CONNECTIVITY FOR A NEW WORLD... Over the last 14 years we have all become used to connecting our devices via whats known as USB or its full name Universal Serial Bus. This interface connects many devices to a computer to charge, sync and transfer data. Whether it’s an external hard drive, camera, mouse, printer or scanner. The physical connection to transfer data between devices generally has / is a USB cable What Is USB-C? USB-C is the hot, new industry standard (developed by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) for connectivity and power. It is faster (up to 10 Gbps - it can download an HD movie in 30 seconds) , more powerful (allows for backward charging between devices up to 3A and 100 watts) and better quality for audio and video. (4K video and Ultra HD music) Over time time it will become the norm across all consumer electronics manufacturers. The standard USB connector you’re most familiar with is USB Type-A. It’s large and not best suited to the growing trend for micro thickness devices be they tablets, TV’s or smart phones. Whats driving the demand is that all these other devices want to use USB but cant accomodate the size. Those larger USB ports simply won’t fit in smart - phones, digital cameras, game controllers and all the other devices out there you might want to plug in via USB. So many other shapes of connector were born, including “micro” and “mini” connectors.
