EZ-PD™ CCG3 is Cypress’s newest USB Type-C port controller with Power Delivery. CCG3 provides a complete solution ideal for Power Adapters, Power Banks, Type-C Dongles, Thunderbolt Accessories, Monitors, Docks and Notebooks. EZ-PD CCG3 reduces BOM by integrating a Billboard Controller, Crypto engine, OVP and OCP, dual 64KB flash memory, and 2:2 cross-bar switch.

CCG3 is capable of supporting Upstream Facing Port (UFP), Downstream Facing Port (DFP), and Dual Role Port (DRP) and will fully support the latest Power Delivery 3.0 specification. CCG3 is a programmable solution, and its dual 64KB flash memory can be used for fail-safe firmware upgrades at any time. CCG3 has direct 20-V operation including VBUS gate drivers, high-voltage regulator and OVP/OCP.

Cypress has USB Type-C and Power Delivery reference designs readily available for various applications. These are available online and can be used to speed up the design cycle.

USB Type-C Specification

USB Type-C is the new USB-IF standard that solves several challenges faced by today's Type-A and Type-B cables and connectors. USB Type-C uses a slimmer connector (measuring only 2.4-mm in height) to allow for increasing miniaturization of consumer and industrial products. The specification allows for fully reversible plugs and enables transport of both USB signals and PCIe or DisplayPort signals on the same connector. The Type-C specification aslo increases the power delivery capability from 7.5 W to 100 W.
