If you are asking about the multiport adapter that I have, there is a small
enclosed module (of some sort) in a small, not easily / obviously openable,
enclosure, with "sockets" for VGA, (2x) USB (the old style large connector),
RJ-45, USB-C. There is an attached short cable with a USB-C plug on the end
to connect to a laptop.
