Raspberry Pi 4 Defective USB-C Design Investigation

Image result for Computer Board

Migliaccio and Rathod LLP is currently investigating the recently released Raspberry Pi 4 due to its faulty USB-C design. This single board computer is designed to use a USB-C port for power delivery, however Raspberry Pi came up with its own circuit design that is not compliant and breaks compatibility with some of the more powerful USB-C chargers available on the market. E-marked USB cables, which negotiate power management, accessory modes, data rates, and other communication specs, detect the Raspberry Pi 4 as an audio adapter accessory and therefore will not charge the device. Users therefore can only use non E-Marked cables to charge the computer.
