Two controllers and switch device offer quick and easy adoption of USB-C

22-02-2018 | ON Semiconductor | Subs & Systems

ON Semiconductor's latest set of USB-C (Type-C) devices that are fully compliant with the latest revision 1.3 specifications, enabling simple integration into USB-C systems. The new devices include two controllers and a switch, which are aimed at applications such as tablets, smartphones, and laptops, as well as automotive and industrial use cases. The FUSB303 port controller can convert existing and new systems to USB-C interface, supporting applications requiring Source (SRC), Sink (SNK), or Dual Role Port (DRP) modes. The new device provides autonomous detection and requires minimal processor interaction and firmware support, providing flexibility and offering customisation options. The FSUSB242 is ideal for mobile applications, as it offers low power consumption, and saves board space with its WLCSP-9 package and elimination of the requirement for an external TVS. The FUSB302BV is a USB-C controller developed specifically for PD solutions in automotive systems. While other solutions are only available for consumer applications, this device is AEC-Q100 qualified and facilitates detection, including attach and orientation, making it one of the most efficient and flexible products available. Commenting on the new releases, Julie Stultz, product marketing manager, ON Semiconductor said, “This extension to our USB-C product offering includes several market-leading devices that will allow engineers to easily and rapidly integrate fully 1.3-compliant solutions. In keeping with our mission to deliver energy efficient solutions to the market, all three products successfully combine high-performance with low power consumption. The ultra-small footprints make them ideal for mobile and ultra-portable applications while the AEC-Q100 qualified FUSB302BV represents a significant step forward in automotive USB solutions.”
