C2G rounds out USB product offering with USB-C cables and adapters
C2G says it now provides a complete USB cable, adapter, and extender portfolio to support oldest to newest USB to USB-C devices.
C2G recently launched a line of USB-C cables and adapters that the company says “round out their complete USB product offering. These new USB-C cables and adapters, along with C2G’s existing offering of USB cables, adapters, and extenders, allow options for connecting a USB device to almost any other device and for USB connection extensions to over 300 feet.”
Gary Hess, C2G vice president of innovation, commented, “The USB-C cables and adapters allow us to bring solutions to problems faced by our customers. These products will help customers extend the life of existing devices by adapting them to connect to a USB-C port, but as the technology develops and we see USB-C ports appear on more devices—like the Chromebook Pixel and MacBook—C2G will bring innovative solutions to support this evolving technology.”
The company explains this initial offering of USB-C cables and adapters feature USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, or USB 3.1 Gen 1-compatible products, “which connect from the USB-C port to devices such as flash drives, printers, smartphones, tablets, digital cameras, and many other types of USB devices.
“These products will be quickly followed by USB-C adapters, which allow for an A/V connection from a USB-C port to a DisplayPort, HDMI or VGA connector, an HDTV projector, a wired network connection for Internet access, and even a USB hub, which features a USB-C port.”
C2G has produced a number of educational materials on USB 3.1, which can be found on this portion of the company’s website.
