This level of protection for USB Type-C ports is an industry first, according to the manufacturer who says competitive solutions are more than 350% slower to respond, which results in risk of system failure during short-to-VBUS events. The chip provides ESD, surge, and OVP for USB Type-C CC/VCONN and SBU signal lines, keeping internal data line voltages below 6V. Integrated ESD protection eliminates the need for external TVS diodes. It comes packaged in RoHS and green compliant 1.7x2.1mm wafer-level chip-scale packaging.
