USB-C Failing To Impress Notebook PC Vendors

If you’re in the market for a new notebook with USB-C ports, you may have to look harder. Most vendors aren’t in a rush to adopt the new design, which is easier to connect and delivers more power. The primary reason, of course, is that vendors would have to spend more money to implement it.

آ…USB Type-C interface has two issues that have been stopping it to become a mainstream technology in the notebook market. First is that the interface features electric current that is larger than one of the previous-generation interfaces, and could lead to interference and heat dissipation problems when adopting too many at once. Second is that the USB Type-C features a high-speed transmission, but in order to achieve its maximum speed, it requires an amplifier chip, a receiver chip and a special-spec transmission wire, which significantly raise product costs.
