Speak of the USB Type - C will certainly and USB3.1 associated, many science and technology, media and even USB3.1 will be confused with USB Type - C, what is more, some manufacturers simply pick up the USB Type - C interface, promote their has all the advantages of USB 3.1 however, USB 3.1 and USB Type - what is the relationship between C? What are the advantages of USB type-c that supports usb3.1?
As early as 2015, discussions about the USB type-c have entered the public eye. In fact, it's been predicted that 2016 will be the year that USB type-c really breaks out. In the current form, domestic phone manufacturers are still very concerned about the USB type-c, and the flagship products of each brand are equipped with a USB type-c interface. On the other hand, manufacturers such as HTC and LG have moved on. Even samsung is offering a USB type-c Galaxy note 6. It can be said that the popularity of USB type-c is in order.
In fact, when it comes to USB type-c, you're bound to have a relationship with the USB3.1. Many tech media even confuse USB3.1 with USB type-c. What's more, some of them just carried the USB type-c interface, but promoted it to have all the features of USB 3.1, to deceive consumers. So, what's the connection between USB 3.1 and USB type-c?
USB 3.1 is not the same thing as USB type-c
Strictly speaking, USB 3.1 is a transmission standard. With the development of USB 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0, USB 3.1 has come a long way in all aspects. And USB type-c is an interface standard exactly. There are three USB 3.1 interface standards, including USB Type A, USB Type B (Micro USB) and the latest USB type-c. At present, the Type A interface is mainly used as the connection port of computer and other equipment. Micro USB is mainly used in small devices such as smart phones, which are widely used. As for USB type-c, due to various features, it is known as the most promising interface standard for all interfaces. It is worth noting that there is no absolute correlation between USB 3.1 and USB type-c. Knowing that a USB type-c interface does not necessarily represent its support for USB 3.1 standards. The USB 3.1 standard does not necessarily have to be a USB type-c interface. So what are the advantages of USB type-c interfaces that support USB 3.1?
Higher transmission speed
Speaking of high speed, we must think of lightning port. However, due to the limitation of cost, the lightning interface has not been popularized to this day. The interface with lightning is USB 3.1, which theoretically speeds up to 10 GBPS per second, although not as fast as the latest lightning bolt, but it is enough for everyday use. ZUK Z1 is the first mobile phone in China to support the USB type-c standard. In addition, in view of the popularity of USB, the latest lightning bolt interface will adopt the USB type-c standard and its versatility will be greatly enhanced.
Second, the ultra-thin
The development of portable digital devices such as smartphones is light and thin. As we all know, as a highly industrialized product, the inner space of a smartphone is a land of great interest. The USB type-c interface is significantly reduced in length and width compared to the old Micro USB interface. For mobile digital products, USB type-c is clearly a better standard. Presumably soon, USB type-c will definitely replace the Micro USB interface, becoming the new standard for mobile digital products.
Both sides can be inserted
Since apple introduced the Lightning port, countless consumers have been thinking about how to use the same interface as the Lightning interface. Fortunately, USB type-c solves this problem perfectly, and like the Lightning interface, the USB type-c interface is the same. This means that users can be very human without worrying about the pros and cons of the USB interface.
4. Charging speed
In the absence of a breakthrough in battery technology, fast-charging has become the best way to solve the problem. However, due to the size of the old port, the maximum output can only be 5V. However, USB type-c is quite different. It can provide up to 20V voltage and 5A current output. The maximum output power reaches 100W. This allows USB type-c to take on most of the charging requirements for digital devices on the market. At the moment, apple's Macbook has been powered by a USB type-c interface. Presumably soon, the adoption of this standard will become more and more. USB type-c is different from the USB port in the past, which can not only be used to charge and transmit data, but also can be used as the MIDI output line for PTP photo transmission. With the simplicity of electronic design, USB type-c brings more possibilities to people. Perhaps not far away, the cable interface that can be found on a digital device is left with a USB type-c.
Every upgrade of the electronic device interface is the result of a strong consumer drive, and USB type-c is no exception. Now, although the USB Type - C has benefits, but relatively expensive accessories become the biggest obstacle to a USB Type - C popularization, fortunately, the popularity of any standard are destined to experience such a stage, believe that with the manufacturer's efforts, the USB Type - C will quickly become irreplaceable part in the life.
