A dual-port USB-C power delivery (PD) solution with an integrated boost controller for in-car charging applications is presented by Infineon Technologies AG as the EZ-PD CCG7D. In addition to being AEC Q-100 approved, the USB-C PD conforms with the most recent USB Type-C and PD requirements (Version 3.1). Automotive applications supporting Display Port (DP) in alternate mode are the target market for the PD solution. In their latest SUV model, the L9, the Chinese automaker Li Auto, and I worked together to execute the solution. It permits the sharing of multimedia content with the vehicle and charging of USB devices at the same time.
STMicroelectronics, a leading global semiconductor company that serves customers in a variety of electronics applications, has certified two of its integrated circuits (ICs) for use in the device (sink) and adapter (source) sides of USB Power Delivery (USB PD) EPR power supply/charger products via the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF). A universal charger can now charge up to 140W owing to the improved integrated circuits. Computers, power tools, smart home actuators, e-bikes, and other devices, in addition to more conventional uses like smartphones, tablets, and smartwatches, may now all be charged with a single AC to DC adaptor.
