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 …

Mushkin Showcases New Reactor Solid-State Drives

Mushkin Enhanced is about to launch a new series of top-tier SSDs within the framework of Reactor series. The series, represented by three models of 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB capacity, is targeting up-to-date gaming and high-performance systems. The greenhorns are developed in 2.5-inch form-factor with 7 mm thickness only and SATA III 6 Gb/sec interface.



Mushkin Reactor drives take Silicon Motion SM2246EN controller in cooperation with MLC NAND flash-memory as the basis. Their utmost sequential data transfer speed equals to 560 Mb/sec and 460 Mb/sec on Read/Write operations respectively, while random data transfer speed achieves 74.000 IOPS and 76.000 IOPS correspondingly.


The triple is thought to operate 1.5 million hours without failures in rather tough conditions (in working environments with up to 70 degrees temperature). All models support TRIM instructions, DevSleep mode that prolongs standalone operation of a mobile device on battery power supply, and the newest …

Prime cost for Google Nexus 7 is supposed to be $ 151.75

Issuing of 7 Nexus is a major project for Google Company. It is aimed primarily at promoting

the Tablet PC and Android OS, and not on the extraction of direct financial benefits. This is

an investment in technology and in the future. According to preliminary data the prime cost of

Nexus 7 was about $184 in U.S. for an 8-gigabyte version at a retail price is about $ 200. And

this is without taking into account the costs of marketing and development.



But now a study is conducted by experts, they estimated the cost of an 8-gigabyte version of

the Nexus 7 to be $ 151.75. A 16-gigabyte model is estimated by experts at $ 159.25 prise,

the difference is the memory module. Thus, the younger version of the Tablet PC is almost

unprofitable for Google and its partner ASUS, small financial benefit has only a model with 16

GB of storage, its recommended retail price is $ 249.99.


A detailed list of prices for components of Nexus 7 is not listed. Still some prises are …
