Mouser Electronics is now stocking the Texas Instruments TUSB320 family of USB Type-C configuration channel logic and port controllers from Texas Instruments (TI). The TUSB320 family of devices provide USB Type-C configuration channel (CC) logic and port control, making it possible for a system to detect the orientation of the plug, and determine the appropriate USB specification and mode settings for the end equipment.
The TI TUSB320 devices, available from Mouser Electronics, can be configured as a downstream-facing port (DFP), upstream-facing port (UFP), or a dual-role port (DRP). The family of products supports USB 2.0 and USB 3.1, giving designers the flexibility to use these devices in multiple USB-enabled designs. The TUSB320 family also contains several features (such as mode configuration and low standby current), which make this device applicable for source or sinks in USB 2.0 applications. The device operates over a wide supply range (2.7Vbus – 5.5Vbus) and offers low power consumption; its low shutdown power of 8 mW benefits a variety of battery-powered applications.
The TUSB320 family of devices offers I2C or GPIO control, an industrial temperature range of -40 to +85 degrees Celsius, and support for up to 3A advertisement and detection. The devices can be used for host, device, and dual-role port applications in mobile phones, tablets, and USB peripherals.
The TUSB320EVM, also available from Mouser Electronics, provides an evaluation platform for the TUSB320 device. This plug-and-play module is configurable via onboard DIP switches for DFP, UFP, or DRP implementations, operating in I2C or GPIO mode.
