USB-C Buck-Boost Battery Charger Supports Two-Way Power Delivery
Intersil Corp.

Heralded as the industry’s first buck-boost battery charger that supports two-way power delivery in ultrabooks, tablets, and power banks using the reversible USB Type-C™ connector, the single-chip ISL9237 Narrow VDC (NVDC) battery charger replaces buck and boost two-chip charger solutions,. This eliminates a charger IC and inductor to reduce bill of materials (BOM) costs by up to 40%. The device also supports USB On-The-Go (OTG) with a 5-Vout reverse buck-mode, and reduces traditional two-stage charging to a single-stage buck-boost. The USB Type-C interface connection enables delivery of data, video, and power up to 100W over a single cable. Available in a 4 mm x 4 mm, 32-lead QFN package, price is $3.50 each/1,000.
