Developed at roughly the same time as but distinct from the USB 3.1 specification, the USB Type-C Specification 1.0 defines a new small reversible-plug connector for USB devices.
The type-C plug connects to both hosts and devices, replacing various type-B and type-A connectors and cables with a standard meant to be future-proof, similar toApple Lightning and Thunderbolt.
The 24-pin double-sided connector provides four power/ground pairs, two differential pairs for USB 2.0 data bus (though only one pair is implemented in a type-C cable), four pairs for high-speed data bus, two "sideband use" pins, and two configuration pins for cable orientation detection, dedicated biphase mark code (BMC) configuration data channel, and VCONN +5 V power for active cables.
Type-A and type-B adaptors/cables will be required for older devices in order to plug into type-C hosts; adaptors/cables with a type-C receptacle are not allowed.
