This specification is intended as an extension to the existing [USB 2.0], [USB 3.1], [USB Type-C 1.2] and [USBBC 1.2] specifications. It addresses only the elements required to implement USB Power Delivery. It is targeted at power supply vendors, manufacturers of [USB 2.0], [USB 3.1], [USB Type-C 1.2] and [USBBC 1.2] Platforms, Devices and cable assemblies. Normative information is provided to allow interoperability of components designed to this specification. Informative information, when provided, may illustrate possible design implementation.
Part 1-3: This specification is intended as a supplement to the existing USB 2.0, USB 3.1 and USB Power Delivery specifications. It addresses only the elements required to implement and support the USB Type-C receptacles, plugs and cables. Normative information is provided to allow interoperability of components designed to this specification. Informative information, when provided, may illustrate possible design implementations.
Part 1-4: This specification defines the architecture and methodology for unilateral Product Authentication. It is intended to be fully compatible with and extend existing PD and USB infrastructure. Information is provided to allow for Policy enforcement, but individual Policy decisions are not specified. The Authentication of USB Type-C products that support Alternate Modes is allowed. However, the methods to do so are outside the scope of this specification.
Part 3-1: The specification is primarily targeted at peripheral developers and platform/adapter developers, but provides valuable information for platform operating system/BIOS/device driver, adapter IHVs/ISVs, and system OEMs. This specification can be used for developing new products and associated software. Product developers using this specification are expected to know and understand the USB 2.0 Specification. Specifically, USB 3.1 devices must implement device framework commands and descriptors as defined in the USB 2.0 Specification. Devices operating at the new 10 Gbps (Gen 2) speed must implement the SuperSpeedPlus enhancements defined in this version of the specification.
Part 1-5: The Audio Device Class Definition applies to all devices or functions embedded in composite devices that are used to manipulate audio, voice, and sound-related functionality. This includes both audio data (analog and digital) and the functionality that is used to directly control the audio environment, such as Volume and Tone Control. The Audio Device Class does not include functionality to operate transport mechanisms that are related to the reproduction of audio data, such as tape transport mechanisms or CD-ROM drive control.
Part 1-6: The USB Audio Device Class Definition for Basic Audio Functions applies to all USB Audio Functions that are based on the Universal Serial Bus Device Class Definition for Audio Devices Release 3.0. It defines baseline audio functionality for all ADC 3.0 compliant Hosts and Devices.
Part 1-7: The intention of this document is to describe in detail all the Audio Data Formats that are supported by the Audio Device Class. This document is considered an integral part of the Audio Device Class Specification, although subsequent revisions of this document are independent of the revision evolution of the main USB Audio Specification. This is to easily accommodate the addition of new Audio Data Formats without impeding the core USB Audio Specification.
Part 1-8: The Audio Device Class Definition applies to all devices or functions embedded in composite devices. All audio signals inside an audio function start at an Input Terminal, pass through some Units, and leave the function through an Output Terminal. Units can manipulate the signal in various ways. Terminals represent the connections of the function to the outside world. As part of the Terminal descriptor, the wTerminalType field specifies the vendor’s suggested use of the Terminal. For example, a pair of speakers is a more suitable target for music output than a telephone line. This feature allows a vendor to ensure that applications use the device in a consistent and meaningful way.
