EZ-PD™ CCG3PA Automotive USB Type-C and Power Delivery Controller

EZ-PD™ CCG3PA Auto is Cypress’ second-gen Automotive USB-C and Power Delivery controller targeting in-vehicle charger ports. CCG3PA Auto supports Power Delivery 3.0 with Programmable Power Supply (PPS), Quick Charge 4.0, integrated VBUS-to-CC short protection, 30V-tolerant regulator, high-voltage PFET gate drivers, VBUS Over-Voltage and Over-Current Protection, and ESD protection.

CCG3PA Auto is a programmable solution with 64KB flash for firmware upgrade enabling smart features such as:

  • Dynamic load sharing between ports
  • Support for USB Power Delivery 3.0 including PPS as well as legacy protocols (BC 1.2, QC 2.0/3.0/4.0+, Apple Charging, Samsung AFC)
  • Single chip solution for systems with USB Type-C + Type-A (with CCG3PA Automotive)
  • Smart communication to media hubs in head unit
  • Support for Alternate Modes (DisplayPort) for read seat entertainment systems
  • Cable compensation to account for designs with pigtails
  • Smart power management, with thermal- and VIN-based power throttling
  • Programmability enabling customization such as port priority, LED controls etc.
  • Flash upgradability to keep up with latest USB Power Delivery standards

Cypress has USB Type-C and Power Delivery reference designs readily available online for various applications which 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.
