Next gen reversible USB system released

Almost two years after Apple released its proprietary reversible Lightning data transfer bus and power cable, the USB 3.0 Promoter Group, has revealed the details of its own new reversible high-speed cable and connector system.

The group today released its new USB Type-C specification, defining the next generation of USB connector for implementers and developers.

It said that the new configuration establishes a cable and connector system tailored for the sleek profiles of mobile device designs, yet remaining robust enough for laptops.

With the openings for the new connector measuring 8.4mm by 2.6mm, it is not far from the size of the current micro USB 2.0 Type-B connectors which are found on most non-Apple smartphones.

The new cable and connector supports USB 3.1 "SuperSpeed" 10 Gbps data transference and USB power delivery of up to 100 watts, according to the group, which is comprised of HP, Intel, Microsoft, Renesas Electronics, STMicroelectronics, and Texas Instruments.
