Some unique ideas about USB-C connector function!
Now USB-C connectors are everywhere, from charging cables to external hard drives. Although all USB-C connectors look the same, their functions are different.
So when we buy USB adapters and connection lines, we should strictly check whether they conform to the type. Below are some unique insights about the functions of USB-C connectors. Let's take a look at them.
USB-C Connector
In terms of data transmission and power supply, USB-C is the industry standard connector. The USB Implementer Forum certifies the USB standard and develops USB-C connectors.
More than 700 companies are members of the forum, including HP, Apple, Microsoft, Dell and Samsung.
Is the USB-C connector the same as the Microsoft USB connector?
At first glance, the USB-C connector looks like a Micro USB connector. Compared with other USBs, it is elliptical and slightly thicker. The best difference about this USB-C connector is that if you are properly aligned,
there is no need to flip or change the side to insert it, because it has the same interface connector at both ends, which is completely different from other USB connectors used in the past decades.
Compatibility between USB-C and USB 3.1
With a USB-C connector, the default protocol is USB 3.1, 10 times faster than USB 3.0 and 10 gigabits per second. The only drawback is that you can use large and original USB 3.1.
In addition to desktop computers, you are more likely to see a USB 3.1 port with a USB-C interface.
The USB Implementer Forum classifies the USB 3.1 Gen 1 standard into data signaling rates and interfaces that meet USB 3.0. Therefore, when you use version 3.1 of USB (Generation 1),
it will work at the same speed as USB 3.0. USB 3.1 Gen 2 refers to the data signaling rate of 10Gbps. (This is twice as fast as USB 3.0 and matches the speed of a single channel Thunderbolt)
However, before purchasing a USB-C port, you must check the specifications on the PC to be purchased, because not all USB-C ports are the same. Those you encounter support power and data transmission via USB C.
Nowadays, although USB-C supports the connection between HDMI display and DisplayPort and adapter, not every PC has a port to connect with system graphics hardware.
Compatibility of USB-C with Cables and Adapters
As mentioned above, USB-C is compatible with older USB 3.0 ports and is perfectly compatible with USB 3.1 ports. However, because of the new port style,
you need to use plugged cables and adapters to connect any plug without a USB-C connector. If you buy a new laptop, it may come with a connector. But beyond that, you have to buy them in different ways.
