What is Infineon's recommended method to use USB-C to interconnect devices designed for PCIe?

Will one of the Peripheral Devices: FX3, CX3 or SX3 convert the PCIe data to USB 3.0?

Cypress USB Type-C Controller Supported Solutions - KBA97179 @ https://community.cypress.com/t5/Knowledge-Base-Articles/Cypress-USB-Type-C-Controller-Supported-Sol... mentions PCIe in context with Display Port data, suggesting use of Alternate Mode.

Hi Greg,

Our USB 3.0 peripheral controllers FX3, CX3 and SX3 arent capable of PCIe to USB conversion. 

However, you could use the USB4 interface or Thunderbolt alternate mode which supports PCIe over USB Type-C interface with any of our latest Type-C PD controllers.

Best Regards,
Sananya
