Docking Detect

Consistent Reliable Connections

Docking Detect ensures that LAVA n Series SimulCharge™ adapters establish a proper communications link with the mobile device each and every time the two are connected


Are your mobile device’s peripherals dropping out?

With a LAVA SimulCharge™ adapter, the mobile device is able to remain USB Host while it charges. This means it can still have access to any peripherals plugged into the adapter. However, when the two devices are plugged in together, it's possible that the initial communication between them, the so-called handshake or greeting protocols, don't initiate properly. The connection can also drop out if it's plugged in for a long period of time. Normally, you would need to unplug the mobile device and plug it back in to properly re-establish the connection.

Our Solution

Docking Detect ensures the “greeting protocols” between the mobile device and adapter are executed consistently and correctly every time they are plugged in. Built into LAVA’s n and u Series enterprise SimulCharge™ adapters, the hardware-driven technology automatically connects the mobile device to data and power every time it is plugged in.

How Docking Detect Works

Docking Detect is a plug-and-play technology that requires no additional software or hardware to operate. Every time the mobile device is plugged into a SimulCharge™ adapter, the “greeting protocols” are initiated between the two devices. Docking Detect confirms this process executes correctly.
