Create Smaller, More Power-Efficient USB-C and USB Power Delivery Designs

Thanks to USB-C and USB power delivery, compact electronic devices can now be fed by a small, single, bidirectional cable that delivers data, video, and power. Although USB Type-C and USB power delivery are making electronic devices easier to manage for end users, complying with the protocol can involve multiple hardware components, complex software, as well as custom firmware development.

Our extensive portfolio of ICs for USB-C and USB power delivery designs provides high levels of integration and flexibility that engineers need to create compact, power-efficient electronics compatible with bidirectional data and power delivery requirements. Our portfolio includes chargers, converters, controllers, as well as power path and protection devices. that:

  • Enable simple, robust, and flexible designs
  • Reduce BOM costs and solution size
  • Decrease development time
