- The charging port technologies have evolved in the past decade with increased output power and features like fast charging and turbocharging.
- The component is designed to enhance dual role USB-C ports which simplify host and client design.
Diode Technologies have announced a new product which is a dual-role BC1.2-compliance charging-type detector. The main feature for the device is its compactness and programmable capability. It has a compact size of 2mm x 2mm and it can be programmed to operate in host mode or client mode through I2C Communication.
RoHS compliant and Lead-free device promoting Green energy
The IC comes in a 12 pin contact and supports a wide range of power supply ranging between 2.7 Volts to 5.5 Volts. It supports variable current output ranging from 1 Ampere to 2.4 Ampere. The operating industrial temperature range is between -40 degree Celcius to 85 degrees Celcius. The component supports a frequency range of 2 GHz. The company claims the device to be Lead-free and based on RoHS standards.
Current consumption less than 1 uA in shutdown mode
The component supports 3 host modes and a plug-in and unplug detection in SDP/CDP modes. It can be used as a differential bidirectional USB Switch and it provides a 1MHz I2C interface for communication. There are 4 different selectable slave addresses for the 4 output channels with a dedicated USB switch Pass-through Feature. The device supports low energy devices and features the least current consumption( below 1 uA) in Shutdown mode.
