Application note from ON Semiconductor on USB Type-C connector supporting non-USB standard charging protocol, Link here (PDF)

When designing hardware systems with Type−C connectors, a designer also has to consider all legacy, standard, and non-standard specifications that exist in the USB connector eco system. With the introduction of the Type−C connector and the Configuration channel (CC Pin) new challenges occur trying to ensure overall system robustness. This note addresses some of the concerns with the CC pin in a robust system environment.

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?
  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
