In the fast-moving markets of wearables, tablets, and smartphones, system designers are under constant pressure to deliver the right functionality, at the right time – within ever tighter space, power and cost restraints. And sometimes a simple new development comes along that lets designers breathe easier. With benefits in abundance, the USB Type-C connector is poised to dramatically change the way we connect our portable and smart devices. No more frustration from incorrectly guessing which way to plug the connector in. The fully reversible plug orientation and cable direction makes Type-C a far more convenient interface solution for consumers.
