The USB-IF has secured the convenience and performance of USB for years to come with the updated USB Type-C—also known as USB-C®—connector. This symmetrical and reversible 24-pin interconnect can support blazingly
fast data transfer rates of up to 20 Gbps and 100W of continuous power flow as well as providing high-bandwidth video, all through a single connection to meet the expanding needs of new electronic equipment in the coming years.
Prior to the introduction of USB Type-C and USB Power Delivery, data and power roles were typically fixed. The shape of the receptacle largely dictated the data and power roles. Developed as a flexible and universal connector solution, the USB-C connector
maintains a consistent plug and port configuration to address the space and ergonomic needs of a wide range of computing, display and charging applications. In addition to the physical elements of the USB-C connector, new capabilities are also
part of this evolution, specifically USB Power Delivery (PD) and Alternate Modes. The current USB PD specification provides for the capability to deliver as much as 100W per port, and Alternate Modes allows the pins of the connector to be purposed
to other specifications, such as DisplayPort and HDMI.
We offer a portfolio of flexible, cost-effective and low-risk USB Type-C Power Delivery controllers that enable you to transform the user experience for your product.
