CC Dead Battery Resistors Integrated for Handling the Dead Battery Use Case in Mobile Devices

An important feature of USB Type-C and USB PD is the ability for this connector to serve as the sole power source to mobile devices. With support up to 100 W, the USB Type-C connector supporting USB PD can be used to power a whole new range of mobile devices not previously possible with legacy USB connectors.

When the USB Type-C connector is the sole power supply for a battery powered device, the device must be able to charge from the USB Type-C connector even when its battery is dead. In order for a USB Type-C power adapter to supply power on VBUS, RD pulldown resistors must be exposed on the CC pins. These RD resistors are typically included inside a USB Type-C CC/PD controller. However, when the TPD6S300A is used to protect the USB Type-C port, the OVP FETs inside the device isolate these RD resistors in the CC/PD controller when the mobile device has no power. This is because when the TPD6S300A has no power, the OVP FETs are turned off to guarantee overvoltage protection in a dead battery condition. Therefore, the TPD6S300A integrates high-voltage, dead battery RD pull-down resistors to allow dead battery charging simultaneously with high-voltage OVP protection.

If dead battery support is required, short the RPD_G1 pin to the C_CC1 pin, and short the RPD_G2 pin to the C_CC2 pin. This connects the dead battery resistors to the connector CC pins. When the TPD6S300A is unpowered, and the RP pull-up resistor is connected from a power adaptor, this RP pull-up resistor activates the RD resistor inside the TPD6S300A. This enables VBUS to be applied from the power adaptor even in a dead battery condition. Once power is restored back to the system and back to the TPD6S300A on its VPWR pin, the TPD6S300A turns ON its OVP FETs in 3.5 ms and then turns OFF its dead battery RD. The TPD6S300A first turns ON its CC OVP FETs fully, and then removes its dead battery RDs. This is to make sure the PD controller RD is fully exposed before removing the RD of the TPD6S300A. This is to help ensure the USB Type-C source remains attached because a USB Type-C sink must have an RD present on CC at all times to guarantee according to the USB Type-C spec that the USB Type-C source remains attached.

If desiring to power the CC/PD controller during dead battery mode and if the CC/PD Controller is configured as a DRP, it is critical that the TPD6S300A be powered before or at the same time that the CC/PD controller is powered. It is also critical that when unpowered, the CC/PD controller also expose its dead battery resistors. When the TPD6S300A gets powered, it exposes the CC pins of the CC/PD controller within 3.5 ms, and then removes its own RD dead battery resistors. Once the TPD6S300A turns on, the RD pull-down resistors of the CC/PD controller must be present immediately, in order to guarantee the power adaptor connected to power the dead battery device keeps its VBUS turned on. If the power adaptor does not see RD present, it can disconnect VBUS. This removes power from the device with its battery still not sufficiently charged, which consequently removes power from the CC/PD controller and the TPD6S300A. Then the RD resistors of the TPD6S300A are exposed again, and connects the power adaptor's VBUS to start the cycle over. This creates an infinite loop, never or very slowly charging the mobile device.

If the CC/PD Controller is configured for DRP and has started its DRP toggle before the TPD6S300A turns on, this DRP toggle is unable to guarantee that the power adaptor does not disconnect from the port. Therefore, it is recommended if the CC/PD controller is configured for DRP, that its dead battery resistors be exposed as well, and that they remain exposed until the TPD6S300A turns on. This is typically accomplished by powering the TPD6S300A at the same time as the CC/PD controller when powering the CC/PD controller in dead battery operation. When protecting the TPS6598x family of PD controllers with TPD6S300A, this is accomplished by powering TPD6S300A from TPS6598x's LDO_3V3 pin (connect TPS6598x's LDO_3V3 pin to TPD6S300A's VPWR pin).

If dead battery charging is not required in your application, connect the RPD_G1 and RPD_G2 pins to ground.
