We are very close to a new, conspicuous convergence in mobility and technology. From its humble beginnings as a path for keyboards and printers to connect to a PC, Universal Serial Bus (USB) has grown to become more than just a universal serial connection port - it's now a universal battery charger, universal data port and universal gateway for interoperability.
USB Type-C is having an impact on technology far greater than its modestly-sized plug would have you believe. Barely larger than the ubiquitous USB micro Type-B connection found on a preponderance of the world's cell phones and tablets, the new Type-C connection boasts a fourfold increase in conductor density, a fortyfold increase in power handling and a doubling of maximum data transfer rates.
USB Type-C is having a major impact on system design because of its flexible, powerful nature. It's a connector that unifies AV, data and power over a single versatile port with a uniquely compact profile. USB Type-C adoption by manufacturers and the market is the fastest in the history of USB standards. In the world of digital convergence, where the information technology, telecommunications, consumer electronics and content industries are all pushing towards a single, convenient and powerful connection, the rise of USB Type-C really is a conspicuous convergence.
Legrand offers a range of USB-C cables and adapters for a variety of AV situations.
