The second board is the 100W Sink Evaluation Board with the STUSB4500 autorun controller from ST. It allows straightforward migration from STD-B, micro-B or custom power plugs to a Type-C connector. This solution is ideal for automatically prompting a charging process – even if the battery is empty. The STUSB4500 supports up to 3 PDOs. Typical applications are electronic devices charged through USB Type-C connector.
The third board is the 100W Source Demo Board with the STUSB1602 – an analog front-end that is a companion chip of the STM32 microcontroller – and on board DC/DC converter. The STUSB1602 provides up to 5 PDOs. Typical applications include power-source applications such as AC adapters, power supplies, power hubs, smart plugs and DC-DC applications.
