Clarification of type-c superspeed device mode
Hi everyone,

The Rock64Pro looks like it would make for a perfect home made nbase-t usb3 adapter, assuming that the type-c port can operate in peripheral superspeed mode. Some parts of the website indicate that the type-c port has otg support in which case I think it would be the Rock64pro would be able to behave as usb device for another computer. Also it is unclear whether the usb-c port operates in superspeed mode as either a host or a peripheral. Can someone confirm that it will behave as a superspeed peripheral?

Assuming that it can act as a superspeed type-c peripheral, then it may be possible to install an 10Gbe ethernet card into the x4 slot and turn the whole thing into a 10Gbe type-c ethernet adapter. 

Does anyone see any obvious obstacles to this idea?
