Cypress Introduces New USB Type-C to HDMI/DVI/VGA Adapter Dongle Solution and Industry's Most Robust USB Type-C Development Kit
The Cypress USB Type-C to HDMI/DVI/VGA solution includes USB Billboard functionality, which allows the adapter to communicate status to a host that does not support DisplayPort (DP). This solution uses Cypress's EZ-PD CCG1 (CYPD1120) USB Type-C Port Controller to support DP as one of its Alternate Modes, Cypress's USB Billboard controller (CY7C65210) to support the USB Billboard Device Class, and MegaChips' DP to HDMI/DVI/VGA protocol convertor chip. Cypress has demonstrated that its USB Type-C to HDMI solution with power delivery (PD) is interoperable with the Apple® MacBook®, the Google Chromebook Pixel and multiple other systems at USB-PD Interoperability events.
"With the rapid adoption of USB Type-C, the market is looking for fast ways to bring USB Type-C connectivity to products and for adapter dongles that enable connectivity with older products," said
Cypress customers can pre-order the new CY4501 CCG1 DVK online from the Cypress store. Based on Cypress's EZ-PD CCG1 USB Type-C Port Controller, the kit serves as a platform to evaluate several features for USB Type-C with design examples and demonstrations of USB SuperSpeed, DisplayPort and Power Delivery. The CY4501 CCG1 DVK includes a CCG1 host board that emulates a tablet or a notebook, a CCG1 client board that emulates a monitor or a docking port, and a
The USB Type-C standard is gaining rapid support with top-tier PC makers by enabling slim industrial designs, easy-to-use connectors and cables, the ability to transmit multiple protocols, and 100W power delivery (PD)—a significant improvement over the previous 7.5W standard. The USB Type-C standard's 2.4-mm-high connector plug is significantly smaller than current 4.5-mm USB Type-A standard connectors. It also allows for transport of USB signals and PCIe or DP signals on the same connector. A CCG1 product video, which demonstrates the transmission of DisplayPort signals over a USB Type-C connection, is available at www.cypress.com/ccg1video.
The CYPD1120 device is available in a 35-ball CSP and 40-pin QFN package, while the CY7C65210 device is available in a 24-pin QFN package. Both CYPD1120 and CY7C65210 are sampling now and will be in production in
