EZ-PD™ CCG4: Two-Port USB Type-C Controller with Power Delivery

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

EZ-PD™ CCG4 is Cypress’s newest USB Type-C port controller with Power Delivery. CCG4 provides a two-port USB-C solution ideal for Desktops, Notebooks and Systems like Power Banks, Monitors and Docks. CCG4 is based on Cypress’s PSoC technology with 128KB flash memory supporting fail-safe boot up. CCG4 supports Upstream Facing Port (UFP), Downstream Facing Port (DFP), and Dual Role Port (DRP) modes. CCG4 reduces BOM by integrating four 1W VCONN FETs, Over-Voltage and Over-Current Protection and 15kV system level ESD protection.  

Cypress has USB Type-C and Power Delivery reference designs available for various applications. These are available online and can be used to speed up the 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.
