With this USB-C breakout, you will be able to incorporate a vertical USB-C connector into your projects without needing to solder each tiny SMD pad. The vertical orientation of the USB-C connector also makes it convenient for panel mounts in projects.
The SparkFun USB-C Breakout supplies up to three times the power as our previous USB breakouts (i.e., Type-A, micro-B, and mini-B). Also, it solves the universally frustrating dilemma of plugging a USB cable in correctly because it's reversible! The board breaks out the USB-C connector's
SHLD pins into a 0.1" pitch header while providing up to a nominal 1.5A of power and up to 3A depending on the upstream device.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.
