USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) announced it will host two USB Developer Days, the first in San Diego, October 20-21 and the second in Taipei, Taiwan, November 17-18. The DevDays technical tracks will include USB Type-C™, SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps, USB Power Delivery and standardized USB Type-C™ Alternate Modes, among other topics. Guest speakers will present case studies on product implementations and attendees will have the opportunity to network with exhibitors as well as USB experts.
“The next generation of USB has already started to influence the form factor, performance and power capability of consumer electronics and we expect to see adoption in a range of industries including enterprise, automotive, IoT and beyond,” said Jeff Ravencraft, USB-IF President and COO. “Companies started announcing products mere months after the USB Type-C specification was finalized. The market is moving fast and the most effective way to shorten time-to-market without cutting corners is to attend the USB DevDays.”
“We’ve planned these DevDays to offer more than just information about the specifications,” said Brad Saunders, USB-IF Chairman. “Guest speakers will present use cases and key learnings to show attendees step-by-step how their companies implemented these USB technologies. Companies need to realize these new specs are not your ordinary USB and if they want to successfully implement these new USB technologies they need to send their lead design members to this event.”
