All connecting ports to USB PD devices with the R9J02G012 will be able to electronically verify and trust its authenticity based on the certificates and public key infrastructure (PKI) defined in the USB Type-C Authentication specification. This mechanism allows system manufacturers to implement policies to examine the genuine origin of the connected PD devices such as cables and chargers before a high-power charging of (e.g., 20V at 3A) is executed.

Renesas has incorporated highly tamper-resistant technology and information management technology to prevent security attack attempts on the R9J02G012. The single package is said to reduce the mounting area on the board to less than 50 percent of that from the existing Renesas device. Mass production is scheduled to begin in early January 2018.
