STMicroelectronics’ STUSB1700 is an IC controller that is fully compliant with the USB type-C cable and connector specification (rev. 1.2). This AEC-Q100-qualified device addresses 5V USB type-C port management on the host side. It is fully autonomous and allows the advertising of the current capability to be managed by external pins. With an operational temperature range of -40°C to 105°C, programmable current limit (up to 600mA), under-voltage lockout, and over-current, over-voltage, and thermal protection, this controller is suitable for implementing power sharing capabilities, or external temperature protection mechanism with current capability adjustment.
