Hi,

I have the CCG3PA EVK (CY4532). By default, it is configured as source. In EZ-PD Configuration Utility, I see the "Port Role" set as "Source". I am trying to set the EVK to a sink-only configuration to prototype my application. However, the drop-down menu is greyed out so it won't let me change the option away from "Source".

1. How do I get EZ-PD Configuration Utility to provide the "Sink" option since it is greyed out by default?

2. My sink configuration will request only 1 sink profile when connected to a multiple source PDO device. Will adding a specific "Sink PDO" in EZ-PD Configuration Utility be the solution? Right now, there are no Sink PDO options displayed, but I am assuming it is because the "Port Role" is set to "Source".

Thanks,
Jonathan

Hello Jonathan,

The power role of CCG3PA power adapter could not be changed, but the power bank could be changed to sink only.

Since the CY4532 could also demonstrate as power bank, can you please try the power bank function with changing power role to sink only?

 

Best Regards,

Fred
