Southchip Demonstrates Third Generation Buck-Booster ICs and More at USB-PD Asia 2019
Southchip, the company famous for its high-performance buck-boost power converters which entered supply chains of Samsung and Huawei, demonstrated its latest buck-booster ICs, USB-PD protocol chips, and wireless charging solutions at 2019 (Autumn) USB PD & Type-C Asia Expo in Shenzhen, China.
Karen Deng, Vice President of System Applications at Southchip, gave us a little tour to the company's product portfolio. Southship introduced the third-generation buck-boost architecture charger and DC-DC chips this year, further enriching the buck-boost architecture. The third-generation buck-boost chargers (SC8905 and SC8905) and DC-DC switching regulators (SC8720, SC8721, SC8101, SC8329, and SC8328) are enabling the full integration of power tubes with ultra-low resistance load and up to 98% conversion efficiency for 30W power applications, which can significantly reduce heat dissipation. Furthermore, the I2C version and the Standalone version are also available.
USB-PD protocol chips are relatively new in Southchip's product lines. However, based on the expertise in power management IC design and deep understanding of high-voltage and high-speed semiconductor processes, the brand new SC2001 USB-PD solution successfully passed the USB-IF PD 3.0 certification. The SC2001 supports up to five output ports and integrates multiple fast charge protocols such as PD2.0, PD3.0, PPS, BC1.2, AFC, FCP, SCP, VOOC, and SUPER VOOC, with a rated voltage of 30V and multiple built-in protection, including OVP, OCP, UVP, and SCP to ensure safe operation of the system. At the same time, the SC2001 integrates a gate driver, a 10-bit ADC, and a high-precision amplifier to minimize the number of components. It is suitable for applications including chargers, multi-port chargers, car chargers, power banks, and other cases.
Last but not least, Karen also showed us the company's wireless charging power bank solution which is based on Southchip's SC2003, SC8933, and SC5001 ICs.
In closing, Karen mentioned that Chongdiantou.com and ChargerLAB.com have built a platform for vendors, customers, and readers to communicate quickly and freely.
