Getting started

How to pick a USB Type-C® & USB PD device

How do you know if you actually need USB Power Delivery (PD)? This quick overview will help you determine if you need a USB PD or configuration channel (CC) controller in your system. 

USB Type-C is the latest USB standard. It enables reversible plug orientation and cable direction while using small form-factor connectors support up to 15 W and 10 Gbps.

USB Power Delivery (PD) uses the Type-C connector to deliver up to 100 W (20 V, 5 A) of power. USB PD also enables the usage of Alternate Mode.

An Alternate Mode enables enhanced functionality across the USB-C cable. Examples include DisplayPort™ for simultaneous USB data and video, and Thunderbolt for faster data and video transfer.

Protect your Type-C designs from unexpected voltage stress caused by noncompliant solutions and user behaviors using a protection device while retaining full functionality of the Type-C port.

Flexible solutions that pair with Type-C and Power Delivery port controllers to help manage the power flow across Type-C ports while remaining compliant with the standard.

 A USB Type-C mux is a device that provides a multiplex or de-multiplex function which helps route the active traffic signal to the desired end points. 

USB redrivers are designed to compensate channel loss caused by inter-symbol interference through equalization.
