Where to buy

This USB-C™ to VGA video adapter lets you output high-definition VGA video from your USB Type-C™ device.

USB Type-C is a universal connectivity standard that combines all of your essential functions into one dynamic port. The connector is featured on ultra-portable devices with USB 3.1 Gen 1. This adapter works with USB-C devices that pass a DisplayPort video signal, such as the MacBook and Chromebook Pixel™. It's also compatible with Thunderbolt™ 3 ports.

Portable convenience

This USB Type-C video adapter maximizes portability with a lightweight, small-footprint design, which makes it the perfect accessory to carry with your MacBook or Chromebook, fitting easily into your laptop bag or carrying case. This ultra-portable design makes this adapter perfect for BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) applications at the office.

Hassle-free connection with USB Type-C

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 work, saving you the hassle and embarrassment of struggling with your device when you're trying to present.

Crystal clear picture quality

The adapter supports video resolutions up to 1920x1200 or 1080p. You’ll be surprised at the picture quality the adapter provides, even when connected to a legacy VGA monitor, projector or television. The adapter harnesses the video capabilities built into your USB Type-C connection to deliver every detail in stunning high-definition.

The CDP2VGA is backed by a 3-year StarTech.com warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Note: Your USB-C equipped device must support video to work with this adapter. The adapter will not output digitally encrypted content.

Frequently Asked Questions

Troubleshooting

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 cables

  • Video adapter

  • 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.

The error “Out of Range” normally means that the resolution being output by the computer is not compatible with the display. Try lowering the resolution to see if that helps resolve the issue.  You may need to connect another monitor or restart the computer or source to accomplish this.

Before You Buy

USB-C is a type of USB connector that is capable of supporting the following:

  • Data transfer speeds up to 10Gbps, if you use USB 3.1.
  • Bi-directional power delivery up to 100W, if both the USB host connection and the device support it.
  • Alternate modes, which deliver different types of data at different speeds. For example, DisplayPort Alternate Mode (DP Alt Mode).

If using Thunderbolt 3 over USB-C, the connection is capable of additional features. For example, Thunderbolt 3 is capable of 40Gbps of total bandwidth. For more information, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/thunderbolt-3-port-capabilities.

Not all USB-C ports or devices are capable of supporting all of the features listed above, or all of the features at the maximum capabilities. If you require a specific USB-C feature, your USB host connection, cables, and device must all support the feature that you require. For more information about whether your components support specific USB-C features, refer to the information provided by the manufacturers. 

This USB-C device requires that all of the following components support alternate modes:

  • The USB-C host connection (for example, a computer and its port)
  • The USB-C cable
  • The USB-C device (for example, a hard drive docking station)

If your host device includes a Thunderbolt™ 3 connection, this USB-C device will work with your host device.

For more information about the modes that your setup components support, refer to the information provided by the manufacturers.
