Controller offers industry-standard power delivery and battery charging protocol
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.
