However, there are many rumors that have emerged around this multifunctional USB 3.1 type C that are not entirely true. It is true that this connector allows more features than the traditional one, but it is not superman, after all it is a simple connector, without denying that it is a step above the standard USB.


USB 3.1

This type of connector is the logical evolution of the USB that we have always known. Several updates of the USB standard have already passed (now in the 3), but the connector has remained the same. Its use is more widespread than ever, although it is large, old and can only be connected in a single direction. Being such a great connector, manufacturers started to create smaller versions of it such as the USB Mini and the USB Micro.

However, this connector exceeds the previous updates in terms of power. The USB 3.1 has updated the USB 3.0 standard at a speed of 10 Gbits / s, a speed of transfer of present and future data. The USB association created in July 2013 the new version of the standard protocol, the USB 3.1 with a higher data transfer rate called SuperSpeed ​​USB 10Gbit / s, published by USB-IF.

USB 3.1 type C

This type of connector maximizes the load speed that can transmit, is smaller, can be entered on either side and also allows the USB Power Delivery function that establishes an electrical transfer limit of up to 100 W, enough to charge your smartphone, tablet, and even, laptop. This USB 3.1 type C supposes the elimination of all the chargers of the future portable ones. A multi-purpose connector in which in addition to charging your device, you can load your laptop with the charger you want, not with which you come by default, you can even charge it with an external battery if you wish. This, without a doubt, opens a great projection to the USB 3.1 type C while the inevitable extinction of the traditional USB begins.

Another advantage of USB 3.1 type C is that all devices will use this same connector. In addition, the cables will have the same two terminations, eliminating the multitude of different cables that we have to use today, one for the camera, another for the mobile, another for the laptop etc. In addition, this USB, being nothing more than a connector, supports several protocols using alternative modes, which allows it to be used as digital video and audio output (HDMI), DisplayPort output, analog video output (VGA), etc.
