EZ-PD™ CCG2 Type-C Port Controller

New Update: Learn about the new HDMI® over USB-C™ Alternate Mode using Cypress EZ-PD™ solutions

EZ-PD™ CCG2 is Cypress’s second generation USB Type-C controller that complies with the latest USB Type-C and PD standards. EZ-PD™ CCG2 provides a complete solution for passive Electronically Marked Cable Assembly (EMCA) cables, active EMCA cables, USB Type-C Notebooks, Power Adapters, Monitors, Docks and Cable Adapters (dongles). EZ-PD™ CCG2 reduces BOM by integrating a Type-C Transceiver, termination resistors and system level ESD.

EZ-PD™ CCG2 is capable of supporting Upstream Facing Port (UFP), Downstream Facing Port (DFP), and Dual Role Port (DRP). EZ-PD CCG1 andCCG2 USB Power Delivery (PD) controllers have got the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) certification for USB Type-C™. CCG2 has an Arm® Cortex®-M0 with 32KB flash to enable firmware upgrades anytime, anywhere—during product development, on the production line or in the field.

Cypress has reference designs readily available for EMCA and dongle applications. These are available online and could be used to speed-up our customers design cycle.

    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.
