USB Type-C controller (with Vconn switch)

The STUSB1600 is a generic IC designed in a 20 V technology. It addresses USB Type-C™ port management both on the host and/or device side, and is suited for a broad range of applications. It is fully compliant with the USB Type-C cable and connector specifications (Rel. 1.2).

The STUSB1600 can handle all functions from Type-C attach detection, plug orientation detection, host to device connection, VCONN support, and VBUS configuration.

Additionally, the STUSB1600 provides support for dead battery operation and is fully customizable (thanks to an integrated non-volatile memory).
