TAIPEI, Taiwan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--COMPUTEX TAIPEI – Fresco Logic, a leading technology provider that develops high-speed connectivity ICs and solutions for the computer, mobile, and smart electronic device market, today introduced the FL7100 series, a new family of stand-alone USB Power Delivery Controller products, supporting one or two ports, that will bring the latest USB Power Delivery features from USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) into a highly integrated IC. The new USB PD controllers support the USB Power Delivery 3.0 and USB Type-C™ specifications and can be used not only in PC and smart phone applications, but also a wide range of devices such as PC peripherals, AC adapters, projectors, robots, and other consumer electronics.
“Enhancements to USB PD furthers the product versatility and market differentiation for solution providers such as Fresco Logic,” said Jeff Ravencraft, President and COO of USB-IF. “Fresco demonstrates their ongoing commitment to the industry and their customers by aggressively integrating the latest USB specifications into their products.”
The FL7100 series incorporates the latest USB Power Delivery features, Fast Role Swap, the new TCPC standard, UCSI, Billboard device, and a DisplayPort Aux switch to distribute video over DP from the host to the display, all in a single IC, enabling a variety of host and device power implementations. Complementing Fresco’s USB PD-enabled USB 3.1 hub products, the standalone USB PD controllers within this family target specific applications such as host-side controllers that take advantage of the enhanced features of the latest USB PD specification, device side controllers, or power adaptors, in either single or dual-port versions. BOM cost is drastically reduced by integrating the MCU, firmware storage, VCONN switching, and LDOs.
“With the addition of the FL7100 family, we now complete our full line up of USB Type-C and USB PD products that will allow our customers to design the complete system from host, through the cable, to the device with our highly integrated and compatibility-proven products,” said Robert McVay, CTO of Fresco Logic. “We have had an incredible customer response to our FL7001 e-Marker IC, FL5002 Hub with integrated USB Type-C and USB PD, and our FL7002 USB Type-C port controller. FL7100 with newly enhanced USB PD 3.0 features allows us to complete our USB PD ecosystem portfolio by efficiently addressing host applications.”
Availability: The FL7100 family is available in a 5x5 mm2 package with 32, 40, or 48 pins, depending on application. The FL7100 family will sample in early Q3 for early adopters with general availability in Q4 of this year, including reference designs and boards.
Related Fresco Products: FL5002 is Fresco Logic’s flagship USB 3.1 hub controller chip featuring USB-C and PD. FL7001 is the world’s smallest e-Marker chip that comes in a WLCSP package measuring just 1.64x0.84 mm2, for ultra-compact designs. FL7002 targets the mobile phone and power supply markets. These products are all currently in mass production.
Fresco Logic will demonstrate its USB-C and USB PD portfolio, along with its F-One™ Aggregation Solution for Contactless applications, at Computex Taipei, from May 31 to June 3 at the W-Hotel Taipei. For more information, please contact Sales@frescologic.com or Marketing@frescologic.com.
