Enabling advanced multimedia and charging

Infineon Technologies has introduced the EZ-PD CCG7D, a dual-port USB-C power delivery (PD) solution with integrated boost controller for in-car charging applications. The device complies with the latest USB Type-C and PD specifications (Ver. 3.1) and is AEC Q-100 qualified. 

The PD solution is designed for automotive applications supporting Display Port (DP) in alternate mode. The solution was implemented in collaboration with Li Auto, a Chinese manufacturer for new energy vehicles, in its new SUV model L9. It lets USB devices charge while simultaneously sharing multimedia content with the vehicle. The device suits automotive charging applications, such as head unit chargers, rear seat chargers and rear seat entertainment systems.

Infineon’s senior vice president and general manager wired connectivity solutions, Ganesh Subramaniam, said: “As a leading provider of USB-C PD solutions for consumer and computing applications, Infineon offers seamless interoperability for the automotive market by enabling both USB-C PD charging and display port alternate mode capabilities with the EZ-PD CCG7D.”
