TI drives toward a one-cable world with the first integrated USB Type-C Power Delivery controller in volume production

Bangalore, July 28, 2015 :Texas Instruments today introduced the first all-in-one
USB Type-C and USB Power Delivery (PD) controller, which integrates a port power
switch and port data multiplexer. The TPS65982 USB PD controller is the only integrated circuit (IC) available that provides the full power path, operating as a Single- or Dual-Role Port and enabling a variety of host and device power implementations.

For applications requiring higher data rates, the TPS65982 can be combined with the 5.4-Gbps HD3SS460, the industry’s first USB Type-C cross-point switch. This solution enables USB connectors on either end of the cable to be flipped up or down, delivers power up to 100 W, and supports Alternate Modes to distribute video over DisplayPort from the host to the end device.

For USB Type-C systems requiring up to 15 W of power, engineers can choose the
TUSB320 family, the industry’s first devices to provide USB Type-C configuration channel (CC) logic and port control. These devices make it possible for a system to detect the orientation of the plug, and determine the appropriate USB specification and mode settings for the end equipment.

One cable to replace many
The USB (Universal Serial Bus) interface standard is popular in smartphones and
other personal electronics, as well as computers and peripherals such as printers.
Using TI’s new USB Type-C products, designers can deliver end equipment that frees
consumers from needing multiple cables for various types of USB ports. Each of the
new TI devices meets USB Type-C Specification 1.1 (Engineering Change Notice as of
June 22, 2015) published by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF), of which TI is a
long-standing participant. TI has a more than 20-year track record of providing
high-performance USB-compliant products.

TI delivers the most complete host and peripheral solutions, with the performance
and tools to bring USB Type-C products to market faster.

Key features and benefits of TI’s new USB Type-C devices

· Single USB PD controller delivers power and data in multiple modes: The
TPS65982 integrated PD controller and power switch delivers both power and data in
several Alternate Modes. The TPS65982 can operate as a Single- or Dual-Role Port
(DRP) for power and can be configured to support data as a downstream-facing port
(DFP); an upstream-facing port (UFP); or as both host and device, known as a DRP.
· SuperSpeed switch transfers video data at low power: The HD3SS460 USB
Type-C cross-point switch can support data rates up to 5.4 Gbps while offering
standby power of 40 µW – more than 50 percent lower than competitive offerings – to
extend battery life.

· USB Type-C CC logic: The TUSB320 family supports USB 2.0, USB 3.1 and
VCONN, giving designers the flexibility to use these devices in multiple USB-enabled
designs. Its low shutdown power of 8 mW benefits a variety of battery-powered
