USB Type C


USB Type-C (also called USB-C or Type-C) is a specification of the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF). The aim was to create a connector that transmits more than just pure data and at the same time no longer has to be plugged in a specific orientation. Correspondingly, new sockets were used in notebooks, smartphones and other devices.

USB Type-C (also called USB-C or Type-C) is a specification of the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF). The aim was to create a connector that transmits more than just pure data and at the same time no longer has to be plugged in a specific orientation. Correspondingly, new sockets were used in notebooks, smartphones and other devices.

USB Type-C ports can be found today in numerous systems, which is why you will of course also get used notebooks, tablets and PCs with USB-C ports. Technically, the port uses 24 pins and allows high data rates, especially when using USB 3.1 and USB 3.2. For external storage media and SSDs, the interface is particularly suitable.

In addition, there are various other modes in USB Type-C, the so-called Alternate Modes. This also enables the transmission of DisplayPort signals or a higher power supply. Overall, this has advantages, especially with regard to docking solutions, since you only need to connect one cable for a multitude of functions.

With us, you will not only get complete systems with USB Type-C, but also peripherals, including, among other things, the mentioned docking solutions. Please note, however, that always the devices involved must support the desired modes. In addition, USB Type-C is occasionally confused with Thunderbolt 3. Thunderbolt 3 is in this respect but rather another possible additional function.
