“When we opened USB Type-C to the market, we designed to assure that USB Type-C wires and connectors approved for SuperSpeed USB or SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps would as provided, support higher production USB as newer productions of USB 3.0 was developed,” said Brad Saunders, USB 3.0 Promoter Association Chairman. “The USB 3.2 update gives the next level of performance.”
Along with two-lane performance, USB 3.2 remains to use SuperSpeed USB cover data rates and encoding systems and will include a minor update to hub specs for seamless transitions between single and two-lane performance.
