Using USB Type-C connectors to combine both USB-C 3.1 and DisplayPort data streams, to support data, audio, video and power connections on a single port
SoC developers who want to use USB Type-C in their designs will have to implement HDCP 2.2 content protection so that the target devices will be able to play protected content.
Thinner phones are going to need new connectors. Many designers are considering USB Type-C, and the related Audio Device Class 3.0 specification (ADC 3.0), for use in high-quality digital headsets.
The USB Type-C connector is versatile and already gaining traction in laptops, tablets and desktops. Here's how verification IP plays an important role in achieving the best implementation.
USB 2.0 could become an integration standard for IoT SoCs, due to its ubiquity, available drivers, support for rapid prototyping, and area efficiency.
A look at three design challenges for USB Type-C: implementing two SuperSpeed datapaths on a reversible connector; partitioning the design to support multiple USB Type-C variants; and partitioning the management software.
The arrival of USB Type C provides an opportunity for SoC design teams with opportunities to provide customers with significant cost savings. Integrated IP will help the process.
Implementing the reversible connector of USB Type-C demands a rethink of the PHY architecture to achieve the most cost-effective IP solution
