January 06, 2017 // By Nick Flaherty
eEver Technology and Etron Technology in Taiwan have jointly developed a 100 W USB type C power controller for the PD3.0 standard.

The EJ899 can deliver power of 100 W and up to 5 Amps at 20 V and allows two-way power delivery between the power provider and consumer, creating a high degree of flexibility and ability to optimize power management. The EJ899 is suitable for USB 3.1, USB 3.0, and USB 2.0 interfaces and other USB specifications and can be widely used in all sorts of electronic systems and devices with charging functions.

Etron's USB Type-C PD3.0 controller IC design solutions are fully compliant with USB-IF's latest USB PD3.0 specification. For data transmission, PD3.0 supports up to 260 bytes, up frm 28 bytes in PD2.0, enabling transmitting more messages for manufacturer information, security information, firmware update information, etc. For data delivery, PD3.0 can switch the role of power provider and consumer and can prevent data corruption during a sudden disconnect of its power source. The EJ899 is fully backward compatible with USB PD2.0, enables faster performance for firmware updates, unleashes highest power efficiency and adds a certification information switching function between Type-C and cables.
