Product ID: CDP2DPUCP
This USB-C™ to DisplayPort adapter lets you connect your laptop or MacBook with USB Type-C™ to a DisplayPort monitor. The video adapter features USB Power Delivery, which enables you to power your laptop while you're outputting video to a DisplayPort display.
USB Type-C is a universal connectivity standard that combines all of your essential functions into one dynamic port. This adapter works with USB-C devices that pass a DisplayPort video signal, such as the MacBook, Chromebook Pixel™ and the 2018 iPad Pro. It's also compatible with Thunderbolt™ 3 ports.
Unlike some video adapters that take up one of your laptop’s USB-C ports to output video, this video adapter features an additional USB-C charge port that supports USB Power Delivery up to 60 watts. This means you can charge your laptop and output video using a single port, by simply connecting the laptop’s power adapter to the adapter's USB-C port. It’s the perfect solution for laptops that have a limited number of USB-C ports.
This USB Type-C video adapter maximizes portability with a lightweight, small-footprint design. It’s the perfect accessory to carry with your MacBook or other USB-C computer, fitting easily into your laptop bag or carrying case. Its ultra-portable design makes this adapter perfect for BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) applications at the office.
This adapter lets you utilize the versatile USB Type-C port on your portable device. USB Type-C is a reversible connector, so no matter how you plug it in, the adapter will always connect. This saves you the hassle and embarrassment of struggling with your device when you're trying to deliver a presentation or sharing information.
At four times the resolution of high-definition 1080p, you’ll be amazed at the picture quality of a 4K monitor or television. The adapter lets you harness the video capabilities that are built into your USB Type-C connection to deliver the astonishing quality of Ultra HD to your 4K display. 4K resolution gives you additional screen space to simplify your approach to detailed work such as editing video and viewing large spreadsheets.
Even if you're not running 4K, the adapter supports high-definition 1080p and lower resolutions, which gives you peace of mind in knowing that this adapter will work with any DP display you need to connect to.
The CDP2DPUCP is backed by a 3-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

This device is plug and play. It does not use any drivers, and does not require any setup tasks other than plugging in the source (for example, a computer) and the destination (for example, a monitor).
When you troubleshoot issues with a video adapter, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:
Video source (such as a DVD player or computer)
Video destination (such as a monitor or projector)
To test your setup components, try the following:
Use the cable, video adapter, video source, and video destination in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.
Use a different cable, video adapter, video source, and video destination in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.
When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:
Test each cable individually.
Use short cables when you are testing.
When you test the video source and video destination, it is recommended that you do the following:
Remove the video adapter from your setup and test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together without the video adapter.
Test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together at the resolution that you want to use.
Note: In order for your setup to work properly, the video source, adapter, and destination all need to support the resolution that you are using.
To output 4K to a DisplayPort display at 30Hz, your monitor must support the resolution and refresh rate. If your monitor also supports 4K at 60Hz (DP 1.2 or higher), you may also need to set the monitor to work at 30Hz.
To resolve this issue, use the buttons on your monitor to change the DisplayPort settings to DP1.1. For more information about how to change your monitor settings, refer to the website of the manufacturer of your monitor.
To output 4K to a DisplayPort display at 60Hz your monitor must support the resolution and refresh rate. If your monitor supports 4K at 60Hz (DP1.2 or higher) you may also need to set the monitor to work at 60Hz.
