The difference between Type-C and USB-C

  Type-C is an interface specification that adopts a symmetrical plug and socket design and has reversible plug-in characteristics. This interface technology was originally developed by the USB Implementers Forum as the standard interface for USB 3.1.
  USB-C is the physical interface of the USB protocol. It adopts the physical structure of Type-C, supports forward and reverse plug-in functions, and has a high transmission rate.
  The difference between Type-C and USB-C
  Design and shape: Type-C and USB-C are basically the same in design and shape. They both adopt symmetrical plug and socket designs and support forward and reverse plugging and unplugging. However, they differ in physical specifications, such as plug and socket size, spacing, etc.
  Transfer rate: Although USB-C is based on the USB 3.1 protocol and supports reversible plugging and unplugging functions, its transfer rate does not reach the expected 10 Gbps. Most USB-C devices currently on the market use USB 3.0 or USB 3.1 Gen 1 specifications, with a transmission rate of only 5 Gbps.
  Function: Although both Type-C and USB-C support reversible plugging and unplugging functions, Type-C also has more functions. For example, Type-C supports multiple data transmission protocols, such as USB 3.1, DisplayPort, Thunderbolt, etc., while USB-C is mainly based on the USB 3.1 protocol. In addition, Type-C also supports analog audio signal transmission and power supply functions, while USB-C only supports power supply functions.
  Compatibility: Due to the differences in design and functionality between Type-C and USB-C, there are also certain differences in compatibility. For example, not all devices that support Type-C support USB-C, and vice versa. Therefore, users need to pay attention to the compatibility of interface types when selecting equipment.
  USB-C is a physical interface of the USB protocol, while Type-C is the USB 3.1 standard interface developed by the USB Implementers Forum. Therefore, USB-C implementation and applications are often associated with Type-C.
