USB 2.0 Type-C Connector Breakout Board (usb07b)
This simple board breaks out the power, USB 2.0 data, configuration, and sideband pins of a USB Type-C connector to a 0.1″ spacing that is compatible with standard perfboards, solderless breadboards, and 0.1″ connectors. On-board CC pull-down resistors make it easy to use the receptacle in a power-sinking application.
The USB Type-C connector is intended to supersede a wide range of existing USB connectors. It is reversible and can serve in both USB host and USB device roles, allowing either end of a cable to be plugged into a receptacle with either side up, and it can support negotiation of increased power (up to 20 V and 5 A) and alternate uses of the USB interface wires.
The USB-C connector’s 16 tightly-spaced pins make it difficult to use in a hobby project or prototype design. This breakout board helps by providing access to the connector’s pins for power (VBUS and GND), USB 2.0 differential data (D+ and D−), Configuration Channel (CC), and Sideband Use (SBU). Each of these pins is broken out into a 1×8 row of 0.1″-spaced pins on the board, along with duplicate VBUS and GND pins for high-current applications. The included 1×10 straight male header can be soldered to these pins to allow the board to be used with standard perfboards, solderless breadboards, and 0.1″ connectors.
This tiny unit measures only 0.8″ × 0.5″ (0.8″ × 0.55″ including its USB Type-C connector) and has two 0.086″ diameter mounting holes for #2 or M2 screws.
Note: This board does not provide access to the USB 3.1 SuperSpeed differential pairs (TX and RX signals), so it only supports USB 2.0 Low-Speed, Full-Speed, and High-Speed communication.
