The growing popularity of standard USB PD3.0 chargers for mobile phones and notebook PCs spurs demand to leverage standard PD3.0 chargers, replacing purposely and individually built chargers for battery power electronic devices and reducing E-Waste. Equipped with USB Type-C® connectors and enabled by USB PD3.0 sink controllers, these new classes of Type-C PD devices (TCD) easily obtain necessary power from any USB PD3.0 compliance chargers and adaptors through a Type-C cable.
Extending our wide range of USB PD3.0 protocol controllers and charger solutions for energy sources, Diodes Incorporated (Diodes) has just released a new pair of USB PD3.0 sink controllers: the AP33771 and AP33772 (I2C). These new products address the need for ease of adoption as well as for fulfilling sophisticated and flexible system integration where a host MCU is available for various housing-keeping tasks.
