EZ-PD™ ACG1F: One-Port USB Type-C Controller

EZ-PD™ ACG1F (Type-A to Type-C Generation - 1 FET) is a single-port USB Type-C controller that complies with the latest USB Type-C specifications. ACG1F provides a complete USB Type-C control solution for notebooks and desktops. It is used in system which need to convert legacy Type-A data port to Type-C data port. ACG1F uses Cypress' proprietary M0S8 technology with a 16-bit flash, 32-bit Arm® Cortex®-M0 processor and integrates a Type-C controller (without Power Delivery) and a VBUS load switch (5 V/3A).

ACG1F supports Downstream Facing Port (DFP) only.

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 also increases the power delivery capability from 7.5 W to 100 W.
