New Product Introduction

STMicroelectronics STUSB1600A - USB Type-C™ controller

The STUSB1600A is a USB Type-C controller with high voltage protected suited for attach detection, plug orientation detection and more USB Type-C functions

STUSB1600 application - smart charging

The STUSB1600A is an IC controller, fully compliant with the USB Type-C cable and connector specification (rev. 1.2), which addresses 5 V USB Type-C port management both on the host and/or device side. It is designed for a broad range of applications and can handle the following USB Type-C functions: attach detection, plug orientation detection, host to device connection, VCONN support, and VBUS configuration. Thanks to its 20 V technology, it implements high voltage protection features against short-circuits to VBUS up to 28 V. The device supports dead battery mode and is fully customizable thanks to an integrated non-volatile memory.
