Solution Description

This USB Type-C™ and Power Delivery Analyzer is designed to lower the costs and complexities associated with application development and debugging involving USB Type-C™ communication and Power Delivery. The solution offers all necessary interfaces for immediate connection and communication with other USB Type-C™ devices, providing access to port characteristics such as data roles, power roles, VBUS and IBUS monitoring.

The solution is based on the STM32G0 certified USB-C Power Delivery 3.0 microcontroller, running the STM32CubeMonUCPD software analyzer to monitor and configure USB Type-C and Power Delivery applications. It supports USB Type-C™ 1.2 and USB PD 2.0/3.0 specifications and may be executed in standalone sink mode or spy mode.

In spy mode, it connects in-line and passively captures all CC1 and CC2 communication signals between two Type-C products. It does not disturb any USB 3.1 Gen 2 or USB 2.0 signals, and allows monitoring of PD power negotiation, USB data roles, and Type-C Alternate Modes such as DisplayPort. The standalone sink mode, instead allows certain protocol actions to be executed.
