The new USB4 - Thunderbolt™ features in the USB standard

USB 4.0 (or USB4) represents the latest development stage of the USB interface standard. It is a high-speed interface for a variety of peripheral devices. USB4 uses USB C type connectors. This connector has 24 pins and can use all available lines. The interface is downward compatible, two separate lines enable the transmission of USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 signals.

USB 4.0 was developed on the basis of Thunderbolt™ 3. Thanks to the Thunderbolt™ protocol, USB4 is faster than ever before. Compared to the still widely used USB 3.1 (10 Gbit/s), the transfer speed with USB4 is now four times faster. In addition, USB takes over some of the capabilities and properties of Thunderbolt™, including the possibility of combining numerous other interfaces and protocols. For example: PCI Express, DisplayPort and host-to-host transfers can be tunnelled.

Some advantages:

  • Twice as fast as its predecessor USB 3.2.
  • USB4 supports various data and display protocols, so USB4 covers a wider range of applications.
  • USB4 devices can use the new USB Power Delivery technology, which makes charging much faster.
  • For USB4, you do not need a cable on your device, but only the USB-C connector.
