USB Type-C connector is taking over the world and Richtek can help

USB Type-C connection is finally becoming ubiquitous. Are you still looking for USB Type-C power solutions? Richtek has got you covered. We have developed USB Type-C PD products over the past few years. From travel adapters to system applications, we offer a complete product portfolio that can be used with our current sensing monitors, battery chargers, or battery fuel gauges. This removes design problems of compatibility originating from having different suppliers.

TCPC or TCPM Solutions?

For applications which require TCPC (USB Type-C Port Controllers), we offer both sink only PD controllers and bi-directional Buck-Boost controllers for single-/multiple- battery applications. For applications which require TCPM (USB Type-C port manager), we provide highly integrated PD and Buck-Boost controllers as well as discrete solutions. In the video, you will find out how to choose between TCPC and TCPM solutions and see what we offer.

Reference Designs of Travel Adapters

One of Richtek’s most popular reference designs is for travel adapters: RT7755 + RT7220A + RT7202K with over 30 million pieces shipped so far. In the video, we will explain why it is so popular as well as explain the key features of each product. For 65W small-sized travel adapters, we have launched the new total solution: RT7757 + RT7220D + RT7206K compact in size with high performance, which makes it an ideally small-sized choice like GaN adapters. Additionally, would you like to have a sneak peek on our latest USB PD 3.1 140W solution for tablet PCs?

Richtek total PD System Solutions

We have launched the RT1718S for multi-port TCPC applications. It has been widely used in AMD system platform, chrome books and other applications as well. To convert DC jacks to type-C port, we offer the RT1719, which is easy-to-use and hassle-free without any firmware setting. It can be applied in applications up to 100W. For TCPM applications, the RT7882 and the RT7885 can support up to 4S battery designs.

On the system side, we have the RT6190/1A/0G Buck-Boost control series, which have UL certifications. We will talk about their key features and the design examples of applications with 5S~7S batteries. We also have RTQ6050/2/3/6 current sensors to complete your designs.
