Indie Semiconductor launches automotive industrie’s most integrated USB-PD programmable controller
Indie Semiconductor has launched a dual-channel USB Power Delivery (PD) IC that reduces component count, simplifies designs and enhances reliability of in-cabin vehicle charging systems for portable devices. Combining power conversion and control and supporting any configuration of USB Type A and Type C ports, the iND87300 is the automotive industry’s most integrated USB-PD firmware programmable controller.
OEMs are focused on enhancing the in-cabin experience allowing drivers and passengers to safely connect and fast charge personal devices inside the vehicle. Automotive USB-based power delivery is rapidly evolving to support higher power charging requirements of products such as tablets and laptops with an increasing number of ports throughout the cabin. The iND87300 has been designed to meet these challenging system requirements through an ultra-small form factor with minimal components. Further, the iND87300 supports field upgradability to future proof device interoperability and user experience utilizing indie’s firmware tools and global support.
