USB Power Delivery Controller IC (USB PD Controller IC)
The USB PD controller ICs can meet the USB Type-C Connector and the USB Power Delivery Standards.
Our ICs for USB PD include oscillators, high-voltage LDO regulators, detections/protections against overvoltage, overcurrent and thermal abnormality, etc., and therefore enable constructing USB power delivery systems with a few external components.
Thanks to the logic circuits for electric negotiation of USB power delivery, our devices can efficiently supply and receive power meeting the USB Power Delivery Standards in a stand-alone state without an MCU.
USB Type-C is a standard for connectors determined by USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF).
It features the laterally and vertically symmetrical connector shape equipped in both of the host and the device.
The reversible shape lets us use the connector without considering inserting orientation.
Compared to USB 3.0 which corresponded to power delivery up to 4.5 W, current USB PD has increased the capability of delivering power up to 100 W.
The enhanced capability enables the USB PD to supply a large current enough to drive various ambient devices like tablets, laptop PCs, displays, etc.
