Evaluation boards enable USB Type-C power delivery

Designed to connect to information and peripheral devices using the new Type-C connector, ROHM has announced the availability of USB Power Delivery (USBPD) compatible transmitter/receiver evaluation boards. Recent years have seen a greater demand to reduce industrial waste in many regions, including Europe, for example by utilising or developing universal connectors and chargers for a variety of electronic devices that can be used worldwide.

As such, the new USB Type-C connector and USB Power Delivery standard developed by the USB Implementers Forum are attracting increased attention, featuring a breakthrough interface that boasts a compact, reversible/flippable connector capable of simultaneously transmitting data and scalable power over a wide range.

USBPD extends the power supply range from the conventional 15 to up to 100W (20V/5A) between USB Type-C compliant devices. This enables larger devices such as laptops and TVs to be powered via USB while contributing to the transformation of infrastructure as the number of USB ports in homes and hotels continues to grow.

The new BM92AxxMWV-EVK-01 series integrates ROHM’s USBPD controller IC that supports the USB Type-C Rev1.1 and USBPD Rev2.0 standards for connecting with USB Type-C devices. ROHM leveraged leading BiCDMOS processes and circuit technology to develop USB PD controller ICs that are expected to provide greater convenience while significantly reducing industrial waste.

The initial launch will consist of six boards in a mix of both receiver and transmitter types to meet the needs of a variety of applications. Users can combine receiver and transmitter boards to easily achieve and evaluate USB PD operation.
