USB 3.1 Type C Connectors Are Here


Central Components Manufacturing is pleased to announce our newest product line, USB 3.1 type C connectors.  This revolutionary new standard to USB connectivity has many advantages over it’s predecessors.

The round design shape of USB C plugs & receptacles allows reversible connections, no matter which way you flip the plug.  That’s right, no more flipping your plug back & forth in the dark.  The size of C type USB connectors is small enough to be universal for all types of modern mobile devices and applications.  Along with this, USB 3.1 allows the support of various other types of protocols (HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort) through the use of adapters.  No more keeping track of proprietary cords and connectors for each different application.

Previous USB standards didn’t provide much power for charging.  2.5 watts was the most you could get to charge your common cellphone.  USB 3.1 has boosted the power to a whopping 100 watts.  That’s enough to charge a high end laptop, for example.  Not only this, but the connection is bi-directional, so devices can both give or receive power.  Data connection speeds have also been doubled from 5Gbps with 3.0 to 10Gbps with 3.1.  USB 3.1 is also backwards compatible with all previous USB standards.

With the release of USB 3.1, along with the new C type design, connectivity for the growing number of devices we all own today should become much easier.
