USB Type C Power Delivery
USB-C is the emerging standard for charging and transferring data. Available right now in laptops, phones, and tablets, as well as the newest vehicles, it is only a matter of time that it will replace its predecessors that use older legacy USB connectors.
With its impressive range of features, from reversibility and 20Gbps transfer speeds to 100W of power delivery, implementing USB-C can be daunting task.
This presentation serves to demystify USB-C by walking you through:
- How a USB Type C connection is established, from detecting connector orientation, power roles (source versus sink), implicit and explicit power profile negotiations
- Other useful features (Factory Debug Mode, Alternate Mode, Vendor Defined Messages)
- Major components needed for implementation (block diagram)
- Notable supplier solutions
