USB Power Delivery Spec Finalized
Author: Cássio LimaDate: July 19, 2012 - 7:48 AM PST

More Info: http://www.usb.org/developers/docs/

The USB 3.0 Promoter Group, in conjunction with the USB 2.0 Promoter Group, has just announced the completion of the USB power delivery specification, which enables increased power delivery through USB cables and connectors. The specification expands cable bus power capabilities in USB applications, supplying higher voltage and current to deliver power up to 100 watts over USB certified cables. It is capable of delivering higher power to charge notebooks and external hard disk drives.

“USB Power Delivery enables a path to greatly reduce electronic waste by eliminating proprietary, platform-specific chargers,” said Brad Saunders, USB 3.0 Promoter Group Chairman. “We envision a significant move toward universal charging based on this specification, most notably for charging notebook PCs using standardized USB power bricks or when connected to USB hubs and desktop displays that integrate USB Power Delivery capabilities.”
