The tech world tends to use a lot of acronyms, and LAVA is no exception. But the challenge with acronyms is that if their meanings are unclear it becomes very hard to understand what is being discussed.
Below is an updated reference guide of LAVA’s naming conventions, and the product attributes they are associated with.
n = normal – SimulCharge with Docking Detect
u = upgraded – SimulCharge with Continuously Active Battery Modulation (CABM)
e = enhanced – SimulCharge with Battery Modulation and Network Recovery (RBM)
LTS = Lenovo Tablet SimulCharge
STS = Samsung Tablet SimulCharge
SynC = SimulCharge for USB-C
SynC+ = SimulCharge for USB-C with RBM
BM = Battery Modulation
CABM= Continuously Active Battery Modulation
RBM = Recovery & Battery Modulation
#U = Number of USB Ports available on the adapter
E = Ethernet port is present (RJ45 connector)
P = Power over Ethernet capable adapter (through RJ45 connector)
OEM (LAVA) = LAVA OEM products are board only units with no casing
vc = Voltage Converter
SimulCharge: A technology developed by LAVA that allows select mobile devices to operate as an USB Host Controller, while being simultaneously charged.
OTG= USB On-The-Go is a specification that allows USB devices to act as a USB host. It is not the same as SimulCharge
PoE: Power over Ethernet
OEM (General) = Original Equipment Manufacturer
USB-C PD = USB C Power Delivery
MDM = Mobile Device Management Solutions
We hope this reference guide serves as a useful tool to understand what LAVA products are and what they are capable of accomplishing.
