EZ-PD™ BCR HPI Utility:

HELPS YOU EVALUATE THE USAGE OF HOST PROGRAMMING INTERAFCE (HPI) OF THE BCR CONTROLLER IN YOUR USB-C POWER SINK DEDIGN

Recommended devices: BCR

DESCRIPTION

Cypress EZ-PD™ Barrel Connector Replacement (BCR) controller is a USB-C Power Delivery solution dedicated to power sink applications. The BCR controller acts as a Up Facing Port (UFP) and interoperates with any USB-C Down Facing Port (DFP) or Dual-Role Port (DRP) for establishing a USB-PD contract. The BCR controller can be fully configured by hardware using pin-strapping, or by software using HPI commands from an external I2C master (e.g. MCU).

The EZ-PD™ BCR HPI Utility is a GUI-based application developed by Cypress to guide users through the process of configuring the BCR controller using HPI. The utility allows users to:

  1. Evaluate the usage of HPI using the EZ-PD BCR Kit and a Windows-based PC.
  2. Select and configure the desired BCR controller settings using HPI that overrides the preset hardware configuration on the BCR Kit.
  3. Monitor the real-time status of USB-C connection, Power source capabilities, USB PD power contract, VBus voltage, etc.
