Do you know what functions the Type-C interface has?
Nowadays, more and more mobile phones, notebooks, tablet computers and other devices choose to carry Type-C interface. Why is this interface favored by the market, and what are its benefits? Today’s Speed Shark Class will talk to you about the Type-C interface.
01 What is the Type-C interface?
The concept of Type-C interface is explained on Baidu Encyclopedia:Type-C is the latest USB interface form factor, and its volume is much smaller than Tpe-A and Type-B. There is no difference between the positive and negative directions of this interface, and it can be plugged and unplugged at will. In addition, Type-C is an interface type that can be applied to both PC (master device) and external devices (slave devices, such as mobile phones), which is epoch-making.
From the appearance of the interface, the biggest feature of Type-C isPros and cons. Players who are familiar with DIY hardware know that whether it is CPU, memory stick, graphics card, hard disk interface, they all have a "silly-proof port" design to prevent the interface from being plugged in and unable to boot.
The USB-A type interface we use most often has a fool-proof design. However, due to the small size of the interface, miracles of vigorous efforts occur from time to time. The USB Type-C interface solves this problem from the source. Because the 24 pins of this interface are symmetrically distributed in the center of the contact function. In this way, the equipment can successfully identify and realize the operation of complete functions when inserting and inserting in reverse.
02 What are the advantages of Type-C?
The USB Type-C interface is more convenient to plug and unplug, and more importantly, it has strong compatibility.
Up to 10Gb/s data transmission bandwidth
The most common use for connecting different devices to each other is naturally data exchange. The latest USB transmission protocol standard is USB 3.1 Gen2, and its theoretical bandwidth can reach a transmission rate of up to 10Gb/s. As the latest USB interface shape standard, the USB Type-C interface naturally also supports the USB 3.1 Gen2 standard, and can reach a reading and writing speed of 1GB per second during file transfer.
Maximum power supply of 100W
In addition to data transmission, this interface also has power transmission capabilities. The USB Type-C interface is equipped with USB PD (USB Power Delivery Protocol), which supports up to 20V/5A power output, which is 100W charging power.
4K@60Hz video display output
In addition to supporting PD fast charge protocol, this interface also supports DP Altmode video output protocol. This is achieved by adding a Display Port video bus to the original USB bus in the Type-C interface. That is to say, the video output function of the Type-C interface is USB+DP. Whether it supports DP1.2 or 1.4 interface protocol, its bandwidth supports high specifications of 4K@60HzVideo playback.
When the notebook is connected with an external display device, it is not necessary to use a power cord to power the notebook. The keyboard and mouse can also control the notebook through the USB-A interface on the display, which is the extended function of USB HUB .
This not only solves the problem of messy desktop cables, it is also more convenient when the equipment is transferred. When you are off work or in a meeting, you can unplug a Type-C cable and go, greatly improving efficiency. This is a function that the traditional HDMI and DP interfaces cannot achieve.
Don't forget, the phone also has a Type-C interface. Hold a notebook while discussing plans? Only a monitor that supports Type-C interface and a mobile phone can complete the conference communication. One line = N lines, enjoy lightweight office. Simple, convenient and worry-free.
Therefore, the USB Type-C interface is not only easy to plug and unplug, but also extremely compatible with equipment. It can not only achieve high-standard data transmission and power supply, but also the current top level in video signal transmission specifications.
In the Type-C era, using a monitor with USB-C port expansion can effectively reduce the number of cables, which is a boon for most people. For example, with a Type-C charging power of up to 65WPhilips279C9, It is highly recommended.
The original LGD-IPS screen it is equipped with has high specifications, and the 27-inch 4K resolution is satisfactory for most users, and the screen display effect is very delicate. And it also has a full screen design with four-sided micro-frames, which brings users a better screen look and feel, allowing you to enjoy the vast horizon!
