USB-C® Power Delivery Controllers

Initially developed as a data interface, the ubiquitous and interoperable USB port has evolved to become the primary connector for charging mobile electronic devices. To further enhance the functionality of this port, the USB Type-C® standard enables a single cable to support USB 3.1 data transfer speeds, up to 100W of power for device charging and Alternative Modes (Alt Modes) for transmitting graphics and video signals.

Our flexible, cost-effective and low-risk USB-C solutions can be combined with our USB hubs and Embedded Controllers (ECs) to offer a complete Power Delivery (PD) solution for notebook and desktop computers, monitors, docking stations, smartphones, tablets, HDTVs, printers, point-of-sale terminals, automotive breakout boxes and other applications.
