New Update: Learn about the new HDMI® over USB-C™ Alternate Mode using Cypress EZ-PD™ solutions
EZ-USB® HX3C is the world's first USB 3.0 Type-C Hub with Power Delivery, supporting one downstream Type-C port and one upstream Type-C port. HX3C is Cypress's most integrated USB 3.0 hub, integrating a USB Billboard controller, an Arm Cortex-M0 CPU, 64KB flash, two Type-C transceivers, Type-C termination resistors, an ADC for overvoltage and overcurrent detection, Battery Charging Spec v1.2, Apple charging detection and ±15-kV ESD protection.
HX3C integrates four chips (USB Hub, USB Billboard and two USB PD controllers) into one, reducing BOM cost and solution footprint, making it ideal for USB Type-C dongles, docks and monitors. HX3C's configurable SuperSpeed and USB 2.0 PHY improves signal quality, giving board designers more flexibility and making USB-IF compliance easier.
Cypress has a USB Type-C monitor/dock reference design using HX3C. For more information, please visit the reference design page.
