The development of the next generation of USB connectors, now known as Type-C, up apace. The Type-C will be a thinner than USB 3.0 (in picture), as commenting on the USB 3.0 Promoter Group, which has among its members major companies such as Microsoft, HP and Intel, for example connector.
|Type-C the future of USB|
USB connector future be able to transfer data at a rate of 10Gbit / s (like the USB 3.1) and some apparently recall the already known microUSB (because it will be smaller). As might be expected, the next generation will have a great advantage over the current: will be reversible, ie no longer have to worry about putting the connector in the correct orientation. This type of design, similar to the Lightning, the road will remove one of the major frustrations of USB cables. How bad about all this? That will not be compatible with existing USB ports.
The Type-C connector is being developed from the technology of USB 3.1 and USB 2.0. Something we should clarify the matter is that the Type-C USB 3.1 connectors belong to the standard (announced about 4 months ago), but will be a new specification of it and be ready until the middle of next year.
