The difference between USB3.0 and USB3.1 cables

Shenzhen STC Cable Manufacturer | Updated: May 04, 2016

About USB3.1 is now the focus of discussion, USB3.1 is the latest USB specification, which was initiated by Intel and other large companies. Faster data transfer speeds up to 10Gbps. Compared with USB 3.0 technology, the new USB technology uses a more efficient data encoding system, and provides more than twice the effective data throughput. It is fully backward compatible with existing USB connectors and cables. , USB3.1 and relevant products have gradually into the people's attention, in particular, where the traditional host-side devices that provide expansion interface board is most active. While the next generation of Intel 100 series chipset still does not provide native support USB3.1, USB3.0 but like before, like before yet native programs are based on the integration of third-party control chip to provide a new interface .

USB3.1 and USB3.0 mention improved compared to what
USB3.1 standard released in July 2013, the maximum theoretical bandwidth when compared to USB3.0 doubled to 10Gb / s (Super Speed +). USB3.1 USB3.0 from the previous encoding the 8b / 10b replaced 128b / 132b, bandwidth consumption rate dropped from 20% to around 3% in terms of bandwidth, the same after more than 1.2GB / s, it also means limit the use of real USB3.1 transfer rate is expected to be close to 1GB / s. USB3.1 what can much faster than USB3.0

USB3.1 what can much faster than USB3.0

Although  the upgrade as in the past, like, USB3.1 also brings a higher  transmission rate, and fix the various aspects of pre-existing, but more  people are talking about with the introduction of new Type- C USB3.1  interface. Similar to Apple's Lightning Interface, Type-C interface to cancel the  former foolproof protection design, it can be both positive and  negative, regardless of the use of proper insertion, eliminating the  need to identify the direction of insertion trouble.

Another big selling point USB3.1 Type-C is a mobile device charging capability enhancement. Powered  USB 3.1 interface for maximum allowable standards greatly improved to  20V / 5A (only Type-A / B), can provide up to 100W of power output  capacity. The highest standard Type-C is 12V / 3A, 36W charging capacity is  sufficient to use some of the thin and light notebook, which is also  dare to give up the New MacBook MagSafe and the use of Type-C as the  charging interface of the important reasons.

Functional  USB 3.1 Type-C also introduces a new Alternate Mode (alternating mode),  which means that Type-C interface and data lines can be transmitted  non-USB data signals. Currently Alt Mode has been able to support DisplayPort 1.3 and MHL  3.2 specification, USB-IF at the same time is also seeking support for  other standard features, in addition to video interface, also can be  Type-C and other support such as Ethernet interfaces.

USB3.1 and USB3.0 transmission speed comparison

Although  currently still no native USB3.1 support, but compared to the native  USB3.0, USB3.1 solutions to third highest access speed up or native USB  3.0 can reach more than 60%, the overall performance is not so us down.

In the end how fast USB USB3.1 for your Secret Society

Appears  USB3.1 Type-C interface for mobile devices will play a very important  role, for now, USB3.1 the Type-C is most likely to become a future  connection standards provide data transmission, peripherals , integrated display output and other connectivity solutions. It is reported that in 2017 the EU will force all mobile devices unified USB3.1 interface. USB3.1  In addition to PCs, mobile phones, tablet next year will be full speed  in popularity, while the technology also has been Intel, Google,  Microsoft and Apple support. USB  .1 and Type-C interfaces, after all, a big trend, motherboard  manufacturers start now to layout USB 3.1, expected by the host side  products led other USB 3.1 external devices to enter the market,  promoting the popularization of considerable significance to USB 3.1's.
