Cypress launches fully integrated USB-C charger solution

Cypress Semiconductor has unveiled the newest member of its USB-C Power Delivery family, the EZ-PD Power Adapter Generation 1 (PAG1) solution.

The PAG1 is a complete AC-DC power solution with an integrated USB Power Delivery (PD) controller that enables OEMs to build reliable, efficient, and cost-effective power adapters for the growing USB-C charger market.

The EZ-PD PAG1 family delivers a two-chip USB-C power solution that integrates the key primary, secondary, and USB PD controller components together. With its advanced features, the PAG1 provides increased reliability, and a reduced bill of materials for OEMs. The PAG1 is fully programmable, enabling OEM designers to easily configure their USB charger solutions to support a number of charging standards including: PD3.0 with PPS, QC4/4+, Apple Charging, QC 3.0/2.0, Samsung AFC, and BC v1.2.

USB-C is the new connectivity standard that can simultaneously power devices as well as transmit data using the same cable and standard reversible connector. USB-C powers devices up to 100W and enables the consolidation of different interfaces on the same port. As more devices are charged with a single charger or power adapter, bulky and multiple proprietary power adapters are no longer needed, which simplifies design and reduces e-waste.

Along with the EZ-PD BCR solution that enables OEMs to easily replace barrel power connectors with USB-C in any electronic product consuming less than 100W, Cypress now provides a complete end-to-end USB Power Delivery solution from the power provider to the power consumer.
