Anker Selects Cypress’ USB-C Controller for New Charger Family

Cypress Semiconductor has announced that its USB-C controller with USB Power Delivery (PD) was selected by Anker for integration into Anker’s new family of USB-C chargers. With the integration of Cypress’ EZ-PD CCG3PA with USB PD, Anker’s new family of PowerPort PD chargers deliver up to 2.5x faster charging times than standard USB-C power adapters, according to Cypress. The EZ-PD CCG3PA controller is compact with a highly-integrated architecture, which helped enable Anker to reduce its own charger dimensions by up to 40%.

USB-C is gaining rapid support with top-tier electronics manufacturers by enabling slim industrial designs, easy-to-use connectors and cables, the ability to transmit multiple protocols, and provide up to 100 W of power. The USB-C standard’s 2.4-mm-high connector plug is also significantly smaller than the current 4.5-mm USB Standard-A connector, enabling easier integration for a wider range of devices.
