Reclaimer Labs have a nifty USB-C breakout board available here at Tindie.
Want to play around with the new USB Type-C connector? You’ll need a chip to manage the CC pins. This board allows you to use I2C and an interrupt line to perform all necessary USB-C functions. At the heart of this board is the Fairchild FUSB302, a Type-C port controller and BMC PHY. You can use this chip to do any and all of the following:
Determine plug orientation (normal or reversed)
Determine or advertise Type-C power levels (5 V at 0.5, 1.5, or 3.0 A)
Use BMC communication to negotiate USB Power Delivery Explicit Contracts up to 20 V and 5 A (100 W of power)
Negotiate Alternate Modes to reuse the pins in the Type-C connector for other purposes
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
