Is USB Type-C mandatory for USB3.1 Gen1 or Gen2 specifications? Is USB Type-C equivalent to USB3.0/3.1?


No. The USB Type-C specification is independent of the USB3.1 Gen1 and Gen2 specifications. We can use the traditional TypeA and TypeB interfaces to support Gen1 or Gen2. The USB Type-C specification is a new specification formulated by USB-IF, which supports up to 100W power transmission and forward and reverse interpolation. USB Type-C connector can be designed as Gen1 or Gen2.
