Ny effektiv USB-C laderløsning til power-adaptorer
Cypress lancerer programmerbar fuldt integreret USB-C laderløsning, der bl.a. udmærker sig ved højere pålidelighed og effektivitet (in english).Cypress Semiconductor has announced 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.
Cypress is the market leader in USB-C technology, and its EZ-PD PAG1 family continues Cypress’ leadership by delivering 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 best-in-class efficiency, 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.
- With EZ-PD PAG1, Cypress now offers a fully integrated power adapter solution including AC-DC and USB-C components, expanding our leadership position while offering increased value to our customers, says Ajay Srikrishna, vice president of Cypress' Wired Connectivity Business Unit.
- With our continued focus on our customers, the highly integrated PAG1 family was built in response to the need for a robust USB Power Delivery solution with class-leading performance.
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.
- With the versatility and benefits USB-C brings to the market, IHS Markit anticipates the number of devices having at least one USB-C port to increase at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 70 percent, growing from 300 million devices in 2016 to just under 5 billion devices in 2021, says Noman Akhtar, research analyst, Industrial Semiconductors and Sensors, IHS Markit.
- USB Type-C is an advanced wired interface technology and will modernize many consumer electronic segments with its fast-charging capabilities as well as the ability to simultaneously transfer data across numerous devices.
