The X-NUCLEO-DRP1M1 expansion board allows evaluating the features of TCPP03-M20 and the USB Type-C™ features and protections required for VBUS and CC lines suitable for dual role power (DRP) applications.
The expansion board can be stacked on top of any STM32 Nucleo-64 with Power Delivery (UCPD) peripheral embedded in their microcontrollers.
The X-NUCLEO-DRP1M1 effectively demonstrates the dead battery and Sink operation, thanks to the integrated ST715PU33R LDO linear regulator that supplies the connected STM32 Nucleo development board. It also demonstrates USB Type-C™ Source operation when a compatible external Source is connected to the board.
Moreover, the expansion board allows Dual Role Data functionalities for sourcing devices.
The X-NUCLEO-DRP1M1 is compliant with the USB Type-C™ and Power Delivery specifications 3.1 standard power range (SPR) and is USB-IF certified as a 100 W DRP solution supporting programmable power supply (PPS).
The companion software package (X-CUBE-TCPP) contains the application examples for development boards embedding UCPD-based microcontrollers (NUCLEO-G071RB and NUCLEO-G474RE) that can be ported to other development boards embedding UCPD-based microcontrollers (for example, NUCLEO-G0B1RE).
