In recent years, the demand for reducing commercial waste has grown in Europe. Among other things, universal, worldwide applicable chargers and connectors for electronic devices are to be developed and applied. Accordingly, the interest in the USB Type C connector developed by the USB Implementers Forum and the USB Power Delivery standard is a trendsetting interface with a compact plug-in connector that, in contrast to earlier USB connectors, is not sensitive to its orientation when plugged.
USB Power Delivery is a USB Power Expansion Standard for delivering up to 100W via USB. This enables the power supply of larger devices, such as laptops, which could not be supplied with the conventional USB technology. At the same time, the loading times of portable devices are considerably reduced. According to the USBPD protocol, the connected devices handle the power requirements among themselves in order to determine the optimum values for voltage and current.
