How do I connect my DisplayLink enabled product to a USB C port?

If your PC, tablet, Mac or phone has a USB C port, this can still be used to connect to a DisplayLink enabled docking station, adapter or monitor.

A USB C port looks like this:

Many newer docking stations with DisplayLink are USB-C, which means you can use a USB-C cable to directly connect the dock to the computer. However a USB 3.x or USB 2.0 dock can still be connected to a USB C computer. DisplayLink recommends a USB C to USB A female converter to connect USB Standard A/B devices. A USB C to USB A (female) converter looks like this:

Your existing USB Standard A to B cable can then be used to connect your existing DisplayLink enabled device.

The USB C to A (female) adapters are available from a number of outlets, including Amazon.
