USB Type-C and Power Delivery Nucleo Pack with NUCLEO-F072RB

The STM32 Nucleo pack for USB Type-Cand Power Delivery (P-NUCLEO-USB001) is a development tool to learn and develop solutions based on USB Type-Cand USB Power Delivery technologies.

This tool, in association with the certified embedded software solution (X-CUBE-USB-PD), provides the means to control two USB Type-Cports using a single STM32F072 32-bit microcontroller based on ARM Cortex-M0. The X-CUBE-USB-PD is compliant with the USB Type-C 1.2 and USB Power Delivery 2.0 specifications. A simple analog front-end PHY is required to interface the STM32F072 MCU with the Configuration Channels (CC lines) of the Type-C receptacles and to allow the communication over these lines using the Power Delivery communication protocol.

The P-NUCLEO-USB001 is fully configurable and ready to support different configurations like Provider, Consumer or DRP.

X-CUBE-USB-PD is compliant with the USB Type-C1.2 and the Power Delivery 2.0 specifications.
