Video Training Series: Type-C Video Series, Kits, and Tools

A series of training videos to cover Type-C with an introduction to kits, tools, and demonstration of concepts such as the reversible plug and cable, alternative modes, and power delivery up to 100W. For more information on Cypress's USB Type-C products, please visit

Video Length: 

This lesson introduces the class and briefly covers Cypress Type-C and USB-PD kits and devices. The kits include the CY4202 (CCG2), CY4531 (CCG3), Cy4541 (CCG4) and the CY4500 EZ-PD Protocol Analyzer.

Video Length: 

This lesson discusses basic Type-C and USB-PD concepts such as the reversible plug and cable, alternate modes such as Display port, and power delivery up to 100W. The CY4531 CCG3 kit is used to show simultaneous USB, Display Port, and Power Delivery over a single Type-C cable.

Video Length: 

This lesson explains the CC (Configuration Channel) including power contract negotiation, Dual Role Prots (DRPs), and role swaps. It shows how the CY4500 EZ-PD Protocol Analyzer can be used along with the EZ-PD Analyzer Utility to understand and debug USB-PD messages. The demonstrations from the previous video are repeated with the CY4500 Protocol Analyzer used to examine the CC messages.

Video Length: 

This lesson shows how to use the EZ-PD Configuration Utility to read and modify parameters of a Cypress CCG device. Specifically, the lesson demonstrates how to read/ modify a power profile and then shows how the modified profile affects the power contract.

Video Length: 

This lesson covers the use of the EZ-PD SDK in order to customize the behavior of a CCG device. In this case, an input button is configured to cause a source capabilities request from the port partner in an existing connection. A brief introduction to using PSoC Creator with the SDK is done. 

Video Length: 

This lesson demonstrates the example projects and configurations provided with the CY4541 CCG4 kit. It shows and explains the examples that are documented in the kit guide.


CY4500 EZ-PD™ Protocol Analyzer

Cy4500 Kit

The CY4500 EZ-PD™ Protocol Analyzer records traffic passively on the Configuration Channel (CC) and allows user to analyze and debug USB Power Delivery communication.

CY4531 EZ-PD™ CCG3 Evaluation Kit

CY4531 Kit

The EZ-PD™ CY4531 CCG3 Evaluation Kit (EVK) is based on the CCG3 product family (CYPD3xxx) of Cypress's USB Type-C controller with Power Delivery.

CY4541 EZ-PD™ CCG4 Evaluation Kit

CY4541 Kit

CY4541 EZ-PD™ CCG4 Evaluation Kit enables designers to exercise the functionality of CCG4 controllers for a Two-Port USB Type-C based Host System.

CY4502 EZ-PD™ CCG2 Development Kit

CY4502 Kit

CY4502 enables designers to evaluate the functionality of CCG2 controllers in Type-C EMCA (Electronically Marked Cable Assembly) cables.
