08:21 AM EDT - Aug,16 2014 - post a comment

A newly designed USB port and cable is about to make its way to upcoming PCs, Laptops and mobile devices. The USB 3.0 Promoter Group today announced the completion of the USB Type-C spec which will allow new devices to have far slimmer USB cables and connectors. The connector will also support SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps (USB 3.1) and USB Power Delivery up to 100W. The design of connector is completely new and has a strong resemblance to the old USB 2.0 Micro-B connections which were far slimmer than general USB 2.0. Even better news for those of us who always struggle putting USB cables into the back of our computers is that it will have reversible plug orientation and cable direction. It won't be long before devices start to show up making use of the Type-C connector, although many of us will need to make use of upcoming adapters to allow us to use the new connector with existing products.
