Customer FAQ

Q 1 .   Is this compatible with a Mac? OSX 10.11 (El Capitan)
Answer:

It doesn’t work with Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) because OS X 10.11 built-in driver does not support XHCI 1.1.

Q 2 .   Support for ASUS MB169C+?
Answer:

No. PU31-1A1C does NOT support DP Alt Mode on USB-C port.

Q 3 .   Is this compatible with Mac OSX 10.12 Sierra?
Answer:

Yes, the adapter works with Mac OS X 10.12, and previous versions from 10.9 to 10.10. It does NOT work with OS X 10.11 because the built-in drivers exclude support for XHCI 1.1.

Q 4 .   What is the SATA power connector for? Does it require to be connected?
Answer:

The 15-pin SATA power connection is optional. It depends on the USB devices/applications whether to get the SATA power connected to PC power supply. For PU31-1A1C, the USB-A port can provide up to 5V/2A power and USB-C port  provides up to 5V/3A power. If full load each USB port, it requires at least 10W (5V*2A) + 15W (5V*3A) = 25W power. Per PCI Express specification, the power supplied from PCIe bus to a 4-lane/low profile card is 10W (max). Therefore, it requires additional power source such as SATA power from PC power supply.
