The PTN5110 IC targeted primarily for use in system platforms (e.g. Notebook PCs, Desktop PCs, Chromebooks, Tablets, Convertible, etc.). It implements Type-C Configuration Channel (CC) interface and USB PD Physical layer functions to a type-C Port Manager (TCPM) that handles PD Policy management. It is designed to comply with USB PD, Type-C and TCPC specifications. Other use cases may be feasible depending on the application architecture, e.g. docks, monitors, accessories, cable adapters, smartphones etc.

It can support various type-C roles: Sink, Source, Sink with accessory support or DRP. It implements Type-C CC analog portion (i.e Rd/Rp/Ra detection, Rd/Rp indication) and PD Tx/Rx PHY and protocol state machines. PTN5110 supports TCPM in system realization of the following PD roles:

  • Provider (P)
  • Provider/Consumer (P/C)
  • Consumer (C)
  • Consumer/Provider (C/P)

Why Used
