MUNICH – Infineon Technologies AG in Munich is introducing the EZ-PD CMG2 USB-C electronically marked cable assembly (eMarker) controller for USB-C power connectors in extended power range (EPR) USB-C, USB4, and Thunderbolt passive cable applications.
Infineon’s ED-PD portfolio of USB-C power delivery controllers offer the ED-PD Cable Marker Generation 2 (CMG2) dedicated eMarker controller for passive non-Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt Type-C cables and supports USB-power delivery 3.1 and Type-C 2.1 standards.
ED-PD CMG2-based USB-C eMarker cables can handle USB4 and TBT4 data rates to 240 Watts of power. ED-PD CMG2 provides integrated V BUS-to-CC short circuit protection to 54 volts and V BUS-to-V CONN short circuit protection to 54 volts.
Additionally, it supports R A weakening to reduce power consumption and integrates an oscillator and IEC ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection, eliminating the need for external clock and external ESD, respectively.
The controller comes with a configurable 47-byte storage space for vendor- and cable-specific configuration data and operates within a 2.7-to-5.5-volt V CONN supply range.
The integrated high-voltage protection to 54 volts on CC, V CONN1, and V CONN2 pins safeguards against accidental shorts to the high-voltage V BUS pin on the Type-C connector, providing enhanced user safety.
Additionally, its industrial temperature range of -40 to 85 degrees Celsius and system-level ESD protection on CC, V CONN1, and V CONN2 pins ensure reliability and durability under challenging conditions.
