Lifting the Veil from USB Type-C Bus

Since the launch in 1995, Universal Serial Bus (USB) has proved itself as the most successful ever computing interface. Nowadays tens of billions of electronic devices are connected together due to it. It goes without saying that this bus has outlived a few modifications, each distinguished by higher speed and reliability. Thus, today the community is able to revel in a completely new modification – USB Type-C – that forecasts a lot privileges of connectivity process. Let’s see what users will get with a new bus.



Layout and Connectivity


In physical terms, Type-C is a bit larger than USB 2.0 Micro-B but a bit tinier than binary USB 3.0 Micro-B, featuring 8.34x2.56 mm. Such dimensions enable its connection to the devices of any type, including the thinnest smartphones/tablets. The oval-shaped socket houses 24 contact outputs (to compare: USB 3.0 sockets feature only 9 outputs).


The most outstanding physical peculiarity of Type-C is a symmetric connector that …

Gigabyte Readies Entry-Level Graphics Card GV-N640D5-2GI

Gigabyte is going to introduce one more entry-level graphics solution that corresponds to the updated Nvidia GeForce GT 640 series. Entitled Gigabyte GeForce GT 640 (GV-N640D5-2GI), the card employs GK107 GPU, running at 1046 MHz frequency instead of the preceding 900 MHz. The core, developed under 28 technological process, utilizes 384 CUDA cores.



It’s necessary to underline that the new-comer differs by the availability of 2 GB memory, whereas all etalon models take 1 GB only. Memory is represented by 64-bit GDDR5 chips that run at 5010 MHz effective frequency, if compared with 1800 MHz frequency that DDR3 modules demonstrate.


GV-N640D5-2GI comes with an improved design of PCB where a brand Ultra Durable 2 concept has been incorporated. This concept implies the employment of a high-quality hardware base, involving durable solid-state capacitors, transistors with low channel resistance RDS (on), and ferrite throttles with reduced power loss. Traditionally, the model …
