Application and Technical Characteristics of Type-c


When Nokia N1 was officially announced, the official stated that the product would support the latest Type-C USB interface, but it did not receive enough attention from the outside world at that time. However, it seems that Nokia has high expectations for this feature of N1, so it has once again emphasized this feature on its official Twitter account.

Nokia wrote on Twitter: "Nokia N1 uses a double-sided pluggable Type-C interface, which will greatly facilitate user use.

Most people may not know what Type-C double-sided pluggable interface looks like, but industry insiders believe that once this feature becomes popular on mobile devices, it will definitely be welcomed by everyone.  

On March 9, 2015, at the Apple New Product Launch held in the United States, the all-new MacBook unified the power interface, USB interface, DP interface, HDMI interface, and VGA interface on laptops using a USB-C for the first time, marking the first application of USB-C technology in consumer grade laptops. With the arrival of Type-C connectors, data transmission will become more convenient. The biggest feature of USB-C is that both sides can be inserted!

On August 1, 2015, Tecon launched the world's first Type-C interface mobile solid-state drive. This SSD provides the latest Type-C interface, which supports dual sided USB insertion. Tekoxin mobile solid-state drives are also divided into two products: flagship and standard. The flagship is undoubtedly faster, more reliable, and more inclined towards business or enthusiast users. Standard level products are aimed at mainstream users, but the actual transmission speed is also astonishing.

Technical characteristics

In December 2013, the USB 3.0 promotion team announced the rendering of the next generation USB Type-C connector, and it was then ready for mass production starting in August 2014. The highlights of the new interface are its slimmer design, faster transmission speed (up to 10Gbps), and more robust power transmission (up to 100W). The biggest feature of the Type-C double-sided pluggable interface is its support for double-sided USB interface insertion, officially solving the world's problem of "USB never plugs in", with both sides plugged in casually. The USB data cable used in conjunction with it must also be thinner and lighter.

In summary, USB Type-C has the following characteristics:

1. The maximum data transmission speed reaches 10Gbit/s, which is also the standard for USB 3.1;

The size of the Type-C interface socket end is approximately 8.3mm × 2.5mm slim design;

3. Supports the "front and back insertion" function, which can be inserted from both sides, and can withstand 10000 times of repeated insertion and removal;

4. The standard specification connecting wire equipped with Type-C connector can pass 3A current, and also supports "USB PD" with USB power supply capability, providing a maximum of 100W

Appearance characteristics

1. Ultra thin

A thinner body requires thinner ports, which is also one of the reasons why USB-C emerged. The USB-C port is 0.83 cm long and 0.26 cm wide. The old-fashioned USB port is already outdated, with a length of 1.4 centimeters and a width of 0.65 centimeters. This also means that the end of the USB-C data cable will be one-third the size of the standard USB-A data cable plug.

2. No positive or negative

Like Apple's Lightning interface, the front and back of the USB-C port are the same. That is to say, no matter how you insert this port, it is correct. Users do not need to worry about the pros and cons of traditional USB ports.
