The reference design permits operation within the occasion of no cable connection, saves energy and reduces warmth dissipation

Accelerating the design of easy-to-use, compact and environment friendly 27W energy adaptors is the brand new USB Sort-C Energy Supply 3.0 reference design with Programmable Energy Provide (PPS). Even when no cable is related, the reference design permits operation. The USB PPS helps save energy, scale back device-charging occasions and minimise warmth dissipation, reducing bill-of-materials prices on the system facet as effectively.

The STEVAL-USBPD27S reference design contains the STM32G071 microcontroller (MCU), which integrates an entire USB Sort-C Energy Supply controller on-chip, with the STCH03 state-of-the-art PWM controller and TCPP01-M12 USB Sort-C safety IC. With this reference design, customers can shortly construct fast-charging USB energy adaptors that meet the stringent European CoC model 5 Tier-2 and US DOE Degree VI necessities for minimal four-point common effectivity in lively mode and standby energy beneath 40mW.

The STM32G071 MCU handles all the digital management part, together with the algorithm to regulate VBUS on the secondary facet for adaptive synchronous rectification, which boosts power effectivity. The VBUS-control algorithm meets the USB Sort-C Energy Supply and PPS specs and implements cable-drop compensation for exact management of the provided voltage. PPS assist permits the output voltage to be adjusted in 20mV steps between 3.3V and 11V, in addition to present limiting adjustment in 50mA increments to minimise conversion losses throughout charging.

As an MCU-based answer, the reference design offers customers additional flexibility to implement further customised software layers and to include ongoing enhancements because the USB Energy Supply customary evolves.

The ability part of the STEVAL-USBPD27S leverages STCH03 PWM controller, which options built-in high-voltage start-up circuitry, primary-side constant-current output regulation and superior energy administration. Designed for quasi-resonant zero-voltage switching (ZVS) flyback converters, the STCH03 ensures excessive effectivity, ultra-low standby consumption and wonderful dynamic efficiency.

The STD7N65M6 MDmesh M6 primary-side high-voltage STPOWER MOSFET delivers extraordinarily excessive effectivity with optimised switching behaviour in exhausting and smooth switching modes.

Lastly, the TCPP01-M12 gives ±8kV ESD safety for the USB VBUS and Configuration Channel (CC) strains, assembly IEC 61000-4-2 Degree 4. There’s additionally short-circuit safety between the VBUS pins and CC strains and safety to stop gear harm if a faulty cable is inserted.

Accessible in a compact 59mm x 35mm x 21mm define with an influence density of 10.2 Watts per cubic inch, the STEVAL-USBPD27S can now be obtained from STMicroelectronics.
