Cypress Showcases PD Solutions and More at USB-PD Asia 2019
Cypress Semiconductor, one of the leaders in USB-C technology, showcased its solutions for USB-PD, wireless charging, and expansion docks at 2019 (Autumn) USB PD & Type-C Asia Expo in Shenzhen.
Gary Yuan, Regional Market Manager, gave us a little tour to the Cypress' product portfolio after delivering his speech on the company's PAG1 power solution at our seminar. He first introduced us to Cypress' BCR (Barrel Connector Replacement) solution which targets electronic devices that have legacy barrel connectors (up to 100W) and enables users to quickly convert their devices from being powered through a barrel connector to being powered via the USB-C connector.
Next, Gary demonstrated the company's PAG1 power solution. It is a complete AC-DC power solution with an integrated USB Power Delivery (PD) controller that enables OEMs to build reliable, efficient, and cost-effective power adapters for the growing USB-C charger market. PAG1 is offered as a two-chip solution with a primary start-up controller (PAG1P) and a single-chip secondary-side controller (PAG1S) that integrates a synchronous rectification driver, PD controller, 30-V-tolerant regulator, high-voltage NFET gate drivers, OVP, SCP, and OCP protection. PAG1 is a secondary-side-controlled flyback solution that supports dynamically variable switching frequency thereby providing best-in-class efficiency and better reliability.
Lastly, Gary showcased Cypress' PD chips for high wattage wireless charging solutions which were already adopted by Huawei and Xiaomi. And a sophisticated expansion dock that fully populated with ports.
