Microchip Technology Inc. has introduced a line of USB power delivery (UPD) controllers, the UPD100X, with an industry-standard power delivery and battery charging protocol. According to the manufacturer, a single USB cable can be used for data, and simultaneously can deliver up to 100W of power from a single standard USB port which is 40 times the power compared to USB 2.0. With up to 100W of available power, designers can dynamically allocate this power to fast battery charging and system power, noted the company.

UPD1001

The UPD1001 is the first of the family and is a highly flexible and configurable solution that supports the five USB-IF standard UPD power profiles plus an additional 25 UPD-compliant profiles for a total of 30 profiles supported by a single chip. This will allow designers to select the optimum power profiles in order to meet their specific application requirements. Simple configuration is achieved by strapping the two configuration select pins on the UPD1001. A multitude of configurations are available to provide utmost flexibility. Integrated quad-banks of one-time programmable memory allow for further system customisation without the need of any external memory components.

The UPD100X family serves a range of applications in the consumer (e.g., notebooks, printers and accessories, docking stations, mobile devices and battery chargers), industrial (computers and handheld devices) and automotive markets (e.g., head units, break-out boxes and USB battery chargers), among others.

The UPD1001 is supported by Microchip's UPD1001 Evaluation Kit (part EVB-UPD1001), and is available.

The UPD1001 devices are available for sampling in 32-pin QFN and 28-pin TSSOP and will be supplied in 10,000-unit quantities. Volume production for these devices is expected in July.
