NXP offers a complete end-to-end solution, allowing for the seamless connectivity...
All over a single USB type-c connector.
Here we have a smart monitor and a commercially available laptop connected by a USB Type-C cable.
We also have two AC to DC converters -- one authorized and one unauthorized.
If the unauthorized AC to DC converter is used to power the smart monitor, the monitor cannot authenticate the converter and will display “Unauthorized” and only 5 volts of power will go to the laptop through the Type-C cable.
If the authorized AC to DC converter is used to power the smart monitor, the monitor will authenticate the converter and will display “Authorized” and will send 20 volts of power to the laptop through the USB Type-C cable.
Next, we’ll insert a USB 3.0 thumb drive that contains a high-definition video into the smart monitor.
The video data from the thumb drive will be transferred over the Type-C cable and onto the laptop, where the data will be decoded and displayed on the laptop and the smart monitor.
You can even unplug the power source from the monitor and it will still work. The monitor will perform a power swap to request power from the laptop over the Type-C cable and the video will continue to play on both screens.
As you can see NXP has a comprehensive portfolio of devices to implement a full, end-to-end solution for any Type-C application.
