Type C or Not to Type C

Tackling the Challenges of the Next Generation of USB

Toto, I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore.
— Dorothy, The Wizard of Oz.

This week’s episode of Fish Fry starts off with a bang — the Big Bang! We investigate a new study from a multi-national team of researchers that investigates the cosmic microwave background of the universe. This research team claims that hidden in this cosmic white noise is “substanial proof” that we live in a holographic universe. Next, we dive into the world of USB Type C with Total Phase CEO Gil Ben-Dov. Gil and I discuss the testing and debug challenges of this upstart USB technology and why Type C cabling is much more complicated than previous versions.
