Integral Memory has announced the launch of its first flash drive featuring a USB Type-C™ connector which is the answer to an increasingly mobile world.
The Fusion USB Type-C Flash Drive provides an instant data storage device with ultimate compatibility between smartphones, tablets, PCs and Macs. In future the Type-C connector will simplify all formats into one universal interface that will carry both data and power between devices at higher speeds.
"The Fusion USB Type-C is the first generation of a new age of connectivity that answers the demands of a multi-device world. It is well-timed to answer the demands of a data hungry age, where higher resolution media and more complex apps demand increased speed and compatibility between the workplace and the home," commented Francesco Rivieccio, Senior Product Manager at Integral Memory plc.
The new flash drive range features a ‘USB Type-C' connector; the first reversible USB interface for a ‘no wrong way round' fit, when attaching to a device. It is an attribute that has already won the approval of many users. The Fusion USB Type-C also offers a handy dual interface; USB Type-A connector for all current 2.0 and 3.0 ports found in millions of devices, alongside the new future-proof USB Type-C connector, allowing for a seamless transition between existing and future hardware.
The Integral Fusion USB Type-C range provides data storage of up to 64GB, delivered in a compact, low-profile, zinc alloy casing.
Integral's first USB Type-C drive will support USB 3.1 Gen 1 5Gbit/sec bus speeds, followed in the future by USB 3.1 Gen 2 bus speeds of 10Gbit/sec.
The Fusion Type-C range is available Q3 2015 and prices are anticipated to be comparable to current USB flash drives.
