The SiI7012 and SiI7013 port controllers offer a single integrated solution that can detect and decode Configuration Channel (CC) and Biphase Mark Code (BMC) messaging over USB Type-C connectors without the need for discrete components. These ICs work in conjunction with existing Application Processors (AP) and Embedded Controllers (EC) to provide cost-optimized USB Type-C port controllers. These solutions are compliant with the latest PD and CC requirements defined in the USB specifications. The SiI7012 comes in a small CSP package suitable for smartphones, whereas the SiI7013’s QFN package is ideal for notebooks and accessories. The SiI7014 IC supports the auxiliary channel (AUX) and Hot Plug Detect (HPD) signal required to implement DisplayPort over USB Type-C. In addition, both the SiI7013 and SiI7014 support multiple Type-C ports that are required for notebooks.

“Our cost-effective USB Type-C port controllers deliver the critical functionalities that manufacturers need - a reversible connector, intelligent power delivery and USB data,” said Cheng Hwee Chee, senior director of consumer marketing, Lattice Semiconductor. “We’re excited to offer a broadened portfolio of USB Type-C products to support the rapidly growing USB Type-C market.”
