EZ-PD™ CCG3PA Controller Enables High-speed Charging with Greater
Portability for Growing USB-C Market

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ:CY) today announced that its USB-C
controller with USB Power Delivery (PD) was selected by Anker for
integration into Anker's new family of USB-C chargers. As the global
leader in charging technology, Anker's new PowerPort PD chargers with
Cypress' EZ-PD™
CCG3PA USB-C controller
deliver high-speed USB-C charging
performance in smaller form factors for greater portability.

Cypress is the market leader in USB controller technology, and its USB-C
controllers are being widely adopted by the world's top-tier electronics
manufacturers including Anker. With the integration of Cypress' EZ-PD
CCG3PA with USB PD, Anker's new family of PowerPort PD chargers deliver
up to 2.5x faster charging times than standard USB-C power adapters. And
because the EZ-PD CCG3PA controller is compact with a highly-integrated
architecture, this helped enable Anker to reduce its own charger
dimensions by up to 40%.

"Cypress USB-C controllers provide our engineering team with the design
flexibility and programmability required to build Anker's new generation
of USB-C fast-charging solutions," said Steven Yang, CEO of Anker
Innovations. "The new PowerPort chargers are the most versatile yet and
will allow our customers to charge virtually any USB-C device at full
speed."

"Anker is the recognized global leader in the charging market and these
new products are an exciting showcase of the great benefits that our
USB-C controller technology bring to our customers," said Ajay
Srikrishna, vice president of Cypress' Wired Connectivity Business Unit.
"The EZ-PD CCG3PA controller streamlines the design of USB-C power
source products, making it the controller of choice for market leaders
like Anker."

USB-C is gaining rapid support with top-tier electronics manufacturers
by enabling slim industrial designs, easy-to-use connectors and cables,
the ability to transmit multiple protocols, and provide up to 100 Watts
of power. The USB-C standard's 2.4-mm-high connector plug is also
significantly smaller than the current 4.5-mm USB Standard-A connector,
enabling easier integration for a wider range of devices.
