Last Updated: 
Apr 13, 2018

Products Supported: CCG2, CCG3, CCG4, CCG3PA, CCG5

Cypress provides the EZ-PD™ CCGx Software Development Kit (SDK) which facilitates the development of a variety of solutions using CCGx power delivery controllers. The SDK includes a USB Type-C and USB-PD specification compliant firmware stack, reference firmware applications and documentation.

The EZ-PD CCGx SDK is based on Cypress’s widely used IDE – PSoC Creator – and makes use of the free GNU Arm tools that are packaged with PSoC Creator. The reference firmware is provided in the form of workspaces that can be opened using PSoC Creator and modified to meet the target hardware design.

On this page below there are two CCGx SDK installer packages.

CCGx SDK v3.0.2 (Sept 15, 2017) : CCG2, CCG3, CCG4

  • EZ-PD CCGx SDK Installer: This is the complete SDK installer which includes PSoC Creator 3.3 DP1, EZ-PD Configuration Utility and the EZ-PD CCGx SDK.
  • EZ-PD CCGx SDK Installer iso: This is the complete SDK installer in .iso format.
  • EZ-PD CCGx SDK Only: This is an installer which contains only the firmware library, examples and documentation. PSoC Creator and EZ-PD Configuration Utility will need to be downloaded and installed separately.

Note: SDK v3.0.2 is compatible and tested with only PSoC Creator 3.3 DP1. It is not guaranteed to build and compile on later versions of PSoC Creator 4.x. PSoC Creator 3.3DP1 can be co-installed in the same PC that has versions of PSoC Creator 4.x. In such systems, SDK v3.0.2 projects must be opened from PSoC Creator 3.3 DP1 and should not be opened by double clicking the project within Windows explorer. This is because opening any PSoC Creator project from Windows explorer, will open it in the latest version of installed PSoC Creator.  

CCG5 SDK v3.1.1 (March 28, 2018):  CCG5 only

  • EZ-PD CCG5 SDK Installer: This is the complete SDK installer which includes PSoC Creator 4.1 Update 1, EZ-PD Configuration Utility and the EZ-PD CCG5 SDK.
  • EZ-PD CCG5 SDK Installer iso: This is the complete SDK installer in .iso format.
  • EZ-PD CCG5 SDK Only: This is an installer which contains only the firmware library, examples and documentation. PSoC Creator and EZ-PD Configuration Utility will need to be downloaded and installed separately.
