USB Type-C and Power Delivery

USB Type-C is the new USB-IF standard that solves several challenges faced by today's Type-A and Type-B cables and connectors. USB Type-C uses a slimmer connector (measuring only 2.4-mm in height) to allow for increasing miniaturization of consumer and industrial products. The USB Type-C standard is gaining rapid support by enabling small form-factor, easy-to-use connectors and cables with the ability to transmit multiple protocols and offer power delivery up to 100 W – a significant improvement over the 7.5 W for previous standards.

USB Type-C Highlights

  • Brand new reversible connector, measuring only 2.4-mm in height
  • Compliant with USB Power Delivery 2.0, providing up to 100 W
  • Double the bandwidth of USB 3.0, increasing to 10 Gbps with SuperSpeed+ USB3.1
  • Combines multiple protocols in a single cable, including DisplayPort™, PCIe® or Thunderbolt™

For more information on Type-C technology and its applications, please watch the training video available here. This training video explains the technological advances introduced with the new USB IF’s Type-C Specification. It also shows how USB-Type-C can be designed into practical products. The four applications covered in this video are: host design, cable design, peripheral design and power adapter design. Working prototype of Reference Designs are presented for each application area along with design and debug tools.

Cypress’s EZ-PD™ Type-C Controllers are based on Cypress’s PSoC® 4 programmable system-on-chip architecture, which includes programmable analog and digital blocks, an ARM® Cortex®-M0 core and 32 KB of flash memory. This product family is driving the industry’s first Type-C products with top-tier PC makers, enabling them to bring these USB Type-C benefits to market. Cypress has reference designs readily available for for EMCA, dongle, power adapter, monitor/dock, power bank, and other applications. These are available online here and could be used to speed-up our customers design cycle.

USB 3.1 Gen1

With constant innovation and technological advancements, the need for faster data transfer has never been greater. The USB Implementers forum aiming to provide a ubiquitous standard to solve these issues, introduced the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 standard in November, 2008.

In applications such as image and video transfer, printers and scanners, handheld devices, and storages, where large amounts of data is created/consumed or needs to be processed, data transfer or offloading onto another source (mostly onto a PC because of its superior processing capabilities), needs to happen quickly. USB 3.0 provides 5 Gbps speed to these devices to achieve this feat.
