Flexible USB Type-C controller powers Salcomp’s charger

Lattice Semiconductor's flexible USB Type-C port controller, the LIF-UC, has been integrated into Salcomp’s SPEEDY power adapter. Salcomp will continue to use Lattice’s upgradable port controller for future USB Type-C accessories that intelligently deliver higher wattage to mobile devices.

Lattice’s LIF-UC port controllers offer a seamless connection to the AC/DC controller within the charger to enable a simple and low cost design. Using an FPGA architecture, Lattice’s solution delivers the flexibility needed to enable customisation to differentiate Salcomp’s products. Salcomp is the global market leader for mobile phone and tablet chargers and a leading manufacturer of external power adapters for other communications equipment. USB Type-C is an attractive solution for Salcomp’s customers along the entire electronics spectrum from mobile phones to notebooks. Delivering up to 100W, USB Type-C is the new connector for many next-gen products that Salcomp’s customers are developing.

C.H. Chee, Senior Director, Consumer Marketing, Lattice, commented: “We designed our LIF-UC family of port controllers to provide our customers with various design options to enable USB Type-C power delivery. By leveraging Lattice’s flexible FPGA architecture, Salcomp was able to bring enhanced charging capabilities to its latest product offering."

“The combination of Lattice’s technology and strength in USB Type-C made them the ideal partner when it came to our implementation,” added Markku Hangasjärvi, CEO and President, Salcomp. “We look forward to continuing to work with Lattice on future USB Type-C charging products.”
