a connection port for computers and other devices. Micro USB is mainly used in small devices such as smart phones and has a wide range of applications. As for the USB Type-C, due to various characteristics, it is known as the interface standard that most hopefully unites the interfaces.


It is worth noting that there is no absolute correlation between USB 3.1 and USB Type-C. Knowing that there is a USB Type-C interface does not necessarily mean that it supports the USB 3.1 standard. The USB 3.1 standard is not necessarily the USB Type-C interface. At this point, do not be deceived by bad vendors. Therefore, all this knowledge is very necessary for everyone to know.
