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 24 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).
Please note: This board does not expose the Type-C connector's 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.
