What is USB Type-C and Why We are Excited About It
Thursday, August 20th, 2015 | Author: Elaine

USB Type-C is an USB interface(connector) defined by USB Implementers Forum, Inc., creators of USB technology. Welcome to USB Type-C! Apple’s new MacBook has implemented the USB Type-C port, which will be the future modern product of USB Port.

USB Type-C Features

USB Type-C Features

From the shape, USB type C is greatly different from the common USB Type A. Although the USB technology has developed from the USB 2.0 to USB 3.0, and USB 3.1, the appearance of the port we mostly use is USB Type A, which has a right and wrong side when you plug it in.

With the newly designed USB type C, you needn’t worry about reversing the usb cable when plugging it in.

Let’s first get an overview of USB type C, except this easy plug feature.

  1. USB Type-C is a specification for a reversible-plug connector for USB devices and USB cabling.
  2. Rather slimmer and thinner than USB type-A.
  3. typeA and type C

    USB Type-A (Left) and USB Type-C(Right)

    As the following picture shows, the right side USB type-c is much smaller and thinner than the left USB Type-A. A Type-C port measure is just 8.4mm by 2.6mm. This means it’s small enough to work for even the future smallest peripheral devices.

  4. USB type C is USB 3.1 standard. High Speed as 10M bps and as a power port. 2X  Transferring speed of the USB 3.0.
  5. The USB-C connector supports DisplayPort, HDMI, power, USB, and VGA. Notably absent is Thunderbolt.
  6. USB Type-C is backward compatible but requires adapters. It’s fully compatible electrically with USB 3.0, though obviously it won’t plug in physically without an adapter. It is fresh that USB needs an adapter.
  7. Power Supports:

Indications are that the USB-C standard supports at least 100 watts of power delivery, so it’s possible that USB-C could replace most power adapters as a standard in the future. Using USB to power a laptop isn’t new, though. Look at the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro $1,299.00 at Lenovo, which has a full-size USB 3.0 power connector.

Look at the connector interface of USB type-C.

Are there any latest USB Type-C applications in consumer products?

Yes. There are booming. Besides the Apple MacBook port, there are more and more USB Type c products emerge.

Watch this Video about USB type-c by expert of PCmag:

I have collect some USB Type C products in the latest days:

  • Lattice Semiconductor Expands USB Type-C Product Family
  • Asus Releases ZenPad Flagship With USB Type-C
  • Google Nexus 5 2015 Release Update: Fingerprint Sensor, USB Type C

For Adapters:

The majority of USB type-c adapters are the USB Type-C to USB Type-A adapters.

USB type-c to USB 2.0 adapters for power

USB type-C to USB 2.0 female cable

USB Type-C to Mini USB data power adapter

Apple USB Type-C to USB Adapters.

Thought we need adapters to transferring data between USB Type C and common USB products. It is not long before we do not need adapters when the USB Type-C becomes more popular.

USB Implementers Forum, which is the creator of USB Type-C, says that Type-C USB is designed to be future-proof. In the future, there will be more and more USB Type-C devices for the fastest USB connectors. When USB Type-C becomes as popular as the current USB Type-A, it will be easier when we working with devices. We will hold tiny USB devices for both data and power connections. Just welcome the smart digital connection and cables of USB Type-c of USB 3.1

Magic Mouse Wannabe

Asus may be better known for their netbooks and motherboards, but they occasionally take an interest in peripherals, namely the ‘Pulse Rate’ mouse and Eee Stick. For your consideration, they deliver the WX-DL Mouse. In the Sisyphean effort to build a better mouse, this is definitely an option, albeit not quite as one would hope. In nearly 30 years of commercial use, the basic shape and use are relatively unchanged. Asus’ WX-DL mouse is named for one of its designers, David Lewis. David has given this a bit of a 90’s look with a chrome finished exterior and dark accents. The all aluminum body should feel cool to the touch as well as the eye. The top surface is a touch sensitive control system that can recognize some gestures. It also has active areas that function as remote control buttons for media players.
While the combination of mouse and multi-touchpad is currently championed by Apples Magic Mouse, this worthy suitor may be a PC friendly alternative. You must be willing to forgo the desire to bounce pinballs off it to beat Tommy’s high score. These are available for sale at various vendors for roughly $79 and should be a bit easier to track down than truly revolutionary Cylo/Orbit mouse of years past. We’ll wait for some hands-on reviews to see if the touch surface can finally replace that awkward scroll wheel we rely on so much.

Wireless Multi-touch Mouse
Friday, October 29th, 2010 | Author: Grace

Forty years after the invention of the computer mouse, there’s apparently still room for improvement for this ubiquitous input device. The most revolutionary change is undoubtedly from mechanical to optical mouse. Now that the whole world is embracing touch controls and that Apple already has its own multi-touch mouse hybrid, SPEEDLINK is trying to catch up for the PC with its own version of multi-touch mouse. With the SPEEDLINK Cue Wireless Multitouch Mouse allows you to flick vertically to scroll or horizontally to navigate through pages. You can also customize any commands you want, but keep in mind that the Cue mouse apparently recognizes gestures with one or two fingers. Granted, the mouse surface may not have enough room for three fingers anyway; otherwise, it would be as big as a trackpad. Don’t expect this wireless hybrid mouse to give you any side thumb button as there’s none. At least the Cue gives you up to 8m of wireless freedom via its 2.4Ghz nano transceiver.

TRON:Legacy Keyboard & Mouse
Tuesday, June 29th, 2010 | Author: Grace

razer_tron_legacy_keyboard_mouse_news

TRON, the movie that captured our imaginations and united young and old at the dawn of the graphical evolution for computing, is about to return. The original TRON is still near to our hearts and we challenge you to find someone who didn’t dream of racing Light-Cycles or Frisbee fighting. As weak as that may sound or the TRON Guy makes it look, the TRON movie is bound to be epic. Gamer favorite Razer has recently shown off their TRON:Legacy inspired gaming keyboard and mouse. Made of the same high grade materials that comprise all Razer gaming devices.
Actually, having Razer make a special TRON device is kind of redundant. They already specialize in glowing and futuristic gaming accessories. Please see any of their keyboard, mice, headsets or joysticks for examples of glowing gaming gear. Besides the extra extra cool lighting effects the over-sized mouse wheel is the only obvious variation from the normal slick looks of Razer gear. If you want to take a look at these newest additions to Razer’s line you’ll have to line up at the San Diego Comic-Con next month. Actual release of the items will likely be available closer to the release of the movie slated for December of this year.
