The USB Type-CTM connector has revolutionized the wired connectivity world. It allows full featured systems to be capable of one single port of connection for SuperSpeed+ data transfers, high power (up to 100W per port), and graphics capability all through one single standard cable. Some cost sensitive products and applications value the smaller form factor and reversibility features of the USB Type-CTM connector, but do not necessarily care about other features like high power or graphics delivery. Instead, they prefer to implement the USB Type-CTM connector in their products at the lowest possible cost.
The UTC2000 is a basic USB Type-CTM controller that can be designed-in to any existing product to upgrade to USB Type-CTM.

This includes enabling the port power controller to provide or sink the USB Type-CTM power profiles, enabling USB2.0/3.x data systems, as well as switching the USB Type-CTM port depending upon which direction the cable is plugged in. The UTC2000 is offerred in an extremely small package size, and is provided in consumer, industrial and extended temperature versions. Automotive qualified version is also available.
