Does anyone know if the 2nd generation of the Intel Compute Stick supports any of the Power Delivery standards to provide power through a USB type C hub with Ethernet? I would like to use a USB-C hub in between the power supply and USB-C port. So far, the Compute Stick will not power up and this does not bode well for my application.
Any help would be appeciated.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, I understand you are trying to connect USB Type C hub with Ethernet on this Intel® Compute stick. Let me help you on this matter.
In regard to power, the Intel® Compute stick STK2mv64CC uses a 5V 4A AC to DC power adapter with a built in 2-port USB 3.0 Hub. My suggestion would be to check power specifications for the adapter.
I see an USB 2.0 hub with Ethernet adapter that was reported as tested by some customers with your Intel® Compute stick model. See this http://compatibleproducts.intel.com/ProductDetails/ExportPeripheralInfo?moduleName=Intel%C2%AE%20Com... link
Hope it helps.
Not the cheapest solution, but I think this is what you are looking for (I don't have one to test).

Note: It uses it's own power supply, not the one that came with the ComputeStick.
Thanks for the replies.
So, I currently have bought a Startech.com https://www.startech.com/Networking-IO/usb-network-adapters/usb-c-gigabit-adapter~US1GC303APD US1GC303APD USB hub with PD. The device supplies up to 60W of power through the unit to provide power to laptops and other devices. Problem is the power does not flow through the unit into the ComputeStick like it is designed to do and I am not sure why this is happening. I was hoping that it was something I was doing wrong but it looks like hub provides the right power levels but maybe not the correct voltage.
I checked the specs and it seems this unit uses the Intel Compute Stick power supply. In the data sheet provided by Intel I can not find any specification about the power delivery version.

I hope someone from Intel can verify what power delivery version this Compute Stick uses.
Thank you for your input on this thread. The power specifications for the Intel® Compute stick is the same as I posted previously, that would be the only information I was able to find for power output.
It might be that the power adapter of the Intel® Compute stick as you mentioned does not provide enough juice for both devices.
