Weltrend’s USB Power Delivery Controller Achieves USB-IF Certification
|Hsinchu, Taiwan, September 19, 2017 – Weltrend Semiconductor (TAIEX: 2436) today announced that its USB Power Delivery (PD) controller chipset, WT6633P, passed the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) certification test for USB-Type-CTM Downstream Facing Port (Source) applications. The Weltrend controller passed the full set of compliance tests at the recently held USB-IF Compliance Workshop event in Portland, Oregon.|
|Weltrend’s USB PD controllers address a broad set of market segments for the emerging USB Type-C products including power adapters for USB Type-C based notebooks, 2-in-1s, tablets, and smartphones as well as USB Type-C based accessories such as car chargers, power banks, power strips, docking stations and dongles.|
|The WT6633P supports USB PD 3.0 Programmable Power Supply (PPS) specification as well as Qualcomm® Quick ChargeTM 4 or Quick Charge 4+ specification, designed for USB Type-C power source applications. The PPS specification is typically used for Sink Directed Charge for the battery in mobile devices and is now rapidly becoming the preferred choice of smartphone OEMs for safe and rapid charging.|
|The WT6633P minimizes external components by integrating USB PD baseband PHY, Type-C detection, shunt regulator, voltage and current monitors, NMOS load switch driver and an 8-bit MCU to allow small form factor and low BOM cost. Wide operation voltage range (3V to 24V) supports PD 3.0 Programmable Power Supply (PPS) specification. One-Time-Programmable ROM is provided for program code and user configuration data.|
