  • Patent number: 10948517
    Abstract: A test device and a method are provided in the invention. The test device includes a first connection interface, a storage device, a processor and a second connection interface. The first connection interface is coupled to a device under test (DUT) and obtains power information from the DUT according to a first instruction. The storage device stores the power information. The processor is coupled to the first connection interface and storage device, when the first connection interface is coupled to the DUT, sends the first instruction to the first connection interface, receives the power information from the first connection interface, and stores the power information in the storage device. The second connection interface is coupled to an external controlling system, sends the power information to the external controlling system and receives a test instruction from the external controlling system to test the DUT.

  • Patent number: 10664434
    Abstract: A module comprising a USB Type-C receptacle, a USB Type-C plug and a logic unit is disclosed. A power pin of the receptacle is connected with another power pin of the plug via a switch. A CC pin of the receptacle is connected to ground through a pull-down resistance. Another CC pin of the plug is connected to the logic unit through a pull-up resistance. The module connects with a power source device being a power sink-role in order to receive a source capability of the power source device, then turns on the switch and transforms itself to a power source-role. The module connects to a DRP device afterward being the power source-role to act for the power source device and perform a USB PD communication with the DRP device.

  • Patent number: 10545550
    Abstract: A power-up control circuit is provided and includes a pull-down resistor, a pull-down switch, and an enable device. A first terminal of the pull-down resistor is electrically connected to a configuration channel pin of a USB Type-C connection port. The pull-down switch is electrically connected to a second terminal of the pull-down resistor and a ground node. The enable device is electrically connected to the pull-down switch and the configuration channel pin. When receiving a voltage detection signal which is transmitted by a dual-role port device through the configuration channel pin, the enable device turns on the pull-down switch to electrically connect the pull-down resistor to the ground node, so that the dual-role port device detects the pull-down resistor through the configuration channel pin and supplies power to the microcontroller through a power supply pin to keep the microcontroller in the power-up status.
