USB Type C Interface ESD Protection

1. USB 3.x

In the USB 3.x mode, two or four high speed links are used in TX/RX pairs to provide 5 to 20 Gbps throughput. One of the CC pins is used to negotiate the mode. VDD and GND provide 5 V up to 900 mA, in accordance with the USB 3.1 specification. A specific USB-C mode may also be entered, where 5 V up to 3 A is provided.

2. USB Power Delivery

USB Power Delivery uses the CC pins for power selection, up to 20 V and up to 5 A (or whatever less the source can provide). It is transparent to any data transmission mode and can therefore be used together with any of them.
