EZ-PD™ Barrel Connector Replacement (BCR)

EZ-PD™ Barrel Connector Replacement (BCR) is Cypress’ highly-integrated USB Type-C port controller targeting electronic devices that have legacy barrel connectors (up to 100W) or USB micro-B connectors for power such as drones, smart speakers, power tools, and other rechargeable devices. EZ-PD BCR complies with the latest USB Type-C and USB Power Delivery (PD) standards and enables users to quickly convert their devices from being powered through a barrel connector to being powered via the USB-C connector with few external components and no firmware development is required.

EZ-PD BCR integrates a complete USB Type-C transceiver, USB PD policy manager, a load switch controller with a soft start, all termination resistors required for a USB Type-C port, and system-level ESD protection.

USB Type-C Specification

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 specification allows for fully reversible plugs and enables transport of both USB signals and PCIe or DisplayPort signals on the same connector. The Type-C specification aslo increases the power delivery capability from 7.5 W to 100 W.
