EZ-PD™ CCG6: One-Port USB Type-C and Power Delivery

EZ-PD™ CCG6 is Cypress’ one-port USB Type-C™ and Power Delivery controller targeting PCs and Notebooks. CCG6 integrates a VBUS provider path load switch controller along with USB authentication support, VBUS-to-CC short protection, VBUS-to-SBU short protection, 20V-VBUS regulator, high-voltage PFET gate drivers, SBU and USB HS mux, VBUS Over-Voltage and Over-Current Protection, and ESD protection.

CCG6 supports Downstream Facing Port (DFP), Upstream Facing Port (UFP), and Dual Role Port (DRP) and will fully support the Power Delivery 3.0 specification. CCG6 is a programmable solution with 128KB flash supporting fail-safe boot up and firmware upgrade.

Cypress has USB Type-C and Power Delivery reference designs readily available online for various applications, which can be used to shorten design cycle times.

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.
