New Reversible USB 3.1 Type-C connector

Reversible USB Type-C Connector speed upto 10 gigabit USB 3.1 cable.
The USB Type-C specification establishes a new cable and connector method modified to fit mobile device product designs that is reversible with identical ends, yet healthy enough for laptops and tablets. With this release, the specification has been transferred to the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) for ongoing management and the establishment of a compliance and certification program. In this cable connector, there is no small end for the phone and big one for the PC as in the case with Micro USB.

USB 3.1 is set to be used in two different standards the USB Type-A connector that we are all familiar with (and get frustrated when it never goes in first time) and the Type-C reversible connector that is being pushed and marketed as the next USB connector standard. However, you need to know the difference between USB Type-A and Type-B, and tell between the various versions of the USB standard. Generally, version refers to the speed and functionality of the USB cable, while the USB Type refers to the physical shape and the wiring of the ports and plugs.

Type-C connector works with the USB 3.1 standard, operates at up to 10 Gbps (USB 3.1) and USB Power Delivery up to 100W. The connector is twice the speed of the USB 3.0 standard that is supported current USB connectors.

Different types of USB versions:
USB 1.1

USB 1.1: Released in August 1998, this is the first USB version to be widely adopted (the original version 1.0 never made it into consumer products). It has a top speed of 12Mbps (though in many cases only performs at 1.2Mbps). It's largely obsolete.
USB 2.0

USB 2.0: Released in April 2000, it has a max speed of 480Mbps in Hi-Speed mode, or 12Mbps in Full-Speed mode. It currently has the max power out put of 2.5V, 1.8A and is backward-compatible with USB 1.1.

USB 3.0
USB 3.0: Released in November 2008, USB 3.0 has the top speed of 5Gbps in Super Speed mode. A USB 3.0 port (and connector) is usually colored blue. USB 3.0 is backward-compatible with USB 2.0 but its port can deliver up to 5V, 1.8A of power.
USB 3.1

USB 3.1: Released in July 26, 2013, USB 3.1 doubles the speed of USB 3.0 to 10Gbps (now called Super Speed + or Super Speed USB 10 Gbps), making it as fast as the original Thunderbolt standard. USB 3.1 is backward-compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0. USB 3.1 has three power profiles (according to USB Power Delivery Specification), and allows larger devices to draw power from a host: up to 2A at 5V (for a power consumption of up to 10W), and optionally up to 5A at either 12V (60W) or 20V (100W). The first USB 3.1 products are expected to be available next year, and will mostly use USB Type-C design.

USB Type-C can also carry much higher power than USB 3.0 and going forward there will be many mobile devices, even laptops, that can be powered via the USB cable instead of using a separate power adapter. It can be used to charge even a laptop as it uses up to 100 watts of power. 

Key features of USB Type-C connector:
• Entirely new design
• Tailored for emerging product designs
• Robust enough for laptops and tablets; slim enough for mobile phones
• Similar to size of USB 2.0 Micro-B

Usability enhancements:
• Reversible plug orientation and cable direction
• Supports scalable power charging
• Future scalability
• Designed to support future USB performance needs

Mechanical specs:
• Receptacle opening: ~8.4mm x ~2.6mm
• Durability: 10,000 cycles
• Improved EMI- and RFI-mitigation features
• Power delivery capacity: 3A for standard cables and 5A for connectors
