USB Type C for You and Me

Standards, Challenges, and Dynamics of USB Type C

It slices, it dices, it juliennes, and it doesn’t care which way you plug it in – it’s USB type C. Coming soon to a consumer electronic design near you, this new interface is bound to take the electronics world by storm. Well, that might be overstating things a bit. USB type C may not be the electronics equivalent of sliced bread, and it may not revolutionize the world of CE, but it will be pretty darn cool to start using in our designs (and our everyday lives). This week we’re taking a closer look at the design challenges surrounding USB type C and how you can get it up and running in your next design. My guest is Gervais Fong and we’re discussing all of this… and the wonder of BBQ too.
