NXP USB Type C Solutions – Inside the Lab

Welcome to Inside the Lab with Arrow Electronics, the web series dedicated to exploring the latest in technology and electronics. In this episode, we'll discuss NXP's USB Type C solutions.

USB Type C is frequently confused with the new USB 3.1 standard as they came out at about the same time but the Type C connectors are the physical standards of the cables and connectors, whereas the 3.1 standard defines a faster transfer mode.  The Type C connector has many improvements over the standard USB cables and plugs we have used up to this point.

As you can see here, the type C is reversible, making it easier to plug in.  This is the most obvious change, and while it's convenient, not the most important.  As I'm going to show with this demo, Type C connectors are rated for transferring up to one hundred watts of power, while simultaneously transferring data, and video.  The communicating devices can also request different voltage levels, for greater flexibility between connecting low power or power hungry devices.

NXP offers solutions for every part of the system, and include high speed switches, analog switches, USB redrivers, USB logic controllers, USB load switches, AC to DC converters, authentication devices, interface filtering, and MOSFETs.  To learn more about how to integrate NXP's Type-C  products into your next project, visit arrow.com's Design Center
