e., the current used to charge decoupling and filter capacitors) when the device is first connected. USB devices have some choice of implemented modes, and USB version is not a reliable statement of implemented modes.
While newer USB standards have gained popularity, mini USB cables continue to be used for specific devices like older sat nav systems and radio scanners. On the device side, a modified Micro-B plug (Micro-B SuperSpeed) is used to cater for the five additional pins required to achieve the USB 3.
The USB standard specifies tolerances for compliant USB connectors to minimize physical incompatibilities in connectors from different vendors.There are several minimum allowable voltages defined at different locations within a chain of connectors, hubs, and cables between an upstream host (providing the power) and a downstream device (consuming the power). Prior to the USB Battery Charging Specification, the USB specification required that devices connect in a low-power mode (100mA maximum) and communicate their current requirements to the host, which then permits the device to switch into high-power mode. The USB-C plug connects to both hosts and devices, replacing various Type-A and Type-B connectors and cables with a standard meant to be future-proof.
The USB specification requires that the cable plug and receptacle be marked so the user can recognize the proper orientation. The Micro connector is also designed to reduce the mechanical wear on the device; instead, the easier-to-replace cable is designed to bear the mechanical wear of connection and disconnection.pdf/ for an entire breakdown (simple to read) on the cable connector setup, as presented by the USB Implementers Forum. Proprietary, hazardous Existing for specific proprietary purposes, not inter-operable with USB-IF compliant equipment and possibly damaging to both devices when plugged in.
