Cypress Semiconductor introduced the newest member of USB-C Power Delivery family, the EZ-PD Power Adapter Generation 1 (PAG1) solution.
The company in its latest statement said the PAG1 is a complete AC-DC power solution with an integrated USB Power Delivery (PD) controller that enables OEMs to build reliable, efficient, and cost-effective power adapters for the growing USB-C charger market. Cypress is the market leader in USB-C technology, and its EZ-PD PAG1 family continues Cypress’ leadership by delivering a two-chip USB-C power solution that integrates the key primary, secondary, and USB PD controller components together.
With its advanced features, the PAG1 provides best-in-class efficiency, increased reliability, and a reduced bill of materials for OEMs. The PAG1 is fully programmable, enabling OEM designers to easily configure their USB charger solutions to support a number of charging standards including PD3.0 with PPS, QC4/4+, Apple Charging, QC 3.0/2.0, Samsung AFC, and BC v1.2.
“With EZ-PD PAG1, Cypress now offers a fully integrated power adapter solution including AC-DC and USB-C components, expanding our leadership position while offering increased value to our customers,” said Ajay Srikrishna, vice president of Cypress Wired Connectivity Business Unit. “With our continued focus on our customers, the highly integrated PAG1 family was built in response to the need for a robust USB Power Delivery solution with class-leading performance.”
USB-C is the new connectivity standard that can simultaneously power devices as well as transmits data using the same cable and standard reversible connector. USB-C powers devices up to 100W and enables the consolidation of different interfaces on the same port. As more devices are charged with a single charger or power adapter, bulky and multiple proprietary power adapters are no longer needed, which simplifies design and reduces e-waste.
The PAG1 family will be demonstrated at Computex 2019 in Taipei Taiwan from May 28th to June 1st.
The EZ-PD PAG1 family is now sampling to major OEMs. The controllers will be in production in the fourth quarter of 2019.
