EZ-PD™ BCR-LITE CYPD3178 - USB Type-C port controller for power sinks
The EZ-PD™ BCR-LITE CYPD3178 is a highly-integrated pre-programmed USB Type-C sink port controller and a part of the EZ-PD™ Barrel Connector Replacement (BCR) family. It has the ability to support ports with or without USB data capability. It mainly targets electronic devices that have legacy barrel connectors or USB micro-B connectors for power such as drones, smart speakers, power tools, and other rechargeable devices. EZ-PD™ BCR-LITE complies with the latest USB Type-C standard and enables users to quickly convert their devices from being powered through a barrel connector to being powered via the USB-C connector with few external components and no additional firmware development.
The EZ-PD™ BCR-LITE integrates a complete USB Type-C transceiver, a load switch controller with a soft start, all termination resistors required for a USB Type-C port, and system-level ESD protection. It is available in a 24-pin QFN package.
