Ever since Steve Jobs launched the MacBook Air, world-leading technology brands have been scrambling to produce more and better innovative technologies. The idea of technology being meant for use for the benefit of humankind is at the heart of these innovation efforts. The desire to collectively unseat these companies is wholly understandable. Most of these companies are in a race towards the goal of producing technology that can be observed and understood by anyone, anywhere, anytime.


Most electronic devices, such as laptops and other computer equipment will include at least one standard USB Type-A port, so it’s fair to say that USB connectors have been around for a long time. Smaller devices like smartphones, power banks, and external hard drives will usually feature either the smaller USB Type B connectors or micro-USB connectors to save valuable space.

The USB-A has a much larger physical connector than the Type C, Type C is around the same size as a micro-USB connector. Unlike, Type A, you won’t need to try and insert it, flip it over and then flip it over once more just to find the right orientation when trying to make a connection. The beauty of Type C is that it can be inserted any way up as the connector pins are the same on either side. (Source:www.rs-online.com)


It’s safe to say that the days of devices having a large number of different connector ports are long gone. USB-C ports can support a variety of different protocols using “alternate modes,” which allows you to have adapters that can output other types of connections from the USB port. Now, HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA, headphone and power ports can be streamlined into a single type of port, helping devices to become slimmer than ever before.

Even though you can’t physically connect a USB-C connector to a Type-A port, you can use a physical adaptor to plug older devices into a USB-C port. However, the underlying standard is backwards-compatible, meaning a USB 3.0 standard connector can be used with a USB 2.0 port, although it will only work at the speed and capability of the older standard, in this case, the USB 2.0 standard.(Source:www.digitaltrends.com)
