USB Type-C Power Controllers Deliver Up To 200W

Texas Instruments introduces two USB Type-C and USB power delivery (PD) controllers, with fully integrated power paths to simplify designs, minimize size, and speed time to market. The TPS65987D and TPS65988 are said to be the industry's first USB PD controllers to source 100W and 200W of power, respectively.


The TPS65987D, a single-port device designed to source 100W of power, integrates independent 20V, 5A source and sink load switches. Low RDS(on) (25 mΩ) and reverse current protection in the TPS65987D provide a comprehensive solution for managing a port's charging needs. The dual-port TPS65988 can source 200 W of power and offers two integrated 5-A bidirectional load switches and external power-path control to enable simultaneous 5-A source capability.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


The devices are USB PD 3.0-certified, UL Recognized, and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) safety-certified and come preprogrammed to support several of the most common use cases including DisplayPort™ and Thunderbolt™ applications.  Additional use cases are supported through an easy-to-use configuration tool. 


Both devices are available now in 7 mm x 7 mm split-pad, quad flat no-lead (QFN) packaging. The TPS65987D and TPS65988 are priced at US$1.99 and $2.99, respectively, each/1,000. For more details, checkout the TPS65987D datasheet and TPS65988 datasheet.
