Microchip Releases New USB-C Controller for Reversible-Plug Connections on USB Devices and Cabling
The New UTC2000 USB Controller offers Data Speeds of up to 10Gbps and Much Larger Power Flow
Microchip have announced the addition of the UTC2000, USB-C controller to its leading portfolio of USB devices.
With this new device, designers of a wide range of applications covering the consumer,
industrial and automotive markets can now simply and quickly implement the radically updated USB-C connector cost effectively,
speeding time to market and minimizing bills of materials.
Housed in a 16-pin QFN package, the UTC2000 controller's small form factor also enables the deployment of
USB-C connectors in mobile applications.
The USB-C cable is now poised to become the "universal" cable,
as it is capable of supplying data transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbps, 100W of continuous power flow and
ultra-high-bandwidth video capabilities made available through alternate modes-all with a single connection and cable.
For designers wishing to take advantage of the new standard with the same blazing-fast transfer speeds at the lowest cost point,
the UTC2000 controller supports up to 15W of power, ideal for a wide range of applications in the consumer (e.g., notebooks,
printers and accessories, docking stations, mobile devices and battery chargers), industrial (computers and handheld devices) and
automotive markets (e.g., head units, break-out boxes and USB battery chargers), among others.
“Microchip is well known for its full complement of robust USB solutions, and we are excited to
include support for the emerging USB-C standard at the entry-level market tier,” said Mitch Obolsky,
vice president of Microchip's USB and Networking Group. “The UTC2000 controller allows our customers to easily
add the new USB-C connector to their products, with minimal design time, resources and risk.”
Microchip's expertise with the USB-C standard provides designers integrating the UTC2000 controller into their products
the confidence of meeting all requirements for USB-C compliance.
Additionally, Microchip makes it easy to take full advantage of the USB-C benefits while lowering development costs and
product-launch delay risks.
