Infineon Technologies has launched an Electronically-Marked Cable Assembly (EMCA) controller for USB-C cables with voltage protection up to 54V.

The EZ-PD CMG2 (Cable Marker Generation 2) controller is designed to deliver robust USB-C Power Delivery (PD) for applications such as Extended Power Range (EPR) USB-C, USB4, and Thunderbolt passive cables.

The 3.3mm2 dedicated EMCA controller is designed for passive non-Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt Type-C cables and supports USB-PD 3.1 and Type-C 2.1 standards. The controller can handle USB4 and TBT4 data rates and up to 240 W (48 V/5 A) of power.

The integrated high-voltage protection of up to 54 V on CC, V CONN1, and V CONN2 pins safeguards against accidental shorts to the high-voltage V BUS pin on the Type-C connector, providing enhanced user safety. Additionally, its industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C and system-level ESD protection on CC, V CONN1, and V CONN2 pins ensure reliability and durability under challenging conditions.

The controller has an integrated V BUS-to-CC short circuit protection up to 54 V and V BUS-to-V CONN short circuit protection up to 54 V and supports R A weakening to reduce power consumption and integrates an oscillator and IEC ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection, eliminating the need for external clock and external ESD, respectively. The high system reliability and compatibility result in cost-effective and easy-to-design products with a smaller board footprint for manufacturers.

A configurable 47-byte storage space is available for vendor- and cable-specific configuration data and operates within a 2.7 to 5.5 V V CONN supply range to provide compatibility with various USB-C devices and cables.

The EZ-PD CMG2 EMCA controller with EPR is available in a compact 9-ball Wafer-Level Chip Scale Package (WLCSP) and can be ordered now.
