Lattice Semiconductor expanded its USB Type-C product family with three new offerings: SiI7012, SiI7013 and SiI7014 port controllers.
Port controllers are used to configure the USB Type-C upstream facing port (UFP) or downstream facing port (DFP), detect cable orientation and negotiate power delivery (PD) on the USB Type-C connection.
The SiI7012 and SiI7013 port controllers offer a single integrated solution that can detect and decode configuration channel (CC) and biphase mark code (BMC) messaging over USB Type-C connectors without the need for discrete components. These ICs work in conjunction with existing application processors (AP) and embedded controllers (EC) to provide cost-optimized USB Type-C port controllers.
The solutions are compliant with the latest PD and CC requirements defined in the USB specifications.
