Dallas, Tex. – Texas Instruments (TI) claimed the first all-in-one USB Type-C and USB Power Delivery (PD) controller, which integrates a port power switch and port data multiplexer. TI said the TPS65982 USB PD controller is the only integrated circuit (IC) available that provides the full power path, operating as a single- or dual-role port and enabling a variety of host and device power implementations.
For applications requiring higher data rates, the TPS65982 can be combined with the 5.4-Gbps HD3SS460, claimed as the industry’s first USB Type-C cross-point switch. Key features: USB connectors on either end of the cable that can be flipped up or down, power up to 100 W, and Alternate Modes to distribute video over DisplayPort from the host to the end device.
The TUSB320 family targets USB Type-C systems requiring up to 15 W of power, and is said to be the industry’s first devices to provide USB Type-C configuration channel (CC) logic and port control. These devices make it possible for a system to detect the orientation of the plug, and determine the appropriate USB specification and mode settings for the end equipment, said TI.
All new devices meets USB Type-C Specification 1.1 (Engineering Change Notice as of June 22, 2015) published by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF). A USB Type-C Dock reference design (TIDA-00630) is available.
Availability: The TPS65982 is available in a 6- x -6-mm MicroStar Junior ball-grid array (BGA); the HD3SS460 is available in a 3.5- x -5.5-mm quad flat no-lead (QFN) package and the TUSB320 is available in a 1.6- x -1.6-mm QFN package.
Pricing: The TPS65982 is priced at $4.99; the HD3SS460 at $1.55 and the TUSB320 at $0.95. All pricing is in quantities of 1,000. Evaluation modules (EVMs) are available including the TPS65982-EVM (includes BoosterPack pin standard for TI’s LaunchPad ecosystem) for $29, the HD3SS460EVM-SRC for $149 and the TUSB320EVM for $99. These tools are available from the TI store and authorized distributors.
