Diodes Incorporated’s PI3A6386 USB Type-C multimedia port switch enables legacy data and audio signals to be passed through the USB Type-C port, allowing consumers to continue using existing peripherals. Packaged in the TQFN-24 package, the PI3A6386 port switch ensures a high level of audio quality, without signal distortion or noise. It includes autonomous microphone and ground line switching, while its CMOS design delivers an ON resistance of just 1Ω for the audio switching transistor. Low crosstalk between data and audio channels was also a design priority for the PI3A6386, and it succeeds here with a crosstalk rejection of -85dB at 30kHz.
Other design features include a programmable soft-start and soft-stop time, which eliminates the pop and click that audio signals can experience when they are DC-coupled. This delivers an audio experience free from distortion. The PI3A6386 operates from a supply of between 1.7V and 5.5V, making it suitable for portable devices. It can also process signals of ±3V, which further improves the dynamic range and audio quality.
