Basic USBC SINK¶
This example demonstrates how to create a USBC Power Delivery application using a TypeC Port Controller (TCPC) driver. The application implements a USBC Sink device.
After the USBC Sink device is powered, an LED begins to blink and when the USBC Sink device is plugged into a Power Delivery charger, it negotiates with the charger to provide 5V@100mA and displays all Power Delivery Objects (PDOs) provided by the charger.
Please note that this example does not implement any of the features and requirements outlined in the USBC Specification needed to create a robust USBC Sink device. It is meant for demonstration purposes only.
The TCPC device that’s used by the sample is specified by defining a devicetree
node label named
The sample has been tested on ST STM32G081B Evaluation and provides an
overlay file for both board.
For the ST STM32G081B Evaluation, Port 2 is configured as a Sink and Port 1 is unused. So, the charger must be plugged into Port 2.
Building and Running¶
Build and flash Sink as follows, changing
stm32g081b_eval_board for your board:
west build -b stm32g081b_eval_board samples/boards/usbc/sink west flash
After flashing, the LED starts to blink. Connect a charger and see console output:
