I’m trying to figure out the cheapest and simplest, Open Hardware-respecting, way to extend the USB 3/USB C interface on the BeagleBone AI, internally with a small hub or board.

Of course, I need to also make sure I can use USB C to power the BeagleBone AI board.
Any advice would be appreciated.
I’m currently looking at these as potential solutions, and I will need these for in bulk/wholesale for an upcoming product:
