It also enables fully reversible plug orientation and cable direction, making USB Type-C far more convenient for consumers and helping deliver a true Plug-and-Play experience.
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 make Type-C a far more convenient interface solution for consumers.
