NXP Semiconductors has introduced "the industry's first and most complete USB Type-C solution", which includes authentication and power transfer capabilities to further provide a secure connection for the smart world.
The authentication feature can be used to authenticate the device and determine whether specific features of the device should be enabled. This can maximize battery life and prevent potential safety hazards or equipment damage caused by poor-quality materials or substandard products. For example, detect fake power before using it for fast charging.
Grahame Cooney, general manager of the Security Interfaces business unit, said: "We are excited to try out the industry's first secure USB Type-C total solution to seamlessly connect data, video, security and power through a single connector." semiconductor. "This innovation provides consumers with a secure plug-and-play experience that allows them to quickly charge data and video while transferring data on their devices. As an industry leader in security, NXP has provided USB Type-C Added authentication to help customers better protect their devices and improve the reliability, security, and safety of the USB Type-C ecosystem. "
With its increasing popularity, USB Type-C connectors are expected to become device-to-device connections New standards. USB Type-C connector and cable technology provides data rates up to 10Gbps and 100W of power to meet the growing demand for computing, mobile and consumer products.
The Type-C connector is an improvement over the previous Type-A and Type-B USB connectors, is more friendly, provides reversible plug orientation, cable orientation, and the ability to transmit power and data at the same time, and supports different protocols , For example as a backup mode for DisplayPort, MHL and Thunderbolt. Two-way power flow support enables the device to provide or absorb power. In addition, the Type-C connector also provides scalable power solutions ranging from 0.5A at 0.5V for handheld devices to 20V at 5V for fast charging and power.
NXP's entire USB Type-C ecosystem includes microcontrollers, high-speed switches, USB3 redrivers, ESD protection and filtering devices, USB PD PHY, CC logic controllers, authentication, load switches, AC / DC power solutions, MOSFET and so on. The company says it will release more Type-C products every month.
