CY4532 EZ-PD™ CCG3PA Evaluation Kit

Last Updated:

The CY4532 EZ-PD™ CCG3PA Evaluation Kit (EVK) is based on the CCG3PA product family of Cypress’s USB Type-C microcontrollers. This EVK is intended to be an evaluation vehicle for USB Type-C Power Adapter (PA), USB Type-C mobile charger and USB Type-C Power Bank (PB) applications. The kit can be configured for the PA or PB application using a combination of firmware, jumper settings on the kit hardware, and external accessories. The following paragraphs provide a brief description of both applications:

  • USB Type-C Power Adapter (PA): To charge a device such as a mobile phone or notebook which supports battery charging through the Type-C interface. The device can be connected to the Type-C port of the CY4532 EVK’s Main Board to be charged as per the USB PD protocol. This application requires a DC input to be supplied to the EVK. The EVK also supports charging through a USB Type-A port to enable the battery charging of legacy devices. The CY4532 EVK supports Battery Charging (BC) 1.2, Qualcomm Quick Charger (QC) 3.0,  Apple 2.4A charging and Samsung Adaptive Fast Charging (AFC) charging protocols .
  • USB Type-C Power Bank (PB): This application is similar to the PA application. Here, a Lithium-ion battery which is connected to the CY4532 EVK acts as the power source to support charging on the USB Type-C and USB Type-A ports. In addition, the Lithium-ion battery can be charged using a USB Type-C Power Adapter connected to the USB Type-C port of the EVK’s Main Board.
