    Question:
    Is additional Superspeed MUX required to design a CCGx Application Project?

     

    Answer:

    Yes. Additional superspeed MUX is required if you are designing a Type-C receptacle and supporting the USB3.0/DisplayPort/HDMI/TBT3/4 because the pin assignment of USB3.0/DisplayPort/HDMI/TBT3/4 is done based on the CC orientation of Type-C partner plugin. Alternately, you could save the superspeed MUX in any of the following plugins:

      • Type-C plug interface
      • Type-C receptacle supporting USB2.0 only 
      • Firmware developing on USB3.0 host/device
      • Firmware developing on DisplayPort source CPU
