11-02-2015 | Mouser Electronics | Power

A programmable USB power controller that offers an industry-standard power delivery and battery charging protocol, the Microchip UPD100X is now available from Mouser. A single USB cable can be used for data, and simultaneously can deliver up to 100W of power from a single standard USB port which is 40 times the power compared to USB 2.0. With up to 100W of available power, designers can dynamically allocate this power to fast battery charging and system power. The UPD100X family serves a wide range of applications in the consumer (e.g., notebooks, printers and accessories, docking stations, mobile devices and battery chargers), industrial (computers and handheld devices) and automotive markets (e.g., head units, break-out boxes and USB battery chargers), among others.
