The USB4 specification was published in September 2019 with promises of up to 40 Gbps data transfer rate over a Thunderbolt physical layer, and last December, we reported about an MCCI USB4 switch designed to test and design USB4 products.
Cypress Semiconductor EZ-PD CCG6DF and CCG6SF dual-port and single-port USB-C and USB PD 3.0 controllers designed for PCs and notebooks that will be compatible with USB4 standard.
EZ-PD CCG6DF and CCG6SF key features:
- MCU Subsystem – Arm Cortex-M0 core @ 48 MHz with 64KB flash, 96KB SROM, 16KB SRAM
- USB Type-C and Power Delivery 3.0 supporting USB3 and USB4, Thunderbolt, DisplayPort Alternate Mode platforms
- Digital I/Os
- Two timers, counters, PWMs, and up to 23 GPIOs
- Four SCBs (Serial Communication Blocks) for configurable master/slave I2C, SPI or UART
- Analog Blocks
- VBUS Provider Load switch (5V/3A)
- Slew rate controlled turn-on on VBUS path
- UAB PD 3.0 Fast Role Swap support
- Integrated high-voltage 20V-regulator
- SBU Pass through, USB analog mux
- VBUS-to-CC short protection, VBUS-to-SBU short protection
- VCONN FETs
- System-Level Fault Protection
- Over-current, Over-voltage, Under-voltage, Reverse-current and Short-circuit protection on VBUS provider path
- VCONN over-current protection
- Thermal Shutdown
- Packages – CCG6DF: 96-BGA (6×6 mm); CCG6SF: 48-QFN (6×6 mm)
The CCG6DF and CCG6SF USB-C + USB PD controllers are already sampling to selected partners, and are expected to be in volume production in early Q3 2020. You may find a few more details in the press release and product page which includes a datasheet.
