Originally introduced on computer platforms to facilitate data transfers, USB connectivity slowly moved from a data-transfer to a device-charging standard with the wide adoption of micro-B ports on smartphones and nearly every other mobile device. Now a part of everyday life, the standard is again quickly evolving with the introduction of a new smart Type-C connector. Able to deliver 100 W of power with a 10 Gbit/s data transfer rate, the Type-C connector also has the unique skills for switching to alternate or custom communication standards. Making the best use of these new features will open the door to new applications especially in the mobile, wearable, accessories and IoT arena…
