The USB-UART LP Bridge Controller is the latest addition to Cypress’s family of Full-Speed USB Controllers. The CY7C65213 controller provides a single USB-to-UART channel, with industry’s lowest power consumption in stand-by mode (5 uA).

The CY7C65213 controller integrates Battery Charging Detection logic compliant to USB-IF Battery Charging specification ver. 1.2 (to detect the source of power on the USB port). The controller features up to 8 pins for GPIO and is available in 32-pin QFN package. The controller is USB-IF certified with TID# 40860041.

The USB-UART LP Bridge Controller is ideal for applications such as portable medical devices (like blood-glucose meters), point-of-sales terminals, Serial Cables (including USB-to-UART and RS232 cables) and many other applications requiring USB connectivity.

CYUSBS232 kit contains:

  1. CYUSBS232 PCB assembly
  2. Quick start guide
  3. USB Micro-B cable
  4. Jumper wires
  5. Samples of CY7C65213

Software Downloads and Installation: The software for the CYUSBS232 RDK is available in two formats:
