This is the single port reference design that converts USB Type-C® input power to DC output or DC input to USB Type-C® output sourcing power.

The USB Type-C® port is dual role power (DRP) and supports both sink and source modes.

By using a dedicated FW, this board can also function as a USB PD Exerciser (sends or responds to USB PD commands like a real device) that can be used to investigate or analyze USB PD communications.

The following tool is provided for firmware customization:

  • Firmware generation support tool (PDC image generator, PDC-IMGGEN): GUI tool that can change parameters of USB PD protocols


  • USB Power Delivery and USB-Type-C®
    • One USB-Type-C® port
    • Power Role: Dual Role Power (DRP) - Power Source voltage: 5, 9, 15, 20V and other voltages up to 20V - Power Sink voltage: 5 to 20V
    • Supports Programmable Power Supply (PPS) function - Up to 5VProg supported (3.3V to 5.9V VBUS power supply, additional voltage options are under evaluation)
    • Supports USB-Type-C® Authentication (C-Auth) feature (RTK0EUG011D08010BJ only)
    • Supports USB Power Delivery Firmware Update (PDFU) feature (RTK0EUG011D08010BJ only)
