The evolution of USB connectivity has been remarkable over the past few years. From USB Type-A to Type-B, and now to Type-C, the technology has grown to offer faster speeds, higher power delivery, and more versatility. The latest innovation in USB Type-C technology is the USB Type-C 4.0 by Smartavlink. In this article, we’ll explore what makes this technology unique and how it can benefit you.


What is USB Type-C 4.0?

USB Type-C 4.0 is the latest iteration of USB Type-C technology. It was introduced by Smartavlink and offers faster speeds, more power delivery, and improved compatibility. The USB Type-C 4.0 can support data transfer rates of up to 40Gbps, which is twice the speed of the previous USB 3.2 Gen 2×2. Additionally, the technology can support up to 100W power delivery, which is enough to charge laptops and other high-power devices.


Benefits of USB Type-C 4.0

Smartavlink, a leading manufacturer of USB Type-C cables and adapters, has announced their latest products that support the new USB Type-C 4.0 standard. Let’s take a closer look at what this new standard means for users.

  • Faster Transfer Speeds

One of the most significant improvements of USB Type-C 4.0 is the increased transfer speeds. It’s capable of transferring data at speeds of up to 40Gbps, which is twice the speed of the previous version, USB 3.2. This means that transferring large files, such as 4K videos and high-resolution images, will be faster than ever before.

  • Better Power Delivery

Another improvement of USB Type-C 4.0 is the enhanced power delivery capabilities. With the new standard, it’s possible to deliver up to 100W of power, which is more than enough to charge laptops, tablets, and other power-hungry devices. Additionally, the new standard supports up to 240W charging for larger devices.

  • Improved Audio and Video

USB Type-C 4.0 also brings improvements to audio and video capabilities. The new standard supports DisplayPort 2.0, which means that it can handle 8K displays with a refresh rate of up to 60Hz. It also supports High Bit Rate 3 (HBR3), which enables support for HDR video at 10K resolution.

  • Backward Compatibility

Despite the new features and improvements, USB Type-C 4.0 remains backward compatible with older USB standards. This means that users can still use their existing USB Type-C devices with the new standard, although they won’t be able to take advantage of the new features.

  • Compatibility with Thunderbolt 4

Another significant advantage of USB Type-C 4.0 is its compatibility with Thunderbolt 4. Thunderbolt 4 is a new standard developed by Intel that supports transfer speeds of up to 40Gbps and delivers up to 100W of power. Thunderbolt 4 also supports DisplayPort 2.0 and PCIe 4.0, which allows for faster data transfer with compatible devices.
