Through a press release the USB 3.0 Promoter Group has announced the first details about how the future of USB. Its director, Brad Saunders is confident that the new version of the connector will catch up with design trends in terms of size and ease of use, and will enable a whole new range of products with thickness less than today.
The Future of USB is now known as Type-C specifications and share with the USB 3.1 version, but brings new features that will be very well received by the public. First, be reversible, this means that the frustrations and the need to set that part of the USB cable are trying to connect to our device are over.
Type-C is also smaller: the size will be similar to the connector microUSB or Lighting developed by Intel with support from Apple. The two features that are the greatest innovation of Type-C appear to have been modified to compete fairly with Lighting Connector Apple, which is small and reversible.
The looming problem with this new standard connector is the incompatibility of old cables. It has been reported from the USB 3.0 Promoter Group to a specification for the development will include adapters.The transition process will be a time in which we will be surrounded adapters but will need to spend if you will be adopting this new technology has clear advantages over the previous version of the same.
Still no known estimated date for implementation of this new technology, its success, as always, depend on the adoption by other companies. Intel has already spoken for, and probably the biggest hardware manufacturers in the world who are involved in the market of smartphones and tablets will also support Type-C as the smaller mostly benefits such mobile devices.
