FTDI Chip High-Speed USB Bridge ICs with Type-C Controllers

FTDI Chip High-Speed USB Bridge ICs with Type-C/PD 3.0 Controllers fully support the latest USB Type-C and Power Delivery (PD) standards. This enables the support for power negotiation with the ability to sink or source current to USB host devices. These high-speed USB bridge devices feature up to two PD ports viz, PD1 port and PD2 port. The PD1 port shares the same Type-C connector with USB data and the PD2 port is the power port only without USB data. The high-speed USB bridge ICs support 5V, 9V, 12V, 15V, and 20V PDO profiles and these profiles are configurable through an external EEPROM at power-up/reset.

The high-speed USB bridges offer up to 40Mbytes/s data rates and multi-channel interfacing. The benefit of a multi-channel bridge is that the system BOM is reduced by removing the need for a USB hub chip. Additionally, each channel of the device appears to the host PC as a separate device. This enables each channel to be independently configured for different modes such as UART, MPSSE, or FIFO. Also, with different parameters such as 4 UARTS all operating with different baud rates.


  • Supports PD specification Rev 3.0
  • 2 USB PD 3.0 port support:
    • Port 1 mode configuration for Sink or Dual-role
    • Port 2 works as Sink, supporting charge through to Port 1
  • Support 5V 3A, 9V 3A, 12V 3A, 15V 3A, and 20V 3A PDOs as sink or source
  • Type-C/PD physical layer protocol
  • PD policy engine using 32-bit RISC controller with 8kB data RAM and 48kB code ROM
  • PD mode configuration through external EEPROM
  • Options to use external MCU controlling PD policy through I2C interface
  • USB 2.0 high speed (480Mbits/second) and full-speed (12Mbits/second) compatible
  • Adjustable receive buffer timeout
  • Multi-Protocol Synchronous Serial Engine (MPSSE) to simplify the synchronous serial protocol (USB to JTAG, I2C (MASTER), SPI (MASTER), or bit-bang) design
  • FTDI royalty-free Virtual Com Port (VCP) and Direct (D2XX) drivers eliminate the requirement for USB driver development in most cases
  • Highly integrated design includes 1.2V LDO regulator for VCORE and integrated POR function
  • Low operating and USB suspend current
  • USB Bulk data transfer mode (512-byte packets in high-speed mode)
  • Fully assisted hardware or X-On / X-Off software handshaking
  • Extended -40°C to 85°C industrial operating temperature range
  • Available in Pb-free QFN-56/QFN-46/QFN-76/QFN-68/LQDP-80 packages (RoHS compliant)
