Microchip UTC2000: USB Type-C Controller

Microchip UTC2000

Microchip UTC2000 is arguably the best thing to happen to consumer connectivity since Bluetooth. It was introduced in 2014 right after the introduction of USB 3.1 USB type C connectors that have since stolen the spotlight since they are reversible since they embody the same non-oriented connector on both ends. USB-C is small, robust and can handle up to 10 Bits/s, 100W of power and graphics through one single cable.

The UTC2000 controller has been designed for USB 2.0 and 3.0 DFP and UFP applications. It can be designed into any existing product to upgrade them to USB Type-C. It offers a means of detecting a USB Type C when its inserted. It also detects the direction the cable is plugged and controls the system to do its job. It comes in small package size and is available in consumer, industrial and extended temperature and automotive versions.
