Power Integrations Announces Successful Certifications of USB PD Adapters Using InnoSwitch3 ICs


Designs achieved compliance with USB PD 3.0 + PPS standard; dynamically
configurable InnoSwitch3-Pro ICs facilitate fast charging of
smartphones, notebooks and tablets

Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI),
the leader in high-voltage integrated circuits for energy-efficient
power conversion, today announced that a range of adapter designs based
on Power Integrations' InnoSwitch™3-Pro
and InnoSwitch3-CP ICs have achieved compliance with USB Power Delivery
(PD) 3.0 standards. During a recent workshop in Portland, Oregon, nine
adapter designs featuring InnoSwitch3 devices – including several
designs submitted by leading power-supply manufacturers – successfully
completed USB PD 3.0 compliance testing. Several of the successful
designs incorporated the advanced PPS (Programmable Power Supply) option
within the USB PD 3.0 standard, which enables faster charging of
smartphones, tablets and notebooks without generating dangerously high
levels of heat in the device itself.

The dynamically configurable InnoSwitch3-Pro
integrated switcher IC family from Power Integrations enables digital
micro-stepping of voltage and current for precise battery charge
control. Capable of delivering up to 65 W and achieving up to 94%
efficiency across line and load conditions, the new devices may be
paired with a microcontroller or take inputs from a system CPU to
control and monitor the off-line power supply.

supports virtually any rapid-charging protocol, including USB PD 3.0 +
PPS, Quick Charge™ 4/4+, AFC, VOOC, SCP, FCP and other industrial and
consumer battery charger standards, as well as applications in dimmable
LED ballast drivers and field-configurable industrial power supplies.

Comments Shyam Dujari, director of product marketing for Power
Integrations: "USB PD 3.0 will be ubiquitous in mobile devices in the
very near future. The PPS option is important not only for smartphones
and tablets but also now for notebook computers due to the thermal
constraints of today's super-thin form factors. With efficiency of up to
94%, our InnoSwitch3-Pro IC family enables devices to run cool, while
also reducing the system BOM."

samples are available now, priced at $1.12, in 10,000-piece quantities.
