I'm using the CYPD3177 BCR Kit. I experience different behaviour of the DC_OUT port (controlled by P-MOSFET / VBUS_FET_EN) when I'm either using a PD capable source (PDO 5V 1A) or a 'simple' Type-C source (10k pull-ups on CC lines to 5V -> 5V 3A). I can read the PD_STATUS and the TYPE-C_STATUS registers via I2C. As far as I can tell the port controller detects the type-c source correctly (port is connected, source is attached, Rp of partner device suggests current level 3A, etc.).
With the Type-C source the P-MOSFET is activated rather late. We are talking about approx. 3.5 seconds between making a connection and enabling the output.
With the PD capable source the output is at 5V rather quick (< 1s).
What are the conditions for the CYPD3177 port controller to activate the MOSFET / the power output?
Is there a difference in decision making or with the timings based on the power source?
