Cypress Introduces Automotive-Grade USB-C Controller for Fast Device Charging in Cars
Programmable, Integrated Controller Enables Easy implementation of USB-C and Power Delivery Ports
"The adoption of USB-C Power Delivery in cars is driven by the increased
need for faster charging of mobile devices," said
The EZ-PD CCG2 controller is the smallest footprint, full-featured PD controller that supports downstream facing port (DFP) and upstream facing port (UFP) applications. The robust controller has found widespread consumer adoption in PCs, mobile devices, chargers and electronically-marked cables. The programmable controller integrates an Arm® Cortex®-M0 core and 32KB Flash with read-while-write functionality for firmware upgradability, which enables users to keep up with changes to the USB Type-C standard and overcome interoperability issues as the standard continues to evolve.
The USB Type-C standard is gaining rapid support with top-tier automotive electronics manufacturers and enabling slim designs, easy-to-use connectors and cables, and the ability to transmit multiple protocols and deliver up to 100W of power. The USB Type-C standard's 2.4-mm-high connector plug is significantly smaller than the current 4.5-mm USB Standard-A connector.
Cypress is demonstrating its USB-C and USB-PD portfolio, along with its
complete embedded systems solution portfolio, at the
The automotive EZ-PD CCG2 controller is now sampling in a 24-QFN (4x4 mm) package. The controller will be in production in the second quarter of 2018. More information on Cypress' USB Type-C and PD solutions is available at www.cypress.com/Type-C.
