Groundbreaking for Type-C Connectors
On August 1, 2015, Techcore launched the world's first mobile solid state drive with Type-C interface. Supporting double-sided USB interface insertion, Tekexin mobile solid-state drives are also divided into two types: flagship and standard. The standard-level products are aimed at mainstream mass users, but the actual transmission speed is also amazingly fast.

What is a Type-C connector?

Type-C is an industry standard connector, also known as USB-C, for transferring data and power over a single cable. The USB-C connector was developed by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF), an organization that has developed, certified, and bootstrapped the USB standard over the years. The USB-IF members are more than 700 companies, including Apple, Dell, HP, Intel, Microsoft and Samsung.

What are the main functions and features?
Other properties of the Type-C connector are as follows: Sound when inserted correctly. Through USB Power Delivery technology, it can be used to charge 3C products (such as laptops, smartphones). Improved electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI mitigation) features. Optional integrated DisplayPort, HDMI, MHL, optional integrated Thunderbolt, and optional integrated USB4.


1. Fast
The maximum data transfer speed reaches 10GBit/s, and the output voltage is 20 volts, while the ordinary one is only 5 volts, which is more dominant in data transmission and charging.
 2. Multiple functions
Computers can charge each other, and the direction of current can be freely changed, not just one-way transmission. A Type-c data cable passes through all electronic devices, monitors, laptops, Switch, PS4, etc., device interaction is simpler.
3. Type-c interface has strong scalability
Compared with the traditional data line, the function is very limited. Type-C not only charges, but also transmits data. It also has the function of audio and video transmission. It can transmit audio and video signals and expand to a variety of audio and video output interfaces, such as HDMI, VGA, The DVI interface can even achieve extended transmission up to 4K resolution.
4. PD charging fast
It can provide a power output of up to 100W. At present, the charging interface of many mobile phone devices on the market is type-c. The type-c interface has become the mainstream, and it can realize the fast charging function, which greatly shortens the charging time and is convenient for everyone to use. .
