BizLink Announces New USB Type-C Bi-Directional Active Cable

BizLink, a global leader in interconnect solutions, is proud to announce the release of its revolutionary USB Type-C Bi-directional Active Cable, which can automatically detect the configuration of the USB connection between a host and a device. The cable can also automatically switch its signal direction and DisplayPort Alternative (DP ALT) modes. This significantly improves ease of use for a wide range of interconnect applications. Unlike the one-way USB Type-C active cable, this longer bi-directional active cable can be used just like a passive cable.

BizLink always continues to innovate in cable technology, delivering high-quality cables and improving ease of use. The USB Type-C Bi-directional Active Cable conquers the limitation of the one-way USB Type-C active cable. It can automatically detect signal direction and configurations through a MCU on the CC wire and control the direction of the Equalizer IC via I2C. The following are the DP ALT modes that the USB Type-C Bi-directional Active Cable supports:
  • Two channels of USB 3.2 Gen 2
  • One channel of USB 3.2 Gen 2 and two lanes of DP 1.4 HBR 3
  • Four lanes of DP 1.4 HBR 3

The power consumption of this cable meets the VCONN requirement of USB-IF, although the outer diameter of this bi-directional active cable remains the same as that of the normal USB Type-C passive cable. Additionally, the cable supports power delivery of up to 100 watts and the cable length can be more than 2 meters. It allows for more operational efficiency and significantly improves ease of use for a wide range of interconnect applications such as conference call, VR/AR entertainment, and home theater.

BizLink is a highly vertically integrated company that produces all the essential components of the bi-directional active cable in house, such as connectors, paddle cards, wires, cables, and firmware. The plugs connecting on the bi-directional active cable, designed with an optimized structure, looks just like most passive cables’ plugs. BizLink has conducted many internal compatibility tests to ensure the functionality of the cable. The USB Type-C Bi-directional Active Cable meets industrial standards and is compatible with all the major platforms, including iOS and Windows.
