USB Type C – A New Technology for Power Delivery and Data

USB Type C, usually referred to as just USB-C, is piloting a new era for delivering power and transmitting data to and from electronic devices. Because the USB-C plug is symmetrical, it can be inserted either way, eliminating the frustrations of earlier USB ports.

USB Type C is much more than just a different connector, it has defined power standards known as the Power Delivery Specifications, which define the amount of current to 5,9,15 and 20 volts.  USB Type C devices communicate directly to the charger to control the amount of power provided.  The ability to supply more power to PED’s and laptops provides much more flexibility than traditional USB Type A.

USB Type C can also transmit data at the same time as the power function is being utilized.  Data transition speeds compliant with USB 2.0 standards are available.  USB-C data and power capacity varies by the manufacturer.
