USB Type-C: capacitors between CC1/CC2 and GND
« on: December 25, 2019, 01:29:14 pm »
I'm looking at the schematic of a breakout board for FUSB302 (Programmable USB Type-C Controller with PD).

The schematic (attached) has 470pF caps between the CC1/CC2 lines and ground.

The official breakout board (https://www.onsemi.com/pub/Collateral/EVBUM2509-D.PDF, page 3) also has caps, only 200pF.

I can't seem to find any docs about the purpose of those caps.  Would appreciate if someone could explain why they're needed.

(I'm designing an FUSB302-based USB-PD sink, for my own amusement/education, and am trying to figure out whether I should include these caps and how to choose them.)

This caps are needed to comply with USB PD specification (BMC cReceiver capacitance 200-600pF). According to Datasheet of FUSB302, cReceiver capacitance is just 50pF typ, so there is room for additional cap and/or TVS protection diode.

Thanks for this.  Now that I know what to look for, I found this note that future readers might find useful:
