What is USB Type-C and what are its applications? Where can I find a list of reference designs involving Cypress Type-C solutions?
The USB Type-C specification is the new USB-IF standard that solves several challenges faced by traditional USB connectors and cables. Type-C enables slim industrial design with a 2.4-mm plug height, reversible plug orientation and cable detection, transport of both USB signals and PCIe or DisplayPort signals on the same connector, and easy implementation of low-cost power delivery up to 100 W.

Type-C controllers will soon be present in host systems (typically a notebook or tablet), client systems (such as monitor, hard disk, flash drive, and mouse) and in cables (to communicates its capabilities to the host system). In addition, Type-C systems are designed in power adapters, which will negotiate and deliver power to notebooks, monitors, and other applications. Type-C solutions are also used in adapters/converters between legacy devices and the new Type-C port. For example, in notebooks that do not have additional display ports, the CCG-based solution can convert the Type-C connector to a DisplayPort connector. Equipment manufacturers are excited about the capabilities and benefits that Type-C brings to a solution and the transition to Type-C is expected to be more rapid than previous USB connector changes.
The following development kits and reference designs are available to get started with CCG solutions:
