Microchip Technology recently expanded its programmable USB-port power controller portfolio with the dual-channel UCS2112. This UCS2112 port power controller supports two ports, with eight programmable continuous current limits for each port, ranging from 0.53 to 3 A for faster charging times at higher currents. You can use it as is or with USB hubs to create a complete charging or USB communication system.Microchip UCS2112
