Lots of great new stuff being built. All with USB and USB Type-C.
Relationships Between USB Specs, Part Two & Where to Learn more about Type-C and DisplayPort alt mode
Recently I blogged on the relationships between USB Type-C, USB 3.1, Power Delivery and DisplayPort specifications. In my last blog I simplified the view focusing on the important and latest specifications. I think the simplified view answer most designer’s questions but there are still a few that like to see the full history and complex interactions. The below image, click to enlarge, provides a more detailed view of the different specifications, timeline representation and relationships.

Now that you are back from the Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder’s meeting in Omaha, filled with Gorat’s Steakhouse steak and Dairy Queen goodness, your thoughts naturally turn to USB 3.0 and ask: Where can I find USB 3.o in WiFi? After you read about wireless drives in last week’s entry, you need a fast router that is also WiFi-AC to connect quickly to other “stuff” on your network.
