USB Type-C supports various Alternate Modes as well, allowing for a video signal and power delivery over one simple cable. At the same time, in both directions. No wonder the media describes this as ‘the one cable to rule them all’.
This is great news since most of the sleek Ultrabooks and Hybrids launching this year offer fewer outputs than ever before. Many feature only some USB Type-C outputs and maybe a traditional Type-A output.
For these devices which lack sufficient outputs for the power user, Club 3D launches three new USB 3.0 Type-C Mini Docking Stations. These are Multi Port Adapters which use DisplayPort Alternate Mode to enable video through an HDMI 2.0 or VGA output as well as a traditional USB Type-A output for data and a USB Type-C PD input for fast charging your device. There’s a version with an RJ45 Ethernet port too, for a fast and reliable wired network connection. They are like Swiss Army knives adding functionality to your new USB Type-C enabled Windows device or Mac!
