USB PD as a single-cable solution is a smaller, thinner and more robust alternative to existing USB interconnects. It mostly addresses consumer goods chargers and adapters where small form factors, high reliability and a well-balanced performance-cost-ratio count.

This is where Infineon comes into play. Designers are served with a comprehensive semiconductor portfolio of low RDS(on) high-voltage and low-voltage power MOSFETs that accommodates high power density while appropriately addressing thermal management and potential EMI issues. Boards and magnetics are automatically assembled. The focus on SMD packages results in fewer external components as well as in improved production performance related cost savings. With planar transformers and soft-switching control, customers can easily come up with slim designs. The digital-based control allows customers to differentiate substantially. Infineon has already developed several high performance USB PD solutions, one of them being a ready-to-use USB PD 45 W reference design which is now available for ordering.
