Future Trends

USB Type-C, the latest revision of the popular standard, is becoming the standard for high-speed data communication in consumer devices such as laptops and smartphones. Taking advantage of USB’s Alternate Mode capability, HDMI is the latest high-speed data standard to issue a specification defining its use in a USB Type-C environment. Designers can expect to see other popular video standards join DisplayPort, Thunderbolt, MHL, and HDMI, in jumping on the Alternate Mode bandwagon.

Since HDMI is such a popular standard, expect to see HDMI-specific Alternate Mode chipsets make their appearance soon.
