DIY USB Type-C Power Delivery Trigger Board

In this video we will have a closer look at a USB Type-C Power Delivery Trigger board. Such boards are used to output 5V, 9V, 12V, 15V or even 20V from a Power Delivery compatible power source. So I will be showing you how such a commercial board works and I will try to create my own DIY version of it in order to see whether it makes sense to DIY such a board or whether we should stick to the commercial solution instead. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Watch the Video!

Make sure to watch the video. It will give you all the information you need to create your own USB Type-C PD Trigger board. During the next steps though I will give you some additional information.

Step 2: Order Your Components!

Here you can find the schematic for the project which shows you what components you will need for the PCB. You can order them here: https://lcsc.com/

Step 3: Get Your PCBs!

Here you can find the Gerber files for my PCB. Feel free to upload and order them here: https://jlcpcb.com/

Step 4: Do the Wiring and Upload the Code!

Here you can find the wiring diagram for the ESP8266 and the FUSB302 board along with the code provided by Reclaimer Labs.

Step 5: Success!

You did it! You just created your own USB Type-C PD Trigger board!
