The TPD6S300A is a single chip USB Type-C port protection solution that provides 20-V Short-to-VBUS overvoltage and IEC ESD protection. Due to the small pin pitch of the USB Type-C connector and non-compliant USB Type-C cables and accessories, the VBUS pins can get shorted to the CC and SBU pins inside the USB Type-C connector. Because of this short-to-VBUS event, the CC and SBU pins need to be 20-V tolerant, to support protection on the full USB PD voltage range. Even if a device does not support 20-V operation on VBUS, non complaint adaptors can start out with 20-V VBUS condition, making it necessary for any USB Type-C device to support 20 V protection. The TPD6S300A integrates four channels of 20-V Short-to-VBUS overvoltage protection for the CC1, CC2, SBU1, and SBU2 pins of the USB Type-C connector.

Additionally, IEC 61000-4-2 system level ESD protection is required in order to protect a USB Type-C port from ESD strikes generated by end product users. The TPD6S300A integrates six channels of IEC61000-4-2 ESD protection for the CC1, CC2, SBU1, SBU2, DP, and DM pins of the USB Type-C connector. This means IEC ESD protection is provided for all of the low-speed pins on the USB Type-C connector in a single chip in the TPD6S300A. Additionally, high-voltage IEC ESD protection that is 22-V DC tolerant is required for the CC and SBU lines in order to simultaneously support IEC ESD and Short-to-VBUS protection; there are not many discrete market solutions that can provide this kind of protection. This high-voltage IEC ESD diode is what the TPD6S300A integrates, specifically designed to guarantee it works in conjunction with the overvoltage protection FETs inside the device. This sort of solution is very hard to generate with discrete components.
