18W USB-C Power Adapter Reference Design using PAG1S and PAG1P (PAG1 Solution)

Last Updated:

The 18W Power Adapter Reference Design Board is built using Cypress’ (Now an Infineon Company) PAG1S and PAG1P controllers. The solution meets the global efficiency standards including DoE Level VI/ CoC Tier 2 and passes the IEC safety standards. The solution is targeted for USB PD (including PPS), QC power adapters. It can also support adapters that require legacy charging including Apple charging, BC1.2, QC 3.0 and Samsung AFC. Together, PAG1S and PAG1P offer a low BOM cost, high performance PD/PPS/QC compliant solution.

Reference design features:

  • Supports USB PD 3.0
  • Fixed PDO: 5V/3A, 9V/2A
  • PPS: 3V-5.9V/3A, 3.3V-11V/0-2A
  • Passes CoC Tier 2 and DoE Level VI Efficiency standards
  • Passes IEC Safety Standards
  • Low BOM cost with a simple primary start-up controller (PAG1P) and an integrated SR+PD controller (PAG1S)

The board hardware design files (schematic, layout etc) and firmware are readily available below for customers to reduce the design cycle.
