Texas Instruments (TI) introduced two new USB Type-C™ and USB Power Delivery (PD) controllers, with fully integrated power paths to simplify designs, minimize solution size and speed time to market. The TPS65987D and TPS65988 offer system designers the industry’s highest level of integration which can reduce design complexity and overall cost. For more information, see www.ti.com/TPS65987D-pr-eu and www.ti.com/TPS65988-pr-eu.
The devices are the industry’s first USB PD controllers to source 100 W and 200 W of power, respectively, to support computing applications and enable the benefits of USB Type-C in additional applications such as cordless power tools, gaming and virtual reality headsets. The TPS65987D, a single-port device designed to source 100 W of power, integrates independent 20-V, 5-A source and sink load switches. Low RDS(on) (25mΩ) and reverse current protection in the TPS65987D provide a comprehensive solution for managing a port’s charging needs. The dual-port TPS65988 can source 200 W of power, and offers two integrated 5-A bidirectional load switches and external power-path control to enable simultaneous 5-A source capability.
The devices are USB PD 3.0-certified, UL Recognized, and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) safety-certified, and come preprogrammed to support several of the most common use cases including DisplayPort™ and Thunderbolt™ applications. Additional use cases are supported through an easy-to-use configuration tool.
