There are a variety of data cables on the market today, mainly because of the diversity of interfaces. Imagine having a USB interface that is exactly the same on the top and bottom, no longer distinguishing between the front and back, and both directions can be inserted.
It also doubles the transmission bandwidth from 5 Gbps to 10 Gbps, and at the same time significantly increases the supply current from 1.5 A to 3-5 A. It not only performs faster but also charges much faster. The most critical point is that any USB interface device can be connected. This is USB 3.1 Type-C.
Many users may find that this Type-C Usb Cable interface is also applied to the motherboard of the computer. So what exactly is this Type-C?

Type-C full name of USB Type-C interface, is a new form of USB interface, it was born accompanied by the USB3.1 standard.
In the final analysis, it is a USB interface, which solves the most troubling world-wide problem since the appearance of the USB interface, that is, it "no longer distinguishes between directions, and it can be inserted both positive and negative." The emergence of the Type-C interface can be said to save OCD and Virgo.

Although everyone knows what kind of functions the Type-C interface can achieve and what it is, it may be that many people will have a question: "Why is it called Type-C?A and B?" .
The original Type-A interface is the most commonly used standard USB interface! Indeed, the English name of the Type-A interface is "Standard Type-A USB," which means that it is a standard USB interface, and other forms of USB interface are its derivatives.
For the Type-B USB interface, although its appearance rate is far less than the standard Type-A interface, it is surely not unfamiliar to us, because many external USB devices such as printers, monitors, USB HUB, etc. use Type-B USB. interface.
In general, the USB interface on the PC is a standard Type-A, and external devices use Type-B.
Finally, the new Type-C interface has emerged. It has much smaller size than Type-A and Type-B, and its size can even be comparable with Mini-USB and Micro-USB, and is the latest USB interface form factor.
In addition, Type-C is an interface type that can be applied to both PCs (master devices) and external devices (slave devices). This is epoch-making.
So what is the connection between USB3.1 interface and Type-C?

In the industry, the USB 3.0 interface is made blue to distinguish it from the black of the USB 2.0 interface. Currently distinguished from USB 3.0 (blue). Although the USB Society does not specify the colors of USB3.1, it will be inevitable to distinguish them by color.
The Type-C interface is introduced at the same time as the USB 3.1 standard. The Type-C specification is also based on the USB 3.1 specification. Therefore, the USB 3.1 can be manufactured as a Type-C type, but the Type-C USB3.1
