We cope with USB Power Delivery standard! Merit and precaution of USB Type-C
In "USB Type-C" which was the latest USB standard, it became possible not to have been able to realize in past USB standard commencing with large-capacity power supply that adopted "USB Power Delivery" standard.
Here, we introduce merit and precaution of USB Type-C.
Merit of USB Type-C corresponding to USB Power Delivery standard

Power supply to large digital gadget including 1 note PC is possible
In conventional USB standard, it was able to supply only electricity of degree that could charge small digital gadget including smartphone and digital camera. However, USB Power Delivery to up to 100W as can feed, it becomes possible feeding to large apparatuses such as note PC, liquid crystal display.

We can supply with data transmission with one cable when we use USB Type-C connector, but, besides, cope with mode controlling transmission of video signal called "alternate mode".
By connecting liquid crystal display to note PC with USB Type-C cable, can perform the Video output and power supply at the same time if we use alternate mode. In other words, we can reduce one interconnection cable. In this way, by using USB Type-C, can realize simple wiring.
