USB Type C Technical Features

In December 2013, the USB 3.0 Promotion Team has announced the next-generation USB Type-C connector

The renderings were then ready for mass production in August 2014. The highlight of the new interface is a slimmer design, faster transmission speeds (up to 10Gbps) and more powerful power transmission (up to 100W). The biggest feature of the Type-C double-sided pluggable interface is that it supports the double-side insertion of the USB interface, formally solves the worldwide problem of “USB never inserted” and inserts both front and back. At the same time, the USB data cable used with it must also be more detailed and lighter. [1] 

In summary, USB Type-C has the following features:

1. The maximum data transmission speed reaches 10Gbit/second, which is also the USB 3.1 standard;

2.Type-C interface socket size is about 8.3mm × 2.5mm slim design;

3. Support "positive and negative insertion" functions that can be inserted from both sides. It can withstand 10,000 times of repeated insertion and removal.

4. The standard-size cable with Type-C connector can supply 3A current, and also supports "USB PD" which exceeds the existing USB power supply capability, and can provide up to 100W of power.
