USB Power delivery is the next frontier for in-car charging of phones, tablets and mobile PCs: a common cabling for data and power delivery is instrumental to improve re-use and reduce electronic waste; furthermore a cable reversibility enhances user-experience significantly.

The USB Power delivery protocol enables the connection of different devices with different power  profiles:the power negotiation protocol determines the voltage and current profile that the provider shall supply to the consumer. 

ST offers a  demo kit to evaluate the USB Power Delivery protocol stack version 2.0 implemented on the ASIL-B automotive grade 32-bit Power Architecture® microcontroller.

The kit is built out of a composition of basic boards: SPC58 MCU board with various peripherals (CAN, LIN, Ethernet among others) and an interface board hosting two USB Type-C controllers (STUSB1702) for two separate ports. On top of the interface board, a specific connector is provided for external power boards able to extend available power profiles (PDOs). Together with flexible hardware, an easy customizable software is provided: the software is built with different abstraction layers and is running parallel tasks on a free real-time operating system (RTOS).

    • The SL-PELSTR-B002 Solution is a complete Hardware and Software kit for dual port USB Type –C Power delivery. It is composed of:

      The AEKD-USBTYPEC1 power delivery evaluation kit including in one box the following hardware:

      • SPC58EC-DISP Microcontroller discovery board
      • AEK-USB-2TYPEC1 dual port USB Type-C interface board with a pair of STUSB1702Y automotive grade USB Type-C controllers

       

      and STSW-USB2TYPEC1 firmware (MCU flash image).

      The kit is very flexible, scalable, customizable and automotive grade compliant. Through the Microcontroller Discovery board, you can expand your application by connecting additional boards.

      The SPC58EC-DISP discovery board hosts SPC58 ASIL-B automotive grade 32-bit Power Architecture microcontroller with, CAN ports, Flex port and Ethernet port among others. The microcontroller pins are multi-functions, i.e. through internal microcontroller register programming, it is possible to assign different functionalities to the same pin. The capability of SPC5 to configure its pins and the intuitive graphical interface of SPC5 Studio development environment are key elements for fast-prototyping and customizable application design.

      The functional interface board, AEK-USB-2TYPEC1, hosts a pair of STUSB1702Y, automotive grade USB Type-C controller with TX/RX line driver and BMC, one for each USB Type-C port. The board contains devices for ESD protection, dual Transil™ array ESDA25LY and very low capacitance USBLC6-2SC6Y. The ports status are monitored on the board through some LEDs. One of this LED (the green one on each port) will turn-on once the power profile negotiation is successfully reached between provider and consumer.

      The firmware STSW-USB2TYPEC1 is pre-loaded on the SPC58EC-DISP discovery board and it is available for download from ST.COM after registration.

      In addition to the STSW-USB2TYPEC1 firmware, the following software is available:

      • A driver dedicated to the STUSB1702Y device
      • An SPC5 Studio plugin for the USB Power Delivery software stack
      • A demo application
        The software can be configured via SPC5 Studio.
