Is there a way to force either of the USB-C ports to output 5V, exactly the same as the USB-Type A port does?
I have a serial radio which I would like to power from the last free port on the Xavier (which is either of the USB-Type C ports). The radio has a simple 5.5mmx2.1mm 5V DC barrel jack connector to power it, so I have bought a USB-C to Barrel Jack cable. However, when I measure the voltage on the Barrel jack it’s outputting around 1V, and after a bit of research on USB-Type C ports, I have found they have separate lines for determining the power output. When I plug that cable into a USB-A port (via an adaptor), I immediately measure 5V.
Since the barrel jack is just providing power and there are no communication lines, I assume the USB controller is saving power and not outputting anything. Is there a way I can make it act like a USB-A port, which always outputs that minimum voltage?
