Cypress Extends USB-C Leadership with Fully Integrated USB-C Charger Solution for Power Adapter OEMs

Programmable EZ-PD PAG1 Family Delivers Increased Efficiency and
Reliability for Charging Applications in Growing USB-C Market

TAIPEI, Taiwan–(BUSINESS WIRE)–COMPUTEX—Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY), today announced the
newest member of its USB-C Power Delivery family, the EZ-PD
Power Adapter Generation 1 (PAG1)

solution. The PAG1 is a complete AC-DC power solution with an integrated
USB Power Delivery (PD) controller that enables OEMs to build reliable,
efficient, and cost-effective power adapters for the growing USB-C
charger market.

Cypress is the market leader in USB-C technology, and its EZ-PD PAG1
family continues Cypress’ leadership by delivering a two-chip USB-C
power solution that integrates the key primary, secondary, and USB PD
controller components together. With its advanced features, the PAG1
provides best-in-class efficiency, increased reliability, and a reduced
bill of materials for OEMs. The PAG1 is fully programmable, enabling OEM
designers to easily configure their USB charger solutions to support a
number of charging standards including: PD3.0 with PPS, QC4/4+, Apple
Charging, QC 3.0/2.0, Samsung AFC, and BC v1.2.

“With EZ-PD PAG1, Cypress now offers a fully integrated power adapter
solution including AC-DC and USB-C components, expanding our leadership
position while offering increased value to our customers,” said Ajay
Srikrishna, vice president of Cypress’ Wired Connectivity Business Unit.
“With our continued focus on our customers, the highly integrated PAG1
family was built in response to the need for a robust USB Power Delivery
solution with class-leading performance.”

USB-C is the new connectivity standard that can simultaneously power
devices as well as transmit data using the same cable and standard
reversible connector. USB-C powers devices up to 100W and enables the
consolidation of different interfaces on the same port. As more devices
are charged with a single charger or power adapter, bulky and multiple
proprietary power adapters are no longer needed, which simplifies design
and reduces e-waste.

“With the versatility and benefits USB-C brings to the market, IHS
Markit anticipates the number of devices having at least one USB-C port
to increase at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 70
percent, growing from 300 million devices in 2016 to just under 5
billion devices in 2021,” said Noman Akhtar, research analyst,
Industrial Semiconductors and Sensors, IHS Markit. “USB Type-C is an
advanced wired interface technology and will modernize many consumer
electronic segments with its fast-charging capabilities as well as the
ability to simultaneously transfer data across numerous devices.”

The PAG1 family will be demonstrated at Computex 2019 in Taipei Taiwan
from May 28th to June 1st. Along with the EZ-PD
BCR solution that enables OEMs to easily replace barrel power connectors
with USB-C in any electronic product consuming less than 100W, Cypress
now provides a complete end-to-end USB Power Delivery solution from the
power provider to the power consumer, paving the way to realize a USB-C
powers everything

Product Availability

The EZ-PD PAG1 family is now sampling to major OEMs. The controllers
will be in production in the fourth quarter of 2019.
