Analogix Introduces ANX7447 Family of USB-C Single-Chip Port Controllers With Power Delivery Version 3.0

May 31 2017, 03:00
Analogix Semiconductor announced the availability of its SlimPort ANX7447 family of single-chip USB Power Delivery (PD) version 3.0 port controllers with DisplayPort Alt Mode mux, enabling the latest USB-C charging technology for next generation notebooks, desktops, and 2-in-1 PCs. This latest USB-C charging solution completes Analogix’s offering for next generation PCs, accessories and connected devices.


Introduced at Computex 2017, the highly-integrated, ultra-low power ANX7447 solution from Analogix was designed as a companion to various CPUs and Application Processors (APs) and offers comprehensive functionality, including Extended Messaging and Fast Role Swap. This enables faster PD firmware updates (PDFU) and provides an efficient exchange of security certificates, while allowing a PC accessory to change modes from sourcing to sinking power quickly, preventing data corruption during an unforeseen power source disconnect.

The new solution from Analogix offers native USB-C port controller interface (TCPCI) for ease of integration with the existing USB-C port manager (TCPM), and supports Intel’s Direct Connect Interface (DCI) Closed Chassis Debug, with support for high-speed interfaces, such as USB 3.1 up to Gen 2 10Gbps and DisplayPort 1.4 at up to HBR3 8.1Gbps.

“ANX7447 family enables the powerful new PD 3.0 features which provide the functionality and flexibility needed in best-in-class notebooks,” said Andre Bouwer, vice president of marketing for Analogix. “These, together with Analogix’s 10G re-timing switch and other products, give Analogix the most advanced portfolio for USB-C enablement.”

Analogix Semiconductor is a leading provider of end-to-end interface connectivity semiconductor solutions for DisplayPort, including its high-speed signal conditioners and SlimPort family of products. SlimPort branded products are compliant with the VESA DisplayPort standards, including Mobility DisplayPort (MyDP), and DisplayPort Alternate Mode over the USB Type-C connector. |
