Make Your Automotive Dual USB Type-C with USB Power Delivery Design Cool and Flexible

July 21, 2021
This design solution reviews the challenges of designing an automotive dual USB Type-C™ with USB power delivery system. The module temperature rise must be below 40°C. The automotive battery voltage undergoes wide swings. The data lines must be adequately protected, and the design must be flexible and adaptable to different form factors. A buck-boost controller IC and a protection IC chipset enable a small and flexible module that operates within allowed thermal limits.
