The USB 3.1 standard introduces the new symmetrical/reversible Type C connector. The new connector is only slightly larger than the older mini and micro Type B connectors, which means that it can be used on mobile devices, replacing the existing use of mini or micro connectors. Also, unlike the earlier use of different connectors for the host (Type A) and peripheral (Type B) devices, the Type C connector is used at both ends. Best of all, the connector is symmetrical, which means no more fumbling around to figure out which side is supposed to be on top. Just grab either end and plug it in!
- New reversible Type C connector plugs in the first time, every time!
- Use a single cable for power, video, networking, and data
- USB 3.1 SuperSpeed+ supports up to 10Gbps data rate
- Charge and power devices with up to 100 watts of power
In addition to the new connector, the USB 3.1 standard increases the
data transfer rate to 10GBps, which is fast enough to carry full HD
video and multichannel, uncompressed audio. The standard also increases
the power handling capabilities to 100 watts, which means that USB C
will replace existing power, video, networking, and data cables. Apple
is taking this to the extreme, with the latest MacBook Air® featuring
only a single USB C port for charging, video, and connecting peripheral
This 4-inch Gigabit Ethernet adapter features a male Type C connector on one end and a female RJ45 connector on the other end.
