USB 3.0 to get a reversible type-C cable

Posted on Friday, April 04 2014 @ 16:15:05 CEST by


Foxconn showed off artist renderings of a new Type-C USB 3.0 connector with an orientation-independent design. The connector is a bit larger than micro-USB, it measures 8.3mm x 2.5mm and you can see it in the picture below. The design is expected to be finalized this summer and the first devices with the new Type-C connector should hit the market before Christmas.
The new standard connector allows for the maximum USB 3.1 throughput rate of 10Gbps and possibly higher rate in the future. It can also support support scalable power charging up to 100 watts. Phys.org reports that another nice feature of the new plug will be an audible click when it is correctly inserted into a compatible device. Also certified plugs must be capable of enduring 10,000 insertions/unpluggings.
