How many Connectors for HDMI cables??

  • Can you guys verify this for me?

  • There are five HDMI connector types. Type A/B are defined in the HDMI 1.0 specification, type C is defined in the HDMI 1.3 specification, and type D/E are defined in the HDMI 1.4 specification.

    Type A
    The plug (male) connector outside dimensions are 13.9 mm × 4.45 mm, and the receptacle (female) connector inside dimensions are 14 mm × 4.55 mm.[93] There are 19 pins, with bandwidth to carry all SDTV, EDTV and HDTV modes.[8] It is electrically compatible with single-link DVI-D.[94]

    Type B
    This connector is 21.2 mm × 4.45 mm and has 29 pins, carrying six differential pairs instead of three, for use with very high-resolution future displays such as WQUXGA (3,840×2,400).[94][95] It is electrically compatible with dual-link DVI-D, but has not yet been used in any products.[94][96] However, the use of the extra three differential pairs is reserved as of 1.3 specification.

    Type C
    This Mini connector is smaller than the type A plug, measuring 10.42 mm × 2.42 mm but has the same 19-pin configuration.[97][98] It is intended for portable devices.[4][97][99] The differences are that all positive signals of the differential pairs are swapped with their corresponding shield, the DDC/CEC Ground is assigned to pin 13 instead of pin 17, the CEC is assigned to pin 14 instead of pin 13, and the reserved pin is 17 instead of pin 14.[100] The type C Mini connector can be connected to a type A connector using a type A-to-type C cable.[97][99]

    Type D
    This Micro connector shrinks the connector size to something resembling a micro-USB connector,[99][101][102] measuring only 6.4 mm × 2.8 mm [103] For comparison, a micro-USB connector is 6.85 mm × 1.8 mm and a USB Type A connector is 11.5 mm × 4.5 mm. It keeps the standard 19 pins of types A and C, but the pin assignment is different from both.[104]

    Type E
    The Automotive Connection System[105] has a locking tab to keep the cable from vibrating loose and a shell to help prevent moisture and dirt from interfering with the signals. A relay connector is available for connecting standard consumer cables to the automotive type.[106]
