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 uses a slimmer connector (measuring only 2.4-mm in height) to allow for increasing miniaturization of consumer and industrial products. The USB Type-C standard is gaining rapid support by enabling small form-factor, easy-to-use connectors and cables with the ability to transmit multiple protocols and offer power delivery up to 100 W – a significant improvement over the 7.5 W for previous standards.

 

USB Type-C Highlights

  • - Brand new reversible connector, measuring only 2.4-mm in height
  • - Compliant with USB Power Delivery 2.0, providing up to 100 W
  • - Double the bandwidth of USB 3.0, increasing to 10 Gbps with SuperSpeed+ USB3.1
  • - Combines multiple protocols in a single cable, including DisplayPort™, PCIe® or Thunderbolt™

For more information on Type-C technology and its applications, please watch the training video available here. This training video explains the technological advances introduced with the new USB IF’s Type-C Specification. It also shows how USB-Type-C can be designed into practical products. The four applications covered in this video are: host design, cable design, peripheral design and power adapter design. Working prototype of Reference Designs are presented for each application area along with design and debug tools.   

Cypress’s Type-C controllers are based on Cypress’s PSoC® 4 programmable system-on-chip architecture, which includes programmable analog and digital blocks, an ARM® Cortex®-M0 core and 32 KB of flash memory. This product family is driving the industry’s first Type-C products with top-tier PC makers, enabling them to bring these USB Type-C benefits to market. Cypress has reference designs readily available for EMCA and dongle applications. These are available online and could be used to speed-up our customers design cycle.
