Hands-On Training Workshop: Introduction to USB 3.0 Peripheral Design

Last Updated:

August 26, 2015

USB Type-C is the new USB-IF standard that solves several challenges faced by today's Type-A and Type-B cables and connectors. USB Type-C is slimmer (measuring only 2.4-mm in height), reversible, handles multiple-protocols (USB 3.1 – 10Gbps, DisplayPort, PCIe or Thunderbolt) and supports up to 100-W of Power Delivery.

In this half-day technical workshop, you will be introduced to USB Type-C and Power Delivery and various applications for EZ-PD CCG1 and EZ-PD CCG2. The workshop labs will cover EMCA and Dongle design. You will have an opportunity to learn how to create low BOM EMCA designs with CCG2. There will be demos for Type-C to DisplayPort and USB 3.1 with Power Delivery.


Workshop Objectives:


By the end of this workshop, you will:

  • Understand the basics of the new USB Type-C standard
  • Understand the different types of Electronically Marked Cable Assembly (EMCA) applications
  • Know how to simplify the design of your EMCA using the Cypress Easy Power Delivery (EZ-PD) Type-C controller Gen 2 (CCG2)
    • - Know the schematic requirements for different types of EMCAs
    • - Know how to quickly design different types of EMCA using the CY4502 EZ-PD CCG2 Development Kit
    • - Know how to update configuration parameters of EMCA with vendor-specific information
