Renesas USB Power Delivery Family is based on USB Power Delivery (USB PD) Standards. Renesas is developing products for USB PD controllers to help customers easily select USB related components.
USB Power Delivery
The USB PD is a standard that increases the maximum DC power supply capacity of 7.5 W implemented by the earlier USB standards by a factor of 13 times, to 100 W (20 V at 5 A). With the rapid demand growth for devices using USB charging, the potential for sub-standard and non-compliant USB accessories (e.g., cables) entering the market increases substantially. The need for identifying non-compliant USB products becomes critically important, particularly for the high-power charging designs based on USB PD standards.
