Reversible USB cables are almost here

Post by blu0 on Fri Aug 15, 2014 6:30 am

The next generation of USB connectors is finally ready for production. The completion of the USB Type-C specification has just been announced, meaning we will soon have a new cable and connector scheme designed for both mobile and larger devices. Similar in size to the Micro USB port found on most phones today, the Type-C's most exciting feature is its reversible design, which will allow users to ignore orientation when plugging in one of the new smaller, sleeker cables.

"Representatives from the PC, mobile, automotive, and IoT industries have been knocking down our door anticipating this new standard," said USB 3.0 Promoter Group chairman Brad Saunders. Although the Type-C plug and receptacle cannot be directly paired with their predecessors, the newly released specification defines adaptors for existing products. Technical details will be released at developer conferences that are currently being planned.
