Welcome to what I call the second Wednesday of this week, or what you would call Thursday. Here’s a blog on USB Audio Device Class 3.0
So much buzz from CES 2017 this year with the big hitters (IMO) being autonomous cars, IoT devices for the home, specifically security, wearables, virtual reality (VR), 8K TV’s and of course USB everything. Within the space of USB, Type-C was the main theme with cables, chargers, hubs and more abundant from a varied number of vendors.
This blog has little to do USB, but it’s the holiday season so maybe we all needed a break from high tech.
We have been seeing a lot of interest in all things USB Type-C from basic USB 2.0 Type-C support all the way to the higher end USB Type-C Alt Mode with DisplayPort. Actually, the latter is getting the most focus as it’s far more complex than traditional standalone USB operation and it’s a highly desirable use mode. Many of the questions are asking for our recommendation as to how to handle the high power, high voltage power delivery and Type-C Port Controller hardware. This is a complex HW partitioning, SW partitioning and system architecture question.
Last week I blogged about how USB Type-C would replace the 3.5mm audio jack in the future. I asked the readers to comment on what they thought about this. Below is one of the comments I didn’t approve
This week VESA announced the availability of the Early Certification Program for USB Type-C Devices Using DisplayPort Alt Mode.
