SLASEP7 May 2020 TMUXHS4212
The TMUXHS4212 can be used in USB Type-C implementation to mux USB 3.2 superspeed signals (TX1, RX1 pairs versus TX2, RX2 pairs) to accommodate plug flips. In typical use cases, the mux selection is done by a USB Type-C Channel Configuration (CC) or Power Delivery (PD) controller. The device can used on a USB Type-C DFP, UFP or DRP port. The two USB Type-C connector applications show both a host and device side. The cable between the two connectors swivels the pairs to properly route the signals to the correct pin. The other applications are more generic because different connectors can be used.
