Plugable USB-C to VGA Adapter Cable

The Plugable USB-C to VGA Adapter Cable enables older VGA displays to be connected to a computer via a USB-C port or Thunderbolt 3 port which supports "VESA DisplayPort Alternate Mode over USB-C" ("Alt Mode"). DisplayPort signaling is converted to VGA by a chip in the adapter cable.

6 foot/1.8m cable is a seamless, single-cable solution for connecting from your Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C system to your VGA display, allowing for tidy installation and cable management without the need for additional dongles and VGA extension cables.

Supports resolutions up to 1920x1080 (1080p) at 60Hz on VGA-equipped monitors, TVs or projectors.

Uncompromising Performance

Alt Mode adapters allow you to add an additional display output easily and inexpensively on supported systems. Since DisplayPort Alternate Mode is a direct pipeline to the host graphics processor (GPU) in your system, the connected display will function with the same uncompromising performance of a natively attached display.

Video and photo editing, gaming, and other resource-intensive tasks are possible assuming that the system's GPU capabilities are sufficient for the application being used.

Compatibility

Compatible Systems

Plug and Play installation on any Windows, Mac, or Linux host which supports DisplayPort Alternate Mode (Alt Mode) video output functionality.

Adapter has been fully tested for functionality on the 2018 iPad Pro (mirroring only), 2018 MacBook Air, 2017 iMac/iMac Pro, 2017 & 2018 MacBook/MacBook Pro, MacBook Retina 12" 2016 / 2017, Google Pixelbook, Chromebook Pixel 2015, Dell XPS 13 9360 / 9370 & XPS 15 9560 / 9570, Lenovo P50, and Samsung Galaxy S8 / S8+.

Late 2016 MacBook Pro systems with Thunderbolt 3 can support multiple displays via Alt Mode adapters. (Up to 2 external displays on MBP with Intel graphics, and 4 external displays on MBP with AMD graphics.)

Incompatible Systems

Most current phones and tablets with USB-C ports do not support Alt Mode video output.

ASMedia USB 3.1 controllers do not support Alt Mode video at this time.

Audio is not supported over VGA connectors

Most motherboards with dual USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports are limited to a single Alt Mode output, and typically only support 1 USB-C Alt Mode adapter per system.
