​Why does Type-C replace other USB interfaces?

2020-2-13 23:30:24

As an office worker, it is essential to use the interface on the computer every day, and the more and more widely used interface is not Apple, but the USB Type-C interface, including Apple computers.  USB Type-C is a type of USB 3.1, and it is compatible with previous generation interfaces such as USB 3.0 and USB 2.0.

Thinner bodies require thinner ports, which is one of the reasons why USB-C was born.  The USB-C port is 0.83 cm long and 0.26 cm wide.  The old USB port is 1.4 cm long and 0.65 cm wide.  This also means that the end of the USB-C data cable will be one-third the size of a standard USB-A data cable plug.  Like Apple's Lightning interface, the front and back of the USB-C port are the same.  In other words, 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.

It is precisely because the Type-C interface can expand many functions, eliminating the need for HDMI / VGA video interface, USB and other interfaces, so notebooks equipped with Type-C interface can be very thin, especially in the new generation of Apple notebooks  The application on the most popular.  It can be said that Apple has led this trend, and the Type-C interface is now standard on flagship phones.  In addition, the Type-C interface has the following advantages:

The first is fast.  Theoretically, the maximum transfer rate of the USB-C port is 10Gb per second.  But Apple says the new MacBook's USB-C port has a maximum transfer rate of 5Gbps.  The maximum output voltage is 20 volts, which can speed up charging.  The USB-A type has a limit transmission rate of 5Gbps and an output voltage of 5 volts.  The second is generalist.  The new MacBook's USB-C port is capable of transmitting data and charging, and can also be used as a video output port to connect external display devices.  The only question is how Apple can satisfy users who want to do all three at the same time.  The third is two-way.  Unlike the old USB port, the power can only be transmitted in one direction. The power transmission of the USB-C port is bidirectional, which means that it can have two ways to send power.  Therefore, users can not only use laptops to charge mobile devices, but also use other devices or mobile power sources to charge laptops.  The fourth is backward compatibility.  USB-C is compatible with the old USB standard, but users need to purchase additional adapters to complete the compatibility.  Apple said that not only does Apple officially sell adapters, third-party companies can also authorize production.

At present, although only flagship phones and ultrabooks are equipped with Type-C interfaces, with the increase in public acceptance and hardware performance upgrades and decline in hardware prices, I believe that Type-C interfaces will be popularized in the notebook / mobile field in the next few years  Of course, Type-C accessories will become more and more abundant, and the price will become lower and lower, becoming the mainstream trend.

In fact, both Type-C and USB-A are continuously developed in order to better serve consumers and meet consumer needs.  Just like the Baojun 530 seven-seat version, more space and more practical configuration are what consumers will seek in the future.  The 2750mm wheelbase exists in a step-by-step manner, using a 2 + 3 + 2 type 7-seater layout. The second row can be tilted 4/6 ratio and the third row can be tilted 5/5 ratio.  It also comes standard with USB interfaces, electric exterior mirrors, aluminum alloy wheels, roof racks, front airbags, ABS anti-lock braking system, EBD electronic braking force distribution system, HHC uphill assist system, ESP  Body stabilization systems, etc.  It is precisely because the Baojun 530 fully meets the needs of consumers that the Baojun 530 has been in a hot selling state since its listing!

It is said that technology changes lives, from a car to a small interface, which are constantly optimized as consumers' needs continue to change, bringing more convenience to people's lives.
