Diodes Incorporated announced release of AP43770 USB Type-C power delivery (PD) controller is a highly integrated solution for implementing PD over USB in fixed and portable devices, and offline power adapters. The AP43770 offers an embedded microcontroller running firmware compliant with the latest USB Type-C specification and USB PD Revision 3.0 V1.1. Along with this, the controller also support Qualcomm Quick Charge (QC) 4/4+ which is built into the device. The backwards compatibility is maintained with existing equipment by inclusion of QC3.0, QC2.0, and Battery Charging (BC) revision 1.2 and other legacy protocols with auto-detection.
The AP43770 features USB eMarker applied to active cables because of its potential to deliver high levels of power. The AP43770 comes with necessary support for eMarker technology, in order to detect and identify cables before power is delivered along the support for cable compensation. The USB PD offers 8kb OTP(for main firmware code) or MTP(for user configurable parameters) memory feature for manufacturers requirements to set up power specification and protocol options. The AP43770 can be used in AC Adapters, Car Chargers, USB PD Converter, Power Hubs, Power Banks.
