The EZ-PDTM CCG3 Power Bank reference design has a portable external battery which stores charge when connected to a charger and later delivers charge to an attached device. This solution has a USB Type-C receptacle which acts as a power source or sink and a legacy USB Type-A receptacle which acts as a power source.


The main features of this solution are:

  • USB Type-C port acting as a source and sink supporting USB Power Delivery spec 3.0
  • USB Type-A port acting as source supporting legacy charging protocols: BC v1.2, Quick Charge 3.0
  • Provides up to 18W (12V@1.5A, 9V@2A, 5V@3A) on the Type-C port
  • Supports 1-Cell battery configuration
  • Supports firmware upgrade for CCG3: CC/USB

The CCG3 fully supports the latest Power Delivery 3.0 specification. The CCG3 integrates USB Type-C, USB Power Delivery, Over Voltage and Over Current protection, and high-voltage regulator reducing the BOM cost.  CCG3 device is available in 40-QFN package. Other major components in the design are MPS's MP2636 (Single Cell Battery Charger) and MP9184A (Boost Convertor).

Cypress has developed a reference schematic to enable customer to speed up their design and development cycle time. This reference design was developed using custom Li-Ion 18650 Battery: 3.6V 18.2Ah (66wh, 7A rate, 7S/S, ICR18650B4). Further battery details can be found here. The board hardware design files (schematic, bill of material, layout, etc) are available below.
