Key features of the new USB Type-C™ connector

The Type-C connector has been designed to:

  • ensure reversible plug orientation and cable direction
  • deliver up to 100 W through USB Power Delivery (PD) profiles while supporting proprietary charging algorithms with the Programmable Power Supply feature (PPS)
  • support USB 3.1 with data rates up to 10 Gbit/s
  • enable other common data communication protocols (Alternate Modes)

The new USB Type-C™ connector also ensures secure data transfer during the authentication process between two devices and safe charging. Thanks also to its small and lean form-factor, the new USB Type-C™ connector is very quickly gaining traction in the industry.

    • Our cutting-edge silicon technologies and extensive IP portfolio allow us to provide a range of USB-IF certified solutions for USB Type-C and Power Delivery. They are suitable for implementing a variety of sink, source and dual-role ports and for every power level within the standard. They include USB Type-C interfaces and PD controllers – available as either auto-run- hardwired or MCU-based - and authentication solutions, as well as a comprehensive range of devices for data and power line protection.
