Rohm has recently announced the development of a new class of power receiver controller ICs compatible with the latest USB Power Delivery (Rev2.0) and Type-C (Rev1.1) standards. The BM92TxxMWV series supports not only conventional USB power supply up to 7.5W, but the newly expanded power range as well up to 100W (20V/5A) for USB Type-C connected devices.
This will make it possible to drive equipment with larger power requirements such as TVs and PCs via USB and at the same time enable conventional USB-equipped portable devices (i.e. smart phones, tablets) to be charged up to 4 times faster than the previous standard.
The new Type-C connector boasts a smaller, reversible, flippable cable design; USB PD offers scalable power using multiple power delivery modes.
