Sonnet Announces Dual Display Adapters For Apple M1 Mac Computers

Sonnet Technologies, a provider of Thunderbolt technology for connecting peripherals to computers, based in Irvine, California, has announced its DisplayLink Dual DisplayPort Adapter and the DisplayLink Dual HDMI Adapter for M1 Macs.

These additions to the company’s line of dual display adapters for Intel, M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max Mac, and Windows computers, incorporate a captive cable with a USB-A connector, with a USB-A female connector to USB-C male connector adapter. It connects to a compatible computer’s USB or Thunderbolt port for bus-powered operation.

These adapters are ideal for use with productivity software such as Microsoft Office, enabling users to work more efficiently by expanding their computer’s workspace, according to the company. This could be opening multiple applications on their own screens, editing code or viewing spreadsheets in detail on a large display, or mirroring their computer’s display on a larger monitor. They can also connect a computer to a big-screen TV for browsing the web and watching videos on YouTube and other content at a distance.

Currently the latest 13-inch Apple MacBook Air and MacBook Pro computers include only two Thunderbolt/USB4 ports for connecting peripherals, including displays and charging the computer. Sonnet’s DisplayLink Dual Display Adapters for M1 Mac computers overcome the computers’ limitations to enable users to connect two 4K 60Hz displays at once to one port on their computer, saving the other port for charging or for connecting an additional peripheral device.

Thunderbolt is the brand name of a hardware interface for connecting external peripherals to a computer, originally developed by Intel.
