CEA Aims for Common Portable Device Connector
Trying to make docking connectors more compatible, the CEA's Technology and Standards Mobile Electronics Committee has formed a new working group.

Its aim is to develop an electrical and mechanical spec for a standard docking connector for portable devices that need to be cradled and controlled in vehicles and homes.

"The portable device industry has thus far invented a variety of proprietary docking connectors that are not generally interoperable," said Brian Markwalter, CEA vice president, Technology and Standards.

The new group "will create an industry-standard docking connector specification that could be adopted by any host or portable device manufacturer regardless of the format or protocol that it supports."
