Anker Selects Cypress’ USB-C Controller


Cypress Semiconductor announced that its USB-C controller with USB Power Delivery (PD) was selected by Anker for integration into Anker’s new family of USB-C chargers. Anker’s new PowerPort PD chargers with Cypress’ EZ-PD CCG3PA USB-C controller aims to deliver high-speed USB-C charging performance in smaller form factors for greater portability.

Cypress’s USB-C controllers are being widely adopted by the world’s top-tier electronics manufacturers including Anker. With the integration of Cypress’ EZ-PD CCG3PA with USB PD, Anker’s new family of PowerPort PD chargers deliver up to 2.5x faster charging times than standard USB-C power adapters. And because the EZ-PD CCG3PA controller is compact with a highly-integrated architecture, this helped enable Anker to reduce its own charger dimensions by up to 40%.

“Cypress USB-C controllers provide our engineering team with the design flexibility and programmability required to build Anker’s new generation of USB-C fast-charging solutions,” said Steven Yang, CEO of Anker Innovations. “The new PowerPort chargers are the most versatile yet and will allow our customers to charge virtually any USB-C device at full speed.”

“Anker is the recognized global leader in the charging market and these new products are an exciting showcase of the great benefits that our USB-C controller technology bring to our customers,” said Ajay Srikrishna, vice president of Cypress’ Wired Connectivity Business Unit. “The EZ-PD CCG3PA controller streamlines the design of USB-C power source products, making it the controller of choice for market leaders like Anker.”

Cypress notes that its EZ-PD portfolio was the first in the industry to support the latest USB PD 3.0 specification, which enables more robust end-to-end power delivery and charging solutions for laptop and mobile devices. Cypress also offers AEC-Q100 certified versions of the CCG2 and CCG3PA controllers for automotive-grade performance.

USB-C is gaining rapid support with top-tier electronics manufacturers by enabling slim industrial designs, easy-to-use connectors, and cables, the ability to transmit multiple protocols and provide up to 100 Watts of power. The USB-C standard’s 2.4-mm-high connector plug is also significantly smaller than the current 4.5-mm USB Standard-A connector, enabling easier integration for a wider range of devices.
