Our USB Type-C shield board combined with the MCUXpresso SDK allows you to tether a USB Type-C connector to Freedom development boards based on Kinetis® MCUs, LPCXpresso development boards or i.MX RT development platforms. This dramatically shortens the learning curve by leveraging our unique “ready to play” hardware and SDK library.
Unlike competitors who use a dedicated processor to execute power delivery firmware, our USB Type-C shield uses a Kinetis Arm® MCU to execute power delivery firmware—providing tremendous BOM reduction and software development flexibility. The USB Type-C shield board includes a USB 3.1 signal conditioning product, a high-voltage VBUS power switch and authentication products.
