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
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
