The 2014 is just started, bringing new products for the USB Power Delivery Standard. And the CES 2014 in Las Vegas is the greatest event for such announcements.
Etron Technology, Inc. , a semiconductor company based in Taiwan, specializing in buffer memory and system-on-chips, just announced the availability of the USB Power Delivery (PD) Controller IC – EJ888, based on the USB-IF’s USB Power Delivery Rev. 1.0 specification, which enables USB power delivery from 10 watts to 100 watts, and significantly reduces device charging time. The device implements a Battery Charging 1.2 interface.
“For early market engagement, Etron’s latest USB Power Delivery Controller IC EJ888 is based on the USB Power Delivery Rev. 1.0 specification. In addition, it supports USB-IF Battery Charging 1.2 for any portable device. The EJ888 Chip enables higher voltage and current in order to deliver power up to 100 watts, with 20V to the full 5A, via USB. Utilizing bi-directional power delivery, EJ188 automatically detects current sources and sinks, and performs a negotiated handshake via VBus. It allows users to access simple Plug-and-Charge via USB and meets the needs of USB PD developers,” said Dr. Nicky Lu, Etron Technology Chairman & CEO.
At the moment no more information are available, but Etron will display and demonstrate its cutting-edge EJ888 at CES 2014 from January 7th to 10th. Looking for more informations.
